Our financing fees

We apply a holding/duration charge or credit for positions kept open over time. These are calculated in relation to positions maintained on a continuous basis rather than a daily basis. View fees.

Inactivity fees

An inactivity fee is a monthly charge that is levied on your account if there has been no trading activity for a period of 12 months. Please note, inactivity fees will not be charged when there is an open position.

When inactivity fees are due, they are levied first on the client’s sub-account with the smallest balance and continue to be debited from sub-accounts until a maximum of SGD10 per client has been debited each month. The amount claimed is converted to each sub-account’s home currency.

Inactivity fees will be applied to inactive accounts on the third last weekday of each month.

Levying of inactivity fees will not result in a negative balance on any of your accounts.

Your account will be charged until one of the following conditions are met:

  • You close your account
  • You resume trading on your account
  • The balance on your account is reduced to zero.

If you have resumed trading after inactivity fees have been levied, you can request a rebate of up to 3 months’ worth of the inactivity fees based on how many months you have been charged. If you would like to deposit funds into your account and continue to trade, please refer to our 'How to fund your account' FAQ.

Currency conversion fees

When you trade an instrument in a currency that is different from your account currency, the realised profit or loss, fees and/or commissions related to trading instruments which have a different quote currency to your account currency will now incur a conversion charge. This charge is based on the prevailing mid-price of the applicable FX spot rate for the conversion, plus an additional spread of 0.5%.

See an example of how currency conversion is calculated in our FAQs section below.

What are currency conversion fees?

Trading products in a different currency from your account's home currency will incur a currency conversion charge. OANDA charges a 0.5 % mark-up/mark-down on the midpoint price of the applicable currency at the time of conversion.

add

When do currency conversion charges apply?

Home currency conversion charges are applicable only when a trade/transaction is conducted in a different currency to the account’s home currency, and therefore needs to be converted to that home currency. It is applied to any realised profits and losses, adjustments, fees and charges that are denominated in a currency other than the account’s home currency and as such, needs to be converted to the account’s home currency.

How is currency conversion calculated?

Let’s say you have an account denominated in GBP. Below is the methodology of how OANDA clients’ transactions are converted to the account’s home currency:

Formula:

New bid = midpoint price x (1 - x%)

New ask = midpoint price x (1 + x%)

Where x% = 0.50%

Midpoint price = (ask + bid)/2

Examples

A client has an account denominated in GBP. You opened a long position on 1 unit of US Wall St 30 @ 29,000 and closed your trade at 29,100, resulting in a profit of USD100.

Let’s assume the USD/GBP exchange rate is:

Bid: 0.77000

Ask: 0.77005

OANDA’s methodology is to charge a mark-up/mark-down of 0.5% on the midpoint price for the currency conversion to a client’s account’s home currency:

Midpoint price = (0.77000 + 0.77005)/2 = 0.770025

Fee adjusted exchange rate to convert USD to GBP = 0.770025 x (1 - 0.5%) = 0.766174875

So, the USD100 profit on the trade will result in a credit to a client’s account when it is denominated in GBP of: 0.766174875 X 100 = 76.61 GBP.
