Do you live in South Africa? Then please go to HotForex ZA (South Africa) main introduction page.
Unlike the actual stock trading, you can benefit more by trading the stocks in a form of CFD.
Low trading cost is one of the advantages.
There are three types of trading cost that you need to cover, when you trade Stock CFD on HotForex MT4.
The spread (the difference between buy and sell prices) starts from 0.01.
It is normally fixed, but can be changed depending on the market situation.
The raw spread of Stock CFD comes from HotForex’s liquidity provider.
2. Trading Commission
The trading commission is only 0.1% for trading of Stock CFDs on HotForex MT4.
It is fixed for all Stock CFDs on the platform.
This extra commission is the cost you need to pay beside the spread cost.
0.1% is quite lower than other stock agencies.
3. Swap Points(overnight financing)
In case you are holding open positions overnight(in MT4 server time), you need to pay for swap charges depending on the direction of the position you are trading.
If the swap point is positive, you can earn swap points instead and that will be profits for your account.
The latest swap points can be found in MT4 directly.
You can find more information of trading conditions in HotForex Official Website.
