CFD commission rates explained

When trading CFD shares on our platform, a commission will be charged to your account upon execution of any order. We've put together a few examples below to show you how commission is calculated on CFD shares. The commission rates for our share CFDs can be found in the table below.

Spanish share examples

The commission rate on a Spanish CFD share 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 incur a minimum commission charge of €9.00 based on the following calculation:

1000 (units) x 5.20 (price) = €5,200 x 0.10% = €5.20

The actual commission on this trade is less than the €9.00 minimum commission charge, so instead the minimum commission charge of €9.00 is applied.

US share example

The commission for a US share is 2 US cents per share, subject to a minimum commission charge of US$10.

So a 600 unit trade in Caterpillar Inc at a price of 80.95 would incur a commission of $12.00 based on the following calculation:

600 (units) x $0.02 (commission charge per unit) = $12.00

But a 300 unit trade in Caterpillar Inc at a price of 80.95 would incur a minimum commission charge of $10.00 based on the following calculation:

300 (units) x $0.02 (commission charge per unit) = $6.00

The actual commission on this trade is less than the $10.00 minimum commission charge on US share CFDs, so instead the minimum commission charge of $10.00 is applied.
