Trading Price & Charges
Spreads (fixed and variable)
We offer both fixed and variable spreads depending on the market you wish to trade. For a list of the spreads available on our most popular markets, see our Available Spreads section.
Fixed spreads don't change according to market conditions such as volatility or liquidity. Fixed spreads may either be offered for a defined period of the day, or throughout trading hours.
Variable spreads may fluctuate throughout the day according to different factors such as underlying liquidity or market volatility. With variable spreads, City Index will quote you the minimum spread it could be, plus an average spread for a defined historical period of time.
Margin is the amount of money you need in order to open a position on a market with us. You can find out more about margin requirments and how to calculate them in our Education Secion.
Overnight Financing Charges
Financing is a fee that you pay in order to hold a position open overnight. The daily financing fee will be applied to your account each day that you hold an open position (including weekend days). The financing rates are set at benchmark regional interest rate of +/- 2.5%. The financing rates we charge by territory are:
FX overnight financing charge
Each night you will pay a small financing charge on the exposure of the Forex trade, including the amount that has been effectively borrowed in order to trade the full position.
Please review the market information sheets in the Advantage Trader platforms for details on further financing charges on FX.
CFDs and Spread Bets are subject to corporate actions including dividend adjustments. We may make dividend adjustments if a dividend is scheduled to be paid to the holders of the underlying instrument. These adjustments are normally made on the ex-dividend date. Long positions receive adjustments net of tax, whereas short positions are charged the declared amount of gross tax, where applicable.
Borrowing cost for shorting CFDs
Borrowing costs are incurred when you short a shares CFD position, and reflect a charge incurred in the underlying market when the underlying asset is borrowed in order to sell and return at a later date. Very few markets will incur a borrowing charge, and to determine whether the market you wish to trade has borrowing costs or not, please check the relevant market information sheet.
