Fees & Trading

Yes, it's free and there are no charges for opening an account with Saxo. Different deposit levels decide which tier your account will initially be in.

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.

Markets traded on spreads like index CFDs do not have minimum order sizes. Stock & ETF CFDs have minimum commission amounts, and trade at their normal commissions over these.

We offer CFDs on thousands of instruments covering indices, stocks & ETFs, commodities, forex, bonds and options. You can find a list of available CFD instruments on this page - or try searching on the platform now using our instant demo.

You can trade CFDs exactly like you'd trade stocks, but with more flexibility. You can buy or sell, use stop-loss orders to manage risk, and apply more complex strategies directly from the Trade Ticket in our platform.

Our platform offers you all the tools and information you need to find trade inspiration: data, news and analysis by our SaxoStrats team, charts, Trade Signals by Autochartist and much more - and it's all free of charge.

As part of our Saxo Rewards loyalty programme, we offer price upgrades primarily based on your trading activity and deposits. You can see the price tiers and terms and conditions for Platinum and VIP clients when you click on a specific asset class.

When opening an account with Saxo, you can trade all our asset classes on industry-leading prices, through award-winning platforms and with expert state-of-the-art digital service solutions.

We believe in win-win relationships, so it's in our best interests for you to have favourable outcomes. We make money on CFDs from commissions or spreads, and financing. The commissions work exactly like on stocks. Financing costs are incurred when margin is used to trade leveraged products - only a fraction of your capital is posted as collateral, so you pay a small margin fee to the brokerage providing the additional liquidity.
