DESCRIPTION

Spread

Spread is the difference between the Bid Price (Sell) and the Ask Price (Buy). All of our spreads are variable and are charged automatically once the position is open. Under normal trading conditions the minimum spread is applied while the spread might be widened under extreme trading conditions. Our spreads are set at our absolute discretion and any changes are effective immediately.

Please refer to our website for more information.

Overnight Financing Fee

A daily overnight Financing Fee charge will apply to all open positions that remain open every day at 21:00 UTC time.

Wednesday Exception Rule: The charge for positions being held over Wednesday and swapped to Thursday is different than other days and includes the charge over weekend.

Please note that on the CFDs market, when a position is held open overnight from Wednesday to Thursday, the overnight swap is tripled. This is because for a position opened on Wednesday, the value date is Friday. When a position is kept open overnight from Wednesday to Thursday, the value date will be moved forward 3 days, to Monday, skipping over Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, the overnight Financing Fee is tripled since the Client must be charged charges for 3 days instead of just one.

More information in regards to the Overnight Financing Fee charges can be found on our website: href="/en//swap-charges

Currency Conversion

Any cash, realized profit and losses, adjustments, fees and charges that are denominated in a currency other than the base currency of your account, will be converted to the base currency of your account and a currency conversion fee will be charged to your account.

= 63.16 USD

 

= 45.24 GBP
