How it works

At Saxo, you earn interest based on your net free equity. Generally speaking, your net free equity is the same as the cash in your account, but if you use sub-accounts or trade derivatives, your calculated net free equity can be different. That means the calculation of your earned interest can differ too.

You can find an overview of the daily interest you have earned on the Account Page in the platform. Navigate to Historical Reports > Account Interest Details. Here you can see applied interest rates and amounts credited to your account for different periods.
If you have a negative cash balance, you will be charged negative interest based on the market rate, plus a mark-up. To read more about how the rate for a negative cash balance is calculated, click here.
