Calculation Formula

A commission is charged per 1.0 lots of transaction`s value on Admiral.Prime accounts. This is a commission for a single side trade. Commission for a round turn trade (opening and closing) is doubled and is fully charged at the opening of the order. The formula below shows how exactly the commission is calculated:

Commission (in the deposit currency) = Contract size * Commission rate in account`s deposit currency * 2

Where:

Contract size = Volume traded in lots

For Forex currency pairs:

1 lot = 100,000 base currency units. Base currency means the currency quoted first in a currency pair, e.g. 1 lot of AUDUSD = 100,000 AUD.

For spot metals:

1 lot = 5000 troy oz. spot silver (XAGUSD);

1 lot = 100 troy oz. spot gold (XAUUSD).

Commission rate in account`s deposit currency - a commission specified by Admiral Markets for account`s deposit currency.

To make the calculations more clear let`s consider several exact examples.


Example 1

Initial values


  • Deposit currency of your account: AUD
  • AUD commission rate: 4.0
  • Trading instrument: AUD/USD
  • Volume traded: 1 lot

Calculations


  • Commission (in account`s deposit currency) = Contract size * Commission rate in account`s deposit currency * 2
  • Commission (in AUD) = 1 lot * 4.0 AUD * 2 = 8.0 AUD

Example 2

Initial values


  • Deposit currency of your account: USD
  • USD commission rate: 3.0
  • Instrument traded: USD/JPY
  • Volume traded: 1 lot

Calculations


  • Commission (in account`s deposit currency) = Contract size * Commission rate in account`s deposit currency * 2
  • Commission (in USD) = 1 lot * 3.0 USD * 2 = 6.0 USD

Example 3

Initial values


  • Deposit currency of your account: EUR
  • EUR commission rate: 3.0
  • Instrument traded: XAUUSD
  • Volume traded: 1 lot

Calculations


  • Commission (in account`s deposit currency) = Contract size * Commission rate in account`s deposit currency * 2
  • Commission (in EUR) = 1 lot * 3.0 EUR * 2 = 6.0 EUR


Commissions for Australian Share CFDs on Admiral.MT5 accounts

Calculation guidelines

Commission charged for the AU share CFDs (AUD-denominated) is 0.07 % of the transaction`s notional value, with the minimum commission being 7 AUD per transaction.

Commission is charged in full amount (i.e. as a summary commission for opening and closing transactions) upon opening a position.

Therefore, the commission value for the AU CFDs is calculated as Transaction`s Notional Value * 0.07% * Exchange Rate * 2,


whereas:

  • Transaction`s Notional Value is calculated as CFD Open Price * Contract Size (in Lots);
  • 0.07% is a multiplier representing the commission rate;
  • Exchange Rate is a multiplier representing the conversion rate from the commission currency (AUD) to your account`s currency;
  • 2 is a doubling multiplier as the commission is charged for both trade sides in a single transaction upon opening a position.

If the resulting commission value calculated using the above formula is less than the minimum commission value for both sides (i.e. 7 AUD * 2 sides = 14 AUD), then the minimum commission charge is applied.

The following examples show how you can calculate the commission for your positions on #CBA.AU (Commonwealth Bank of Australia CFD) and #NAB.AU (National Australia Bank Ltd CFD).


Important Note:

CFDs (Contracts for Difference) are derivative contracts that allow traders to take advantage of the price fluctuations of the underlying asset without acquisition of the ownership rights for that asset. Learn more about the benefits of our share CFD offering.


Example 1: opening a position on #CBA.AU and paying a commission

Initial values


  • Account`s deposit currency: USD
  • Instrument: #CBA.AU
  • Lot size: 1 share CFD
  • Contract size: 250 lots
  • Open price #CBA.AU: 77.05
  • AUDUSD rate in MetaTrader 4: 0.69049

Calculations


  • Commission (in account`s deposit currency) = CFD Open Price (in AUD) * Contract size (in Lots) * Commission Rate (in %) * Rate of commission currency (AUD) to account`s deposit currency (USD) * 2 Trade Sides
  • Commission (in USD) = 77.05 AUD per share CFD * 250 lots / 100 * 0.07 * 0.69049 * 2 = 18.62 USD

Since the mathematical value of the commission is higher than the minimum commission per two sides (7 AUD * 2 = 14 AUD or 9.67 USD in account`s currency), a commission charge of 18.62 USD is applied to this position.


Example 2: opening a position on #NAB.AU and paying a minimum commission

Initial values


  • Account`s deposit currency: USD
  • Instrument: #NAB.AU
  • Lot size: 1 share CFD
  • Contract size: 100 lots
  • Open price #NAB.AU: 27.69
  • AUDUSD rate in MetaTrader 4: 0.69049

Calculations


  • Commission (in account`s deposit currency) = CFD Open Price (in AUD) * Contract size (in Lots) * Commission Rate (in %) * Rate of commission currency (AUD) to account`s deposit currency (USD) * 2 Trade Sides
  • Commission (in USD) = 27.69 AUD per share CFD * 100 lots / 100 * 0.07 * 0.69049 * 2 = 2.67 USD

Since the mathematical value of the commission is lower than the minimum commission per two sides (7 AUD * 2 = 14 AUD or 9.67 USD in account`s currency), a minimum commission charge of 14 AUD in account`s currency is applied to this position.



Commission Rates for Japanese Share CFDs on Admiral.MT5 Accounts

Calculation Guidelines

The commission charged for JP share CFDs is 0.1% of the transaction`s notional value, with the minimum commission being 1000.0 JPY per transaction.

Commission is charged per side of the trade (i.e. separately for opening and closing transactions). Therefore, the round turn commission value for JP CFDs is calculated as: the Transaction`s Notional Value * 0.1% * Exchange Rate * 2 trade sides,

whereas:


  • the transaction`s Notional Value is calculated as: CFD Open Price * Contract Size (in Lots);
  • 0.1% is a multiplier representing the commission rate;
  • Exchange Rate is a multiplier representing the conversion rate from the commission currency (JPY) to your account`s currency;
  • 2 is a doubling multiplier, as the commission is charged for both sides of the trade. If the resulting commission value, calculated using the above formula, is less than the minimum commission value, then the minimum commission charge is applied.

The following examples show how you can calculate the commission levels for opening a long and short positions on #7203.JP (Toyota Motor Corp CFD) and #9984.JP (SoftBank Group Corp CFD).

Example 1: Opening a Long Position on #7203.JP and Paying Commission

Initial Values


  • Account`s deposit currency: USD
  • Instrument: #7203.JP
  • Instrument’s quote currency: JPY
  • Lot size: 1 share CFD
  • Contract size: 500 lots
  • Open price #7203.JP: 7551.00
  • JPYUSD rate: 0.0092

Calculations


  • Commission (in the account`s deposit currency) = CFD Open Price (in JPY) * Contract size (in Lots) * Commission Rate (in %) * Rate of commission currency (JPY) to the account`s deposit currency (USD) * 2 trade sides
  • Commission (in USD) = 7551.00 JPY per share CFD * 500 lots * 0.1 / 100 * 0.0092 * 2 = 69.47 USD

Since the mathematical value of the commission is higher than the minimum commission per two sides (1000.0 JPY * 2 = 2000.0 JPY or 18.43 USD in account`s currency), a commission charge of 69.47 USD is applied to this position.


Example 2: Opening a Short Position on #9984.JP and Paying the Minimum Commission

Initial Values


  • Account`s deposit currency: USD
  • Instrument: #9984.JP
  • Instrument’s quote currency: JPY
  • Lot size: 1 share CFD
  • Contract size: 50 lots
  • Open price #9984.JP: 4192.00
  • JPYUSD rate: 0.0092

Calculations


  • Commission (in the account`s deposit currency) = CFD Open Price (in JPY) * Contract size (in Lots) * Commission Rate (in %) * Rate of commission currency (JPY) to the account`s deposit currency (USD) * 2 trade sides
  • Commission (in USD) = 4192.00 JPY per share CFD * 50 lots * 0.1 / 100 * 0.0092 * 2 = 3.85 USD

Since the mathematical value of the commission is lower than the minimum commission per two sides (1000.0 JPY * 2 = 2000.0 JPY or 18.43 USD in account`s currency), a minimum commission charge of 2000.0 JPY in account`s currency is applied to this position.
