For spread bets, CFDs and share dealing, there are some extra services that we charge for.
|Direct Market Access (DMA)||There’s no charge for using DMA to trade CFDs on forex* and shares, or buy and sell shares via our share dealing service, though in order to access live DMA prices for some shares you’ll need to pay a monthly exchange fee.|
|Live price data feeds||Obtaining live share prices from an exchange, whether that's to trade share CFDs or buy and sell shares via a share dealing account incurs a monthly fee.|
|ProRealTime Charts||Subscribing to real-time charts costs £30 per month. This is refunded if you place four or more trade a month. We reserve the right to charge you for the service if your qualifying trades are of an extremely low value.|
|Inactivity fee||We charge a £12 fee on the first of every month, if no dealing activity has occurred for two years or more.|
|Account documentation fee||We charge a $50 fee on accounts which have not supplied a mandatory W-8 or W-9 form prior to the dividend ex-date of a qualifying trade on a US-incorporated stock. We do not apply this fee to accounts with up-to-date documentation or accounts which have not entered into qualifying trades. We will notify you if you have entered into a qualifying trade and need to complete a form.|
