If you trade more than 5,000 contracts per month please contact us for pricing.

If no agreement exists to the contrary, you will be charged the highest price category in the table. Contact Saxo Capital Markets to apply for another price category if applicable based on previous trading volumes.

Moves to different price categories take place at the discretion of Saxo Capital Markets and always take effect from the beginning of the following month without any adjustment in commissions already paid.

When trading Contract Options at Saxo Capital Markets, there are no minimum ticket fees. Each trade is subject to a flat-rate fee based on the applicable volume bracket.

Overnight positions in short Contract Options are subject to a carrying cost.
The carrying cost will be 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 in the relevant Interbank-rate + markup (150 bps).

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

Holding fees on long option positions (all maturities) will not be applied for the first 30 days – holding fees will only apply after 30 days of holding a position. The fee will be calculated daily based on the below schedule and charged end-of-month.
