CFDs are a leveraged product and can result in losses that exceed deposits. Trading CFDs may not be suitable for everyone, so please ensure you fully understand the risks and take care to manage your exposure.

Commission definition

Commission is the charge levied by an investment broker for making trades on a trader’s behalf.

Levels of commission vary between different brokers, depending on the asset being traded and the type of service being offered. Execution-only brokers tend to have lower commissions, as they are not deciding trades on their client’s behalf or offering advice.

Commission is not the only type of charge traders will encounter. CFDs on shares will incur commission, but CFD trades on other markets will have a spread that wraps around the market price of an instrument.
