Volume-based commissions

With Saxo, you can trade on competitive volume-based commissions where the more you trade, the less cost incurred. For example, pay only 1.50 Euros per contract when you trade 1,001-5,000 contracts vs. paying three Euros per contract when trading fewer than 1,000 contracts.*

No hidden costs

No need to worry about any hidden fees: trade Contract Options with no minimum ticket fees or carrying costs. Exchange fees still apply.*

Use Stocks and Bonds as collateral

If you are a Stocks or Bonds trader, you already have assets that can be used as collateral toward your Contract Options trading. For example, use up to 92% of your Bonds value as collateral.

Competitive pricing

We deliver access to competitive pricing and tight spreads – all in one click. Use our platform to trade on live streaming prices for full transparency. And with volume-based commissions, the more you trade, the less cost you'll incur.
