Capital.com provides most of its brokerage services for free. We keep our fee policy transparent. That means if we need to charge you, we will make sure these fees are clear in the beginning. Our fees are mainly based on spread charges, which are competitive across the market.
The difference between the buy and sell price of an asset is called a spread. Spreads are the key source of income for brokers, including Capital.com. We provide you with the most competitive spreads on the market, so that you can invest your capital in the best way possible.
Once the market you’ve invested in has moved in your favour and covered the amount of the spread size, you’ve broken even. From this moment on, you can start to make profit.
For example, if the ask price for a stock is £12 and the bid price is £10.50, then the bid-ask spread equals £1.50.
An overnight fee is an interest that a broker charges for holding your position overnight.
At Capital.com, you have to pay an overnight fee only for the leverage provided, not for the entire value of the position. This is significantly less in comparison with many competitors, who charge this fee for the whole position.
For example you want to open a position on Bitcoin, which is traded with a leverage of 2:1. You deposit $3,000 to open a leveraged position of $6,000. The overnight fee will only be charged for the $3,000 that was provided as a leverage. The overnight fee will be $3,000 x 0.05% = $1.50.
Inactive Accounts will be subject to a monthly charge of 10 USD (or the equivalent of the same in one of the Base Currencies) after 1 year of inactivity, relating to the maintenance/administration of such Inactive Accounts.
