Commissions on equities from just 0.05% per trade
When investing or trading you can usually expect a commission to be added to each trade you make. This can vary depending on the type of market you are speculating on, the size of the investment and the broker you use.
The higher the trade commissions, the less profit you will make from each trade. In fact, many brokers will have a minimum charge for trades, meaning you could be getting overcharged for smaller positions.
At Spread Co we keep our commissions low and have no minimum trade fee. Therefore, you can trade any market you like without the fear of disproportionate fees and charges. What’s more, we build our spreads and commissions into the buy and sell price; so what you see is what you get and no unexpected fees.
See the example below on how to calculate trade commissions:
If you wanted to trade Barclays (a FTSE 100 equity), the charge per trade would be 0.05%
The commission charge is supplementary to the underlying spread. For example:
The market price for Barclays is:
Our commission would be added to the spread; so 0.05% deducted from the bid:
and the 0.05% added to the offer:
So the trading bid-offer price would be:
