CFD commission rates explained

When trading share CFDs on our platform, a commission is charged to your account when you execute an order.

View our examples to learn how we calculate commission on shares CFDs. You can also see our commission rates by country in the table below.

US share examples

The commission rate on a US share CFD is calculated as 1 US cent per share, subject to a minimum commission charge of US$8.00

An 800 unit trade in Caterpillar Inc at a price of 80.95 would incur a commission of $8.00 based on the following calculation:

800 (units) x $0.01 (price) = USD $8

A 500 unit trade in Caterpillar Inc at a price of 80.95 would also incur a minimum commission charge of US$8.00 as US shares are subject to a minimum commission charge of US $8.00:

500 (units) x  $0.01 (price) = USD $5

As the commission for this trade is less than the minimum commission charge, the commission for this transaction will be US $8.00.

Spanish Share examples

The commission rate on a Spanish share CFD is 0.10% (10/100ths of one percent), subject to a minimum commission charge of €9.00.

A 2500 unit trade in Banco Santander at a price of 5.20 would incur a commission of €13.00 based on the following calculation:

2500 (units) x 5.20 (price) = €13,000 x 0.10% = €13.00

But a 1000 unit trade in Banco Santander at a price of 5.20 would also incur a minimum commission charge of €9.00 based on the minimum commission charge:

1000 (units) x 5.20 (price) = €5,200 x 0.10% = €5.20

Since the actual commission on this trade is less than our €9.00 minimum commission charge, we have instead applied the minimum commission charge of €9.00.
