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

Updated 02 May, 2014

Overnight positions in short Stock Options 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)

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.
