Commission is only applicable for share trading on a CFD account. It's taken out of the cash balance on your account at the open and the close of a position. Learn more about our commission charges.
If you're currently long (with a buy position), make sure you're looking at a sell chart (you can change the chart type at the bottom of the chart itself). If you're short (with a sell position), make sure you're looking at a buy chart. If you still feel the stop loss should have been executed, please contact our Client Management team.
If you remove a guaranteed stop-loss order (GSLO) from an open position, convert it to a regular or trailing stop-loss order, or close out the position yourself, we will credit your account with the GSLO premium charge. An additional GSLO premium is required to modify an existing GSLO.
Please make sure you have taken into account any additional costs, such as overnight holding costs, the premium for guaranteed stop-loss orders, or commissions on share CFD trades.

The premium charged for GSLOs will vary by instrument and depend on your trade size. The estimated cost will be displayed on order tickets before you agree to apply a guaranteed stop-loss order to a position, and will automatically be deducted from your cash balance once you have confirmed the GSLO. The premium is refunded if the GSLO is not triggered. Learn how we calculate our GSLO premiums

The first step is to establish the holding rate for the instrument you are trading. Holding rates can be found within the trading platform by selecting ‘Library’ from the main menu (which displays the full list of products), then select the arrow icon next to the specific product which will bring up a sub-menu.

Spread betting prices include the CMC Markets spread. It is built into the price you see on the platform. Share CFDs do not have this spread built in and we therefore incur a fee for displaying the price feed. Read more information on our market data feeds on share CFDs.
If you want to trade a share CFD or view the price data for that share, you will need to activate the market data subscription for the applicable country or group of countries that the share product is based in. Depending on the subscription, there may be a monthly fee for the market data subscription and the monthly fee will differ, depending on which country and/or countries the share CFDs relate to. The monthly fee, if applicable, will be debited from your account at the time you activate a market data feed. Please note that the market data fee for the full calendar month will be charged, irrespective of whether you activate or deactivate the market data subscription part way through the calendar month.
In addition to the market data fee, local taxes and duties may also be charged. The market data fees will be converted into your account currency at our prevailing currency conversion rate before being debited from your account.
It's your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient funds in your account to pay any market data fee in full.
