IC Markets Enriches Its Offering With Four Cryptocurrencies

Latest News

International Capital Markets (IC Markets), an Australian-based ECN foreign exchange provider, has expanded its list of tradable products by adding four new cryptoccurencies.

Except from Bitcoin, clients will be able to trade Ethereum (ETH/USD), Bitcoin Cash (BCH/USD), Lite Coin (LTC/USD), and Dash Coin (DSH/USD).

Fulfilling client needs

The new additions came as the aftermath of the increased global demand for cryptocurrencies. The broker made possible for its clients to trade Bitcoin in August this year.

“As a speculative medium, there are few products in the world that can compare with Cryptos right now. Since our clients are active traders, we give them the products with the best opportunities to trade as well as the best trading conditions to fully exploit these opportunities. These additions highlight our commitment to provide our clients with opportunities relevant to the current financial landscape,” said Angus Walker, IC Markets Director.

It is important to emphasize that the new cryptocurrencies will be also offered as CFDs, enabling traders to go long or short on margin. The new cryptos are highly liquid and well supported across multiple exchanges.

2017 has been the year of cryptocurrencies with not just Bitcoin receiving increment in trading activity.
