Commissions of using cTrader
There is no “Mark-up spread” nor “Maintenance Fees” on FXPro cTrader though, there is trading commissions charged when opening and closing positions.
The extra commissions charged is, 45 USD per 1 million USD traded (charged twice for both opening and closing)
Thus you will be charged 9 USD per 1 round turn lot.
FXPro cTrader with tight spread maybe a great environment for “Scalpers”, but you don’t want to forget that you are getting charged $9 for every 1 lot of position.
Spread can be widened
The minimum spread 0.2 pip on FXPro cTrader is still the minimum and the spread type is variable.
And FXPro reflects the raw-spread from its liquidity providers, and that spread can be widen by these liquidity providers.
The widened spread sometimes even reaches to 30 pips or more and it is a normal market event in certain situations.
There is a number of traders complaining about widened spread though, especially as FXPro is not a market maker, you may expect a bit extremely wider spread in some market situations.
