EUR, GBP, USD and More: FX Trading Is Going Live on Kraken

It’s now even easier for active traders and institutions to avoid friction when executing orders on Kraken with the launch of nine new FX pairs, a combined offering that will allow clients to be more agile and sophisticated when trading across our markets.

The service will be available at approximately 14:30 UTC on March 12, at which time all clients (except those residing in the U.S.) will gain the ability to directly trade between CAD, CHF, EUR, GBP, JPY and USD directly on the Kraken platform. 

This service is complete with industry-low order minimums, giving clients maximum precision and control over their strategies. 

Trading Pairs

Our FX service will launch with nine FX currency pairs (additional pairs may be added in the future). Clients will be required to trade at least 10 units of base currency in each transaction, a figure that’s substantially lower than many leading FX shops.  

The display precision for the prices will be 5 decimal points, with the exception of JPY-based pairs (3 decimal points).
