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

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.

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.
