What are the costs that I need to be aware of when trading with CMC Markets?
The list of costs and charges below is not exhaustive. Please see our CFD holdings costs page for a more comprehensive explanation of our GSLO premiums, margins, etc.
Overnight holding costs: at the end of each trading day at 5pm (New York time), any cash positions held in your account may be subject to a charge called a 'holding cost'. The holding cost can be positive or negative depending on the direction of your position. Historical holding rates, expressed as an annual percentage rate, are visible on our platform within the overview section of each product. This annual percentage is applied to the notional value of your trade when it was opened, and divided by 365 for the one night cost. Learn how we calculate CFD holdings costs.
Commission charges: when trading CFD shares on our platform, a commission will be charged to your account upon execution of any order. See our commission rates.
Market data feeds: in order to view share prices on our platform, you will need to activate the relevant market data feed for the region in which the products you wish to see are traded.
Monthly subscription charges may apply depending on your market data classification and the type of account you hold, details of the charges can be found on the platform in the ‘market data’ section in ‘user preferences’.
