Financing details

Saxo offers access to crypto through exchange traded products (ETPs) and a variety of Crypto FX pairs e.g. BTCUSD, LTCEUR and ETHJPY.

A crypto wallet is not required because you do not own the underlying coins when trading ETPs or Crypto FX pairs. This also means that there is no need for cold storage solutions or recovery seeds.

Saxo does not allow funding or withdrawal in cryptocurrencies.

Crypto FX pairs are available on the SaxoTraderGO and SaxoTraderPRO platforms.
Crypto FX pairs support fractional trading which allows you to trade in fractions of a crypto.

This provides the possibility to scale your position with greater precision and does not limit you to trading crypto in full integer amounts.

Crypto FX is open for trading 24 hours a day, 5½ days a week, opening on Sunday evening at 18:00 Eastern Time (ET) and closing on Friday evening 17:00 Eastern Time.

Please note that the underlying crypto market remains open on weekends and any Crypto FX exposure should be managed and adjusted before the FX trading session closes on Friday evening.

The trading profit/loss will always be settled in the second currency in the Crypto FX pair which is always the fiat currency e.g. BTCUSD will be settled in USD and converted to your account currency.
Crypto FX positions do not settle into physical crypto. Instead, open positions held at the end of a trading day (17:00 Eastern Standard Time) are rolled forward to the next available business day.
