The table below shows Friedberg Direct's average spreads. Our spreads are extremely low due to healthy competition in our vast network of global banks, financial institutions and other market makers that make up our renowned No Dealing Desk. You trade on the exact bid/ask quotes that stream from our liquidity providers.
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
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).
