  • Competitive and transparent pricing from as low as 0.1 pips, plus commission
  • Increasing commission discounts for larger cumulative trading volume
  • Consistency in spread across notional trade sizes
  • No minimum monthly commission fee
  • Designed for pricing simplicity

The FX Volume-based Discount Plan serves low-volume traders equally as well as it does high-volume traders, taking into account that trading volumes can fluctuate. We charge a standard commission rate of 50 USD per 1 million USD traded, with the benefit of increasing discounts for larger cumulative trading volume, i.e. the more volume traded, the cheaper trading costs (commission) become.

For Example:

  • If you trade over 25 million USD, you will receive a 20% (10 USD) discount on commission paid on volume traded up to 100 million USD.
  • If you trade over 100 million USD, you will receive a 40% (20 USD) discount on commission paid on volume traded up to 250 million USD.
  • If you trade over 250 million USD, you will receive a 50% (25 USD) discount on commission paid on volume traded up to 500 million USD.
  • If you trade over 500 million USD, you will receive a 60% (30 USD) discount on commission paid on volume traded up to 1,000 million USD.
  • If you trade over 1,000 million USD, you will receive a 66% (33 USD) discount on commission paid on volume traded in excess of 1,000 million USD
