CEX.IO Broker was born out of the necessity to allow market participants to benefit from both up and down price movements of cryptocurrencies. With CEX.IO Broker, users can both long and short cryptocurrencies by trading CFDs (Contracts for difference) on margin with up to 2x leverage.
Unlike other margin trading platforms, CEX.IO Broker offers more trading flexibility with an option to maintain multiple independent trading accounts for executing different trading styles and strategies. Margin is isolated between separate trading accounts, and cross-margin is used within each trading account.
CEX.IO Broker is a standalone margin trading platform and an important part of the CEX.IO ecosystem. Both the derivative platform (CEX.IO Broker) and spot trading platform (CEX.IO Exchange) share the same login, meaning you can switch between them without logging out. The transfers of funds between the two are free and instant.
With CEX.IO Exchange behind CEX.IO Broker, you are dealing with the team that has been in the cryptocurrency industry from 2011, run the cryptocurrency exchange from 2013, and has served millions of customers across the globe. Though the younger brother CEX.IO Broker is certainly more daring than its older sibling, CEX.IO Exchange, it definitely also inherits the same serious DNA.
