Spread: As in all markets, when trading CFDs you must pay the spread, which is the difference between the buy and sell price. You enter a buy trade using the buy price quoted and exit using the sell price. As one of the leading CFD providers globally, we understand that the narrower the spread, the less you need the price to move in your favour before you start making a profit or loss. Our spreads are therefore always competitive so you can maximise your ability to net a potential profit.
Holding costs: At the end of each trading day (5pm New York time), any positions open in your account may be subject to a charge called a 'holding cost'. The holding cost can be positive or negative depending on the direction of your position and the applicable holding rate.
Market data fees: To trade or view our price data for share CFDs you must activate the relevant market data subscription for which a fee will be charged. View our CFD market data fees.
Commissions (only applicable for shares): You must also pay a separate commission charge when you trade share CFDs. Commissions on AUS-based shares on the CMC Markets CFD trading platform start from 0.09% of the full exposure of the position, and there is a minimum commission charge of $7.
