CFI Financial ramps up crypto offering, adds 250+ new CFDs

abdelaziz Fathi

CFI Financial Group, a multi-regulated FX and CFDs brokerage firm, has once again expanded its contracts-for-difference (CFDs) offering, this time with the addition of 250+ cryptocurrency products on MetaTrader 5.

The range of cryptos offered by CFI not only includes the traditional products found across the industry but also presents its global clients with the opportunity to trade cryptocurrency CFDs paired against Gold and Dow Jones, to name a few.

The introduction of new instruments adds to the broker’s rapidly expanding suite of cryptos, following strong demand from clients over the past few months.

By trading cryptocurrencies in the form of CFDs, traders have the opportunity to invest in their price without having to actually buy them. Furthermore, they can take advantage of a wide array of traditional trading tools such as leverage and stop orders.

The massive range of volatility exhibited in these instruments creates an ideal environment for investors in CFDs, many of whom are looking for ways to buy into the cryptos’ bear run, just as they were able to bet against their rapid rise over the past two years.

CFI continues to transfer activity to the MT5

Retail traders have increasingly demanded access to cryptocurrency exposure, which in turn has prompted brokers to expand their respective offerings. With traders now looking to tap into the crypto boom, CFI has answered the call for its client base with CFD trading on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin, amongst others.

As CFI continues to transfer activity to the MT5 terminal, it was also imperative to increase the base of assets and products into the platform, in order to accommodate its entire client base.

Commenting on the news, the Founders and Managing Directors of CFI Financial Group, Hisham Mansour and Eduardo Fakhoury said: “At CFI, we always look to transcend the previous milestone and this time around, we believe that with this largely unique and unmatched product, we have managed to deliver on our promise of providing an ever-expanding range of products where traders and investors can find new opportunities and diversify their holdings. This specific addition to our current range goes beyond the flexibility of CFDs with leverage and no-leverage and dives deep into an entirely new world of trading.”

Dr. Demetrios Zamboglou, Chief Operating Officer of the CFI Financial Group added: “While demand for cryptos played a role in adding it to our platform, our optimized infrastructure allowed us to create an entirely new range of products that has not been introduced to the masses yet. Aside from the uniqueness of the product, we are offering it in the form of a 2-in-1 package where clients can trade with leverage or no leverage and on some of the most competitive trading conditions out there alongside the top-tier service that CFI is known for. In other words, we are not just offering something new, we are adding a future-proof product that will allow traders to tackle a new market for years ahead.”
