Trading commissions and fees

Find out what trading with us will cost you.

Before you make that first trade, you’ll want to know how much will it cost you.

We’re proud to offer great pricing and we’re honest about the fees we charge. Have a read through the below and let us know if anything isn’t clear.

Our spreads, explained in one simple video.

Here’s exactly how we charge for our spreads, depending on your account type and the instrument you’re trading.

How our commissions work

Just as a refresher, commissions are the charges you’ll pay for us to facilitate your trades as your broker. We keep these as low as possible.

On Advantage MT5 accounts, commission is fixed at $4 per lot and doesn't change based on volume and equity, nor the market you’re trading. So, you’ll pay $2 when you open a position and $2 when you close it, per every 1 lot you trade.

On our Advantage MT4 account, however, the commission terms are flexible. The higher your equity and the larger your trading volume, the lower the commissions you pay. This is based on a floating structure - so the more your funds and trading volume increase, the less you’ll pay.

The formula we use to calculate commission is:

(Volume * Contract Size * Open Price) / 1,000,000 * Commission * 2.

Trading fees with stocks

US stock trading is commission-free and includes free access to real time price data to help you keep an eye on the latest movements.

Trading stocks on the HKEX exchange in Hong Kong does come with a fee structure based on % per notional per unit. The breakdown of this fee will be published on the website very soon.
