Please note: from Monday 1 November 2021, we're changing the interbank lending rate which is used to calculate our overnight holding costs on all existing and new Positions on 'cash' indices, shares and share baskets. We're making this change because the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) benchmark interest rate will cease to exist by the end of 2021.
LIBOR will be replaced by a new interbank rate for the following currencies: GBP, USD, EUR, CHF, JPY and SGD. From Monday night on 1 November, overnight holding costs will be charged based on the new benchmark rate, plus or minus our fee depending on whether you hold a buy or sell position in an index, share or share basket. Based on the new benchmark rates compared with Libor, we don't expect a material change in holding costs.
At the end of each trading day (5pm New York time), your open CFD trading positions may be subject to a charge called a holding cost. The holding cost can be positive or negative depending on whether you are long or short. Forward contracts on indices, forex, commodities and treasuries are not subject to holding costs.
Holding costs for indices are based on the underlying interbank rate of the index (see table) plus 2.5% on buy positions and minus 2.5% on sell positions.
For share CFDs, holding costs are based on the underlying interbank rate for the currency of the relevant share (see table) plus 2.5% on buy positions and minus 2.5% on sell positions.
FX holding costs are based on the tom-next (tomorrow to next day) rate in the underlying market for the currency pair and are expressed as an annual percentage.
Holding rates for cash commodities and treasuries are based on the inferred holding costs built into the underlying futures contracts, from which the prices of our cash commodity and treasury products are derived.
Please note this information has been provided for reference, and the rates may not match exactly if recalculated. If you have any questions, please contact our client services team.
To view the prices for Australian and Hong Kong share CFDs on the platform, you will need to activate the relevant market data subscription. There is a monthly fee, which is refunded if you execute two or more trades under the same subscription during the subscription period, which usually runs from the first day of the month until the first day of the following month.
Please note that, where fees apply, local taxes and duties may also be charged. The taxes will include 13% HST, on the basis that you are a resident in Canada. Non-residents will be charged tax based on their country of residence.

A guaranteed stop-loss order (GSLO) works in the same way as a stop-loss order, except that it guarantees to close you out of a trade at the price specified regardless of market volatility or gapping, for a premium. If the GSLO is not triggered then we'll refund 100% of the original premium.
