Spreads

We never aim to profit from our clients' losses. Our income comes predominantly from the spread, which is built into the buy and sell prices of an instrument.

Other costs & considerations

There are some other potential costs you may incur, depending on what and how you trade. These include rollover costs, guaranteed stop-loss orders, market data fees and dormancy fees.

Rollover costs

You can roll forward positions over to keep a trade open beyond its expiry date. When you roll a forward position to the next contract, your profit or loss is realised and you enter the new trade at the mid-price, saving 50% on the spread cost.

Guaranteed stop-loss orders

You can add a guaranteed stop-loss order (GSLO) to your trade for a premium, which guarantees to close you out at your specified level, regardless of market volatility or gapping. If the GSLO is not triggered, we'll refund 100% of the original GSLO charge. The charge, or 'premium', is calculated by multiplying the premium rate by the bet size.

Market data fees

If you want to trade or view our price data for certain share CFD instruments, you will need to activate the relevant market data subscription. Monthly subscription charges may apply depending on your market data classification and the type of account you hold.

Account inactivity fee

There's a monthly charge of £10 (the amount depends on your account currency) on dormant accounts, but no deduction is made if there are no funds in the account. An account is considered dormant if there has been no trading activity for a continuous period of one year.
