Financing

A financing cost or benefit is incurred for any CFD contracts held open each day. The finance rate is applied to the full notional value (or face value) of your position. If you hold a long ‘buy’ position you will be charged interest, if you hold a short ‘sell’ position you may receive interest from FP Markets.

 

Interest Rates on CFD Positions

Based on the notional or face value of open CFD contracts held open each day, interest is debited from and/or credited to your CFD account on a daily basis on the next trading day.

The interest rate charges for open CFD contracts are set out below. Interest is calculated by multiplying the number of CFDs by the closing price, multiplied by the applicable interest rate, divided by 365 days.

 

Short Borrow Fees

Short Positions – Stock borrow fee’s may apply starting from 0.5% pa.

 

Long and Short CFD Position Interest Rate

  • Long Positions – FP Markets relevant currency base rate plus 2% – 4.5%.
  • Short Positions – FP Markets relevant currency base rate minus 2% – 4.5%.

No interest is paid or received on positions that are not held overnight.

 

Dividends and CFDs

If you hold a long CFD contract open leading into the ex-dividend date, you will be credited with an amount equal to the gross unfranked dividend on the underlying shares typically on the ex-dividend date (CFDs do not confer rights to any dividend imputation credits).

If you hold a short CFD position leading into the ex-dividend date, your account will be debited an amount equal to the gross unfranked dividend on the underlying shares typically on the ex-dividend date.
