We believe each Saxo client deserves the freedom to choose the pricing structure that they feel is best for their needs. Importantly, we are not forcing our clients to pay commission. We are simply giving clients an additional choice to select whether they prefer to trade on tighter, variable spreads with a post-trade commission FX Volume Price Plan OR to trade on all-inclusive spreads, which are typically a bit wider, but generally more consistent not fixed, but more frequently the same level.
You choose the pricing model that best suits your expected monthly volumes. You will be charged the respective USD per USD million traded commission fee that is calculated and transparent on each trade. The commission fee is based on the USD equivalent notional amount of each trade, shown in the trade ticket and the trade confirmation in the 2nd variable currency and converted to the account currency equivalent using the prevailing market rates at the time of the trade.
For accounts denominated in another currency other than USD Saxo Bank Saxo will use the closing rate of the last business day of the month for purposes of determining if the minimum commission is applicable to your account. You choose which commission rate level you want to pay USD60, USD30 or USD20 per USD million traded and what minimum monthly commission fee level you are willing to commit to in order to obtain the rate that you feel is most appropriate.
The 3 different levels are denoted above. This commission is charged in your account currency. Assume spot rate of 1. The standard conversion fee is applied when commissions are converted into the account currency.
We use the end of day rate on the last trading day of the month to calculate your equivalent USD commissions. The lowest commission rates are not necessarily appropriate for all clients. The commission-based pricing structure allows you to pay lower per-unit commission rates, but there are also minimum monthly commission amounts payable. What happens if I want to change pricing terms mid-month? You can request to change commission rate and associated minimum monthly commission fee commitment at any point in time.
Minimum commissions will be calculated on a pro-rata basis of the proportionate days that each respective minimum was in effect. This will determine whether or not the minimum commitment has been met through the course of normal trade activity or if there is a shortfall to be charged at month-end.
Minimum commissions for clients opening an account mid-month will be calculated on a pro-rata basis. The spreads are the same no matter which commission level you choose.
