At the end of each day (5pm New York time), 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 0.0082% on buy positions and minus 0.0082% on sell positions.
Overnight holding costs for CFD trades on cryptocurrencies are calculated in line with our existing instruments. Daily holding costs for Bitcoin/USD are charged at 0.0959% on long positions, and paid at 0.0274% on short positions. Overnight holding costs for most other cryptocurrencies are charged at 0.0753% on long positions, and paid at 0.0274% on short positions. Please note cryptocurrencies are only available for professional clients.
For share CFDs, holding costs are based on the underlying interbank rate for the currency of the relevant share (see table) plus 0.0082% on buy positions and minus 0.0082% 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.
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.
Holdings costs for share baskets, forex indices, commodity indices and crypto indices are calculated via a weighted sum of the constituents' holding cost rates, plus CMC's haircut on buy positions or minus CMC's haircut on sell positions.

A monthly inactivity charge of £10 (the amount depends on your account currency) will be deducted per dormant account where funds are available. An account is considered dormant if there are no open positions and there has been no other trading activity for a continuous period of one year.
The monthly inactivity charge of £10 (or its equivalent in another currency) will be deducted from a dormant account, usually within the first two (UK) working days of the month, until either:
Once the balance of a dormant account has reduced to zero, we will not deduct further monthly inactivity charges from the dormant account. A dormant account will not incur a negative balance as a result of the deduction of the monthly inactivity charge.
If you decide to reactivate your dormant account by trading again, the inactivity charge for up to three previous months (up to a maximum of £30) where this has already been deducted will be refunded to your account.
