Fees & Trading

Yes, it's free to open an account with Saxo.

Depending on the asset class, the cost of trading a CFD is primarily based on a combination of three factors: 

  1. The spread, which is the difference between the bid price and the ask price of the instrument. 
  2. The commission, which is the fee charged by the broker
  3. The financing cost of the additional liquidity provided by the broker when trading with margin

See our commissions and financing costs

Furthermore, minor and/or local fees can apply such as taxes, exchange fees and execution fees.

There is no minimum order size for CFD index trackers. 

We offer CFDs on thousands of instruments across indices, stocks & ETFs, commodities, forex, bonds and options. You can find a list of available CFD instruments - or try our instant demo for a full overview.

We profit when you profit, and we never take positions that go against our clients. We make money on single-stock CFDs from commissions and financing, and the commissions work exactly like on stocks. The financing cost is incurred when using margin for trading. When you’re trading on margin, where only a fraction of your capital is posted as collateral, you pay a small margin fee to the brokerage providing the additional liquidity.

For other asset classes, you can see the fee structures
