Tickmill Becomes Latest Forex Broker to Offer Bitcoin CFDs

Retail FX, CFDs and precious metals broker Tickmill began its foray into the cryptocurrency space this week with a new Bitcoin CFD offering. In an email to all clients sent out yesterday, Tickmill said:
“Bitcoin has joined our growing list of trading instruments, offering you the chance to invest in one of the world’s most popular cryptocurrencies while enjoying our competitive trading conditions.”
While the cryptocurrecy markets trade 24/7, Tickmill’s Bitcoin/USD CFD pair will trade 24/5, and traders will be limited to maximum leverage of 1:20.

Tickmill is the latest Forex broker to start offering bitcoin trading pairs, following in the footsteps of other well-known brokers like FXOpen, who recently began offering CFDs on six major cryptocurrencies to clients registered with its branch in the United Kingdom.
