The order routing fee. To have direct market access, high speed order routing and tick-by-tick market data, traders can use CQG technology. The broker must debit the routing fee from your account and pass it on to the technology provider. The routing fee is only € 0,50 per future per order.
- The order commission. Futures are traded on an exchange. You need a broker and an exchange member to execute, clear and settle your order. WH SelfInvest charges € 2,20 per future per order for these services. Volume discounts are available.
- The exchange fee. The exchange is your counter-party on every trade. They charge a small fee for processing an order. This is called the exchange fee. The broker must debit the exchange fee from your account and pass it on to the exchange. Exchange fees vary. For example, the mini-DAX future exchange fee is € 0,25 and the mini-DOW future exchange fee is $ 1,18.
Example trading commission mini-DAX. The total of the fees is € 2,95. If you trade 1 mini-DAX future, you trade € 60.000 (if the DAX is at 12.000). A € 2,95 fee on € 60.000 is only 0,005% all inclusive.
The commission is quickly recovered. When the DAX goes up 1 point, your profit is € 5. More than the cost of the order.
Example trading commission mini-DOW. The total of the fees is $ 3,89. If you trade 1 mini-DOW, you trade $ 125.000 (if the DOW is at 25.000). A $ 3,89 fee on $ 125.000 is only 0,003% all inclusive.
The commission is quickly recovered. When the DOW goes up 1 point, your profit is $ 5. More than the cost of the order.
