How do costs and charges affect my account?

Costs and charges are what you pay to Plus500 for the investment services and financial instruments provided, as well as for some aspects and features of trading. There are ongoing, one-off, transaction and incidental costs, all of which are charged to your account, and will affect your profits/losses accordingly.

Some of these charges are implicit, such as the spread, which is included in the buy/sell prices. Other costs are explicit, and are charged separately as shown in your account statement.

It is important to note that, for most of the charges, the costs are directly proportional to the size and volume of your trades. Also, for every day that your trades are open overnight, an overnight funding fee will be charged. Therefore, all costs and charges applied will have an impact on the expected return of your investment.

In order to get an itemised breakdown of the costs and charges you have incurred, check your account’s annual report. For information on how to get your report, see How do I get my costs and charges statement?
