Spreads are always floating. Because of this, the spreads in the above table are averages based on the previous trading day. For live spreads, please refer to the trading platform.

Our lowest spreads are on Zero account and remain fixed at 0.0 pips for 95% of the trading day. These instruments are marked with an asterisk in the table.


Swap is a type of commission applied to trading positions held overnight. The swap can be positive or negative, based on the interest rates of the underlying instrument and the position (buy or sell). It’s charged or paid to your trading account at 21:00 (GMT+0) each day, excluding weekends, until the position is closed.

On Wednesdays, a triple swap rate applies for positions in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium pairs to account for the market close over the weekend where no swaps are charged. For oil and natural gas positions, this triple charge will take place on Fridays instead.

If you have Extended swap-free status, you won’t be charged any swaps for the instruments marked in the table above. To check your swap status, simply log in to your Personal Area, go to Settings, and then to the Trading Conditions tab.

If you are a resident of a Muslim country, all accounts are automatically swap-free.

Stop level

Please note that the stop level values in the table above are subject to change and may not be available for traders using certain high-frequency trading strategies or Expert Advisors.

  • For XNGUSD (natural gas), leverage is set at 1:20

Margin requirements for USOIL and UKOIL always remain fixed with a leverage of 1:200, except for specific periods of higher margin requirements.

  • UKOIL: from 08:00 (GMT+0) on Friday to 00:30 (GMT+0) on Monday

Dynamic margin requirements

Margin requirements are tied to the rate of leverage you use. Changing your leverage will cause margin requirements on XAU (gold) and XAG (silver) pairs to change.

Just as spreads change depending on conditions, the leverage available to you can also vary. This can happen for a number of reasons:


The maximum leverage that you can use on your account depends on your account’s equity:

Equity, USD
Maximum leverage
0 – 999
0 – 4,999
5,000 – 29,999
30,000 or more
