Crypto & forex brokers in Saint Kitts and Nevis are not regulated or otherwise licensed by the government, but are instead simply registered as legal businesses there. Because of this, brokers in Saint Kitts and Nevis are usually free to offer whatever trading conditions they want, including high trading leverage of up to 1:500 on the most liquid trading pairs.
In addition to offering forex and CFDs on popular stocks and commodities, some of the brokers in Saint Kitts and Nevis also offer cryptocurrency CFDs like BTC/USD, BTC/EUR, ETH/USD, and ETH/EUR. A crypto CFD gives traders far more buying power in the market thanks to high leverage, as opposed to just buying and holding cryptocurrencies from a traditional crypto exchange. It also makes it easy to short crypto assets, and thus take advantage of the sharp sell-offs that these assets experience from time to time.
