Commissions

Share CFDs use a Volume-Tiered pricing structure in which all exchange and regulatory fees are included. Commissions apply to all order types.

Risk Warning

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

63.5% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with IBKR (UK).

You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

United States Share CFDs
Volume (per Month) 1 IBKR Commission per Share (USD) Minimum per Order (USD)
<= 300,000 0.0050 1.00
300,001 - 3,000,000 0.0045 1.00

If you execute 500,000 US Share CFDs in a month, your IBKR Commission would be USD 2,400:

300,000 CFDs at USD 0.0050 = USD 1,500

200,000 CFDs at USD 0.0045 = USD 900


Notes:

  1. Volume tiers are applied based on monthly cumulative trade volume summed across US Share CFDs at the time of the trade. European Share CFD trades will not count towards the monthly volume (and vice versa). The above commissions include all fees and are applied on a marginal basis for a given calendar month.

  • All exchange and regulatory fees included.
  • VAT, also referred to as consumption tax, goods and services tax, where applicable, will be separately applied for eligible services.
  • Modified orders will be treated as the cancellation and replacement of an existing order with a new order. On certain exchanges, this may have the effect of subjecting modified orders to commission minimums as if they were new orders. For example, if an order for 200 contracts is submitted and 100 contracts execute, then you modify the order and another 100 contracts execute, a commission minimum would be applied to both 100 contract orders. Orders that persist overnight will be considered a new order for the purposes of determining order minimums.

Notes:

  1. The CFD tiers are based on the Monthly Trade Value as expressed in EUR. When calculating the Monthly Trade Value in EUR, IBKR converts any non-EUR denominated CFD trade to its EUR-equivalent using the most recent exchange rate. In this way, stock trades denominated in non-EUR currencies will be counted towards the monthly value for commission breaks.
  2. The minimum fees are additive. For example, an order resulting in a single execution carries a minimum fee of CZK 70. An order executed in two tranches carries a minimum fee of CZK 130.

  • Commissions apply to all order types. In addition a surcharge is applied to IBKR Algo orders (VWAP, DarkIce, etc.) for CFDs on European shares as follows:
    • GBP denominated 0.015%
    • EUR denominated 0.01%
    • CHF denominated 0.025%
    • EUR (Finnish only) denominated 0.025%
    • SEK and DKK denominated 0.10%
  • All exchange and regulatory fees included.
  • VAT, also referred to as consumption tax, goods and services tax, where applicable, will be separately applied for eligible services.
  • Modified orders will be treated as the cancellation and replacement of an existing order with a new order. On certain exchanges, this may have the effect of subjecting modified orders to commission minimums as if they were new orders. For example, if an order for 200 contracts is submitted and 100 contracts execute, then you modify the order and another 100 contracts execute, a commission minimum would be applied to both 100 contract orders. Orders that persist overnight will be considered a new order for the purposes of determining order minimums.
