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

Positions held overnight in short Stock Options will be 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. It is charged at the end of each month.
The funding rate used for calculating the carrying cost is based on the relevant Interbank-rate + markup (150 bps).

Carrying Cost = Margin requirement * Days held * (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.
