easyMarkets has sweetened its offering to include TradingView, Bitcoin funding method, crypto and stock trading, zero spread trading without margin requirements, fixed spreads, free and guaranteed SL and TP, negative balance protection, and allowing users to undo losing trades in 1, 3, or 6 hours after opening a position.

easyMarkets has added six popular cryptocurrencies to its trading offering available on the web, mobile app, MetaTrader 4, and TradingView.

The trading company is determined to provide a multi-asset trading experience for its users via CFD instruments, that include global indices, energy, metals, cryptocurrencies, stocks, and forex.

Thomas Tsaloupis, Head of Risk Management at easyMarkets said: “We’re delighted to now offer our clients an even wider selection of cryptos to trade from, with some of these new additions only available on easyMarkets.

“The interest in cryptocurrencies from both professional and retail investors is only growing, which is why we’re pleased to provide our clients with the opportunity to partake in its future growth. easyMarkets is committed to staying on the front line of this evolution, and we’ll continuously innovate as the financial markets evolve.

“I’d like to take this opportunity also to point out that we’ve allowed our clients to trade Crypto CFDs 24/7 on our proprietary platform with tight-fixed spreads for the past four years!”

The six additions to the crypto trading offering at easyMarkets are high-performing assets with an extraordinary year-over-year growth: Solana (+12,029.4%), Cardano (+1920.5%), Polkadot (+907.9%), Uniswap (+848.2%), Algorand (+559%), and ChainLink (+164.8%).

Most FX brokers are still yet to add cryptocurrencies to their offering, which puts easyMarkets in a distinctive position within the industry, alongside the other brokers who have done the same.

The easyMarkets trading offering features more than 200 CFD instruments that can be traded on margin with tight fixed spreads, negative balance protection, free guaranteed stop loss, and no slippage on the Web and App platforms.

The broker has gone out of its way to accommodate “Hodlers”, including the creation of a Bitcoin Base Currency account.

This means that users can trade all of the 12 CFD cryptos and 200+ other instruments with physical Bitcoin, as well as deposit and withdraw in Bitcoin, without the need to exchange your Bitcoin funds to FIAT currencies.

The Bitcoin Base Currency account is, however, not available to clients who reside in the European Union.

easyMarkets has been dedicated to innovating the trading conditions for its users, having launched multiple tools that help clients manage their exposure when on the markets.

This includes the “dealCancellation” that allows traders to undo losing trades in 1, 3, or 6 hours after opening a position.

The easyTrade ticket allows zero spread trading without margin requirements and a locked-in maximum level of exposure set by the trader, as well as tight fixed spreads that never change during trading hours, free and guaranteed stop loss and take profit and negative balance protection.
