Frequently asked questions

You can apply through our standard account opening process. Once your account has been approved and you have signed an additional agreement (the MT4 agreement), our Electronic Trading Services Client team will arrange the setup of your MT4 account.

You can then download the MT4 terminal and sign in with the MT4 login details we send you. You will have access to both the mobile and desktop versions. Once you have funded your Saxo account, it will take between two to three days to get full access to MT4.

Our Sales team will take you through the Saxo account opening process. Once you have signed the additional MT4 agreement, the Electronic Trading Client Services team will take over the MT4 setup. They will discuss which liquidity solution best matches your needs and facilitate your access to MT4.

You can fund your account through one of our platforms (SaxoTraderGo or SaxoTraderPRO) and it will automatically be reflected on MT4.

Currently, we support trading forex pairs across majors, minors and exotics on MT4. A wider offering of CFD trading on indices and commodities will be available soon.

The minimum brokerage to qualify for MT4 trading is £1,000 per month. This counts against commissions paid. The minimum funding is $20,000 (£15,000 or €18,000).

Commissions start from a minimum of $20 per million on DMA or a minimum of $12 per million via our direct liquidity.

Real-time netting makes your position financing more efficient. Because Saxo automatically nets equal, opposite positions, you don’t pay for both long and short sides of a trade, minimising rollover charges compared to standard MT4 financing.

Continuous netting in real time ensures that your underlying account and MT4 account remain in sync when it comes to financing, which can be an issue with other providers.

We already partner with several different VPS providers in London for clients to reduce latency. We can connect you to a provider so you can set up your own VPS.
