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).
Compensation: When executing customers' trades, Friedberg Direct can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: spreads, charging fixed lot-based commissions at the open and close of a trade, adding a markup to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers for certain account types, and adding a markup to rollover, etc.
