Next Level Trading with Cryptocurrency Futures

Bitcoin and digital assets are volatile investments. Many traders attempt to manage their risk simply by buying an asset when the price drops or selling it when the price goes up. The downside of this tactic is that oftentimes money is left on the table after you leave the market. If the price continues to rise after you sell, for example, you’re missing out on profits you could’ve earned had you left your position open. A key benefit of futures trading is that you can hedge existing spot positions without additional crypto – allowing you to be agile and prepared for any market environment. Cryptocurrency futures allow you to maximize your returns by utilizing the power of leverage to multiply your profits and apply advanced trading strategies. Use futures to speculate on the direction of the market and minimize risk, all while holding less crypto than on a spot exchange.

What is futures trading?

Futures, or futures contracts, are an agreement to buy or sell an asset at a later date for a fixed price. They are typically used by traders as a way to hedge other investments or to lock in profits when trading in volatile markets. The prices for Kraken’s futures are based on aggregated indices that represent the demand for each cryptocurrency from a variety of exchanges, so pricing is always clear and transparent. There are a number of benefits to this type of trading.
