FX Spread Calculation

 

The FX  Trading Conditions display the Standard Bid-Ask Spread (Pips) for FX Instruments unless otherwise stated. Standard Spreads are as stated under Normal Market Conditions. Spreads can widen depending on market conditions up to a maximum of Standard Spread x3 (Triple).

We, at CM Trading, are proud of our state of the art order execution, competitive spreads, and most importantly our amazing service and support. We strive to make our client's experience an enjoyable one and value the relationship of each of our account holders and business partners.

*Secondary Currency is the Second Currency quoted in an FX pair (CUR1/CUR2 USD/JPY, EUR/USD, etc.)

Example

For a 1,000 EUR/USD Trade, with a Spread of 3 pips (0.0003), the calculation is as follows:

0.0003 X 1,000 = $0.30*

CM Trading is compensated through the Bid-Ask spread, except when otherwise stated.

CM Trading does not charge commissions on any trade.

FX Margin/Leverage Calculation

 

All Instruments are traded on Margin allowing you to Leverage your positions. The FX Trading Conditions display both Margin & Leverage Amounts; Margin is displayed as a Percentage (%) while Leverage is displayed as a Ratio.

Percentage Margin Formula: Trade Size x Margin (%) = Margin Required in Primary Currency*

Leverage Margin Formula: Trade Size / Leverage = Margin Required in Primary Currency*

*Primary Currency is the First Currency quoted in an FX pair (CUR1/CUR2: USD/JPY, EUR/USD, etc.)

Example

For a 1,000 EUR/USD Trade, with a Margin Requirement of 0.50% or Leverage of 200:1, the calculation are as follows:

Percentage Margin Requirement: 1,000 x 0.005 = €5.00

Leverage Margin Requirement: 1,000 / 200 = €5.00.

FX Buy/Sell Overnight Interest Calculation

 

The FX  Trading Conditions display the Over-Night (O/N) Interest Rates Charged/Paid on a daily basis for holding a position open past our End of Day time. These rates are displayed in the “Overnight Interest – Buy” and “Overnight Interest – Sell” columns. End of Day is 22:00 GMT except during Daylight Savings when it changes to 21:00 GMT.

You can use the following formula to calculate your Daily Overnight Interest amount:

Swap calculation = No Of nights * Swap (buy or sell) *No of Lots*Point value

Example

For a 1 lot EURUSD trade, with a Daily Swap Buy Rate of -14.56 and subject to charge for 1 day the calculation is as follows :

SWAP = 1x-14.56x1x1= -14.56 USD

Notes:

• Point value = Contract size *No of Decimals in the Pair.


For EURUSD the price is denominated in 5 decimals.
Point value = 100000(contract size) * 0.00001(number of decimals) so the point value for EURUSD is 1
For USDJPY the price is denominated in 3 decimals.
Point value =100000(contract size) * 0.001(number of decimals) so the point value for USDJPY is 100

•• Overnight Interest Charged/Paid will be calculated in the Reference Currency. Reference Currency is the Second Currency quoted in a FX pair (Base /Reference: USD/JPY, EUR/USD, etc.)
