DMA costs

Commission

Our only charges are a small commission – the same as an OTC trade. 

Exchange fees

Depending on the exchange you wish to view or trade on, you may be liable to pay data fees. These fees are refunded if you’re a frequent trader.

Other fees

Under the terms of our customer agreement, we will also pass on to you any transaction costs, such as stock borrowing fees, which we incur as a result of your transaction.

DMA with IG

Our pricing technology is engineered to find the best available prices on both OTC (over-the-counter) and DMA. This means that DMA prices are not necessarily better than OTC, but direct access to the markets can give you greater visibility and flexibility as a trader.

There are many added complexities to the trading environment and there can be an increased risk. As we take a parallel position in the underlying market, DMA traders need to be aware that once an order has been executed we are unable to change or reverse the position.

Commission

Our only charges are a small commission – this differs from OTC trading, where we add a spread instead. 

The commission rates on your account vary based on the volume you traded in the preceding month.

If your account is not USD-denominated, the commission will be converted into your base currency (at current exchange rates) before being deducted.

Size (millions of USD) Commission (USD per million)
1500 + 10
< 1500 20
< 500 30
< 100 60
