Cryptocurrency Index Trading

Trade CFDs on baskets of cryptocurrencies with our All Crypto Index, Major Crypto Index and Emerging Crypto Index.

Our crypto indices offer a unique, cost-effective way to trade on the wider cryptocurrency market without having to trade multiple individual coins.

Each crypto index comprises a selection of cryptocurrencies grouped and weighted by market capitalization (market cap). The market cap is calculated by multiplying the number of units of a specific coin by its current market value against the US dollar.

When a cryptocurrency goes up in value, its market cap will increase, and therefore the value of the crypto index will rise, and conversely, when cryptocurrency prices fall against the US dollar, the value of the crypto index will fall.

There are several benefits to crypto index trading, rather than multiple individual cryptocurrencies. Firstly, it can be a more cost-effective way of trading on cryptocurrencies, as it allows you to take a view on the sector as a whole without having to open a position on each individual coin. Trading on a crypto index can also help distribute some of your risk, as you aren’t exposed to a single coin.

However, it's important to be aware that CFDs are high-risk, speculative products. High volatility combined with leverage could lead to significant losses. As with any leveraged product, profits and losses are magnified as they are based on the total value of your position, not just your initial deposit on a particular trade. While you could make a profit if the market moves in your favour, you could also make a loss if the trade moves against you, particularly if you don’t have adequate risk-management cover in place.

We aim to provide a diverse, balanced view of the cryptocurrency market's performance. This means for the Major Crypto Index, we have established a cap so that no single cryptocurrency can constitute a weighting of greater than 40% of the index. While no individual constituent currently makes up of more than 40% of the Emerging Crypto Index we may establish a cap of 40% for this index should it become necessary at a future date. Finally, the All Crypto Index gives 60% of the total weighting to the major cryptocurrencies, and 40% of the total to the emerging cryptocurrencies. Each individual cryptocurrency is then weighted equally within the banding. The weighting of any uncapped component that then fall below a 5% floor will be increased to that value taking proportional market capitalization from any uncapped index component.

We monitor these crypto indices periodically to see whether any adjustments need to be made to constituent weightings. They will also minitor closely for any hard or soft forks which may mean adjustments to the constituent cryptocurrencies are necessary. In the event that such adjustments are made, we will also change the index divisor to ensure that there is no resulting impact on the index prices.
