Financing

As Index Tracker CFDs at Saxo Bank are margined products, you finance the traded value through an overnight credit/debit charge. If you open and close a CFD position within the same trading day, you are not subject to overnight financing. When you hold an Index Tracker CFD position overnight, your CFD position will consequently be subject to the following credit or debit:

  • Holding Long CFD Stock Index Tracker positions after 17:00 EST (New York time) incurs a financing charge which is calculated as follows:
    • Index Value * Number of CFDs * (relevant Inter-Bank Offered Rate + 2.50%) * (Actual Number of Days/360 or Actual Number of Days/365)
  • Holding Short positions after 17:00 EST (New York time) creates a financing credit which is calculated as follows:
    • Index Value * Number of CFDs * (relevant Inter-Bank Bid Rate – 3.00%) * (Actual Number of Days/360 or Actual Number of Days/365)

Please note the following:
a) A floor apply to the relevant Inter-Bank Bid/Offer Rate, i.e. if the Inter-Bank Rate is negative it will be excluded from the financing calculation.
b) If the calculated financing rate on a short position (Inter-Bank Bid Rate – mark-down) is negative, the financing credit will become a financing charge.

A borrowing cost may be applied to short Single Stock CFD positions held overnight. This borrowing cost is dependent on the liquidity of the underlying Stocks and may be zero (0) for high liquidity Stocks. The specific borrowing rate for a Stock can be seen as the 'Borrowing Rate' under 'Account' > 'Trading Conditions' > 'CFD Stock/Index Instrument List' in the trading platforms.

When selling a CFD, the borrowing cost for holding the position overnight is shown in the CFD Trade module in the 'Estimated borrowing cost per day' field. The borrowing rate will be fixed when the position is opened and will be charged on a monthly basis. Please be aware, that for certain corporate action events, the borrowing rate on the short position may be reset to the current rate in the market, upon the execution of the corporate action.

If you open and close a CFD position within the same trading day, you are not subject to borrowing costs.

Overnight positions in Expiring CFDs are subject to a carrying cost. The carrying cost is calculated on the basis of the daily margin requirement and applied when a position is held overnight. The funding rate used for calculating the carrying cost is based on the relevant Interbank-rate + markup (150 bps).

Carrying Cost = Margin requirement * Holding time * (Relevant Interbank rate + Markup) / (365 or 360 days)
