Weekend Trading

Markets.com is glad to announce Weekend Trading, enabling Cryptocurrency trading on Saturdays and Sundays.

If you are too busy working 9 to 5 during weekdays, don’t worry, we have you covered! You now have the opportunity for the weekend trading of four cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dash.  

Why Trade Bitcoin?

The Bitcoin has seen numerous surges in its value in recent history, including a spike from double digits to $1000 in just a few weeks. In fact, the price has already doubled in 2017 and hit the $2000 milestone, with a current $39.2 billion in market cap. There is still a lot of steam left in this cryptocurrency, thanks to:

  • Increase in the number of firms involved in trading bitcoin, like JPMorgan and Fidelity.
  • Japan's recognition of the digital currency as a legal form of payment.
  • Higher demand for Bitcoin across the world along with surges in other currency prices.

When To Trade Bitcoin on Markets.com?

  • The popular, high-volatile cryptocurrency is available for trading all through the week.
  • Trading closes at 05:00 GMT on Sundays and re-opens again at 21:00 GMT.

Why Trade Ethereum?

Ethereum has already gone up by more than 2,300% in the past year. While Bitcoin is about payment technology, Ethereum's focus is on smart contracts and currently has a market cap of $18.6 billion. This current surge can possibly continue, thanks to various factors like:

  • Increased backing of Ethereum block chain by corporates and formation of group the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA).
  • Increasing popularity of Initial Coin Offerings (ICO).
  • Higher interest from major tech players like Microsoft and Intel.
  • The possibility of upcoming regulation, which would limit the opportunities for abuse of these currencies.

When To Trade Ethereum on Markets.com?

  • Ethereum is now available to trade over the weekend.
  • Trading closes at 05:00 GMT on Sundays and re-opens again at 21:00 GMT.

Why Trade Litecoin?

Litecoin is on a fast track in recent times, snapping up the 4th position among popular cryptocurrencies and inching closer to the coveted top 3 spot. Litecoin reported a record surge of 1,200% when it moved from a mere $3.85 to $51 in the past 3 months. In fact, the 24-hour trading volume has already crossed $1 billion market cap for the first time in July 2017. Litecoin’s prices are on a steady rise and this momentum could continue thanks to:

  • Successful implementation of scaling solution called SegWit. This has resulted in a clear roadmap which outlines plans for Litecoin in the upcoming year and beyond.
  • Support from Bitgo for developing secure Litecoin solutions, which is expected to radically increase the number of exchanges supporting Litecoin.
  • Resignation of Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, from Coinbase, for “focusing more on Litecoin”.

Why Trade Dash?

Currently clinching the #7 position among cryptocurrencies, Dash is now trading above $200 for the first time. This privacy-focused cryptocurrency had hit its record price of $100 just a few months ago in March. A flurry of new users have rushed to adopt Dash, resulting in a total market cap of $1.5 billion for Dash Blockchain. But all signs point that this is just the beginning for this fast-growing cryptocurrency. Another rally seems to be on the cards due to factors like:

  • The unveiling of Dash roadmap for mass adoption, which includes the deployment of Dash 12.1, scaling solutions, and mining decentralization.
  • Increase in popularity of #FirstDashWallet campaign has resulted in a surge in users due to the many incentives.
  • The upcoming project that is being developed by BitInstant founder Charlie Shrem for creating prepaid debit cards that users can fund with Dash. Once successful, Dash can be converted into legal tender, unveiling limitless possibilities.
