Transaction Costs

Two components make up your total transaction costs when trading forex with Friedberg Direct: our low commissions and tight spreads.

How to determine transaction cost:

Say for example that you want to trade a 1K lot of USD/CAD on a CAD denominated account. Simply add the commission to open and close a 1K USD/CAD trade (CAD$0.05 + CAD$0.05 = CAD$0.10) with the value of the spread (0.5 pips x .10) = $CAD0.05.

1K USD/CAD TRADE EXAMPLE

Spreads Box Example

To find the value of the spread, multiply the spread and the pip cost (displayed in the Simple Dealing Rates window of Friedberg Direct's trading platform).
