Take a view on price movements

Trade Bitcoin or Ether exactly how you trade forex or other markets with InterTrader. No exchanges, no wallets – simply open and close your position.

Exciting opportunities

With average moves of 5-10% a day, cryptocurrency volatility offers greater trading opportunities than even the most liquid forex pairs.

Leverage your trades

Unlike buying and holding Bitcoin and Ether, with spread betting and CFDs you can use leverage to magnify your risk/return ratio.

Go long or short

With CFDs and spread betting you can choose the direction in which to trade. Whether prices are going up or down, you can take a position.

Risk management tools

Trading cryptocurrencies carries a high level of risk, so make sure you use our risk management tools to protect your potential downside.

For UK taxpayers, profits from spread betting are free from capital gains tax or stamp duty*.
