& Charges

At FP Markets, our value does not stop at low commissions, fast execution and outstanding customer service. Our Iress platform uses a Direct Market Access (DMA) pricing model for CFD Equities and Futures. DMA is an execution model in which the client receives a genuine exchange price feed from the underlying market in which they are trading. Not only does the DMA model result in an order flowing onto the underlying market, it also provides access to leverage, short selling and competitive commissions. DMA pricing is available exclusively through our IRESS trading platform on exchange traded products.

Financing
with FP Markets

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.

Borrow
Trading Fees

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

Interest Rates on Long
and Short CFD Positions
