Commodities Spread Calculation
The CommoditiesTrading Conditions display the Standard Bid-Ask Spread OR ‘Spread Over Market’ for Commodity Instruments unless otherwise stated. Standard Spreads are as stated under Normal Market Conditions while the ‘Spread Over Market’ is the Mark-up CM Trading adds to the Current Market Spread.
Spread Cost Formula: Spread x Trade Size = Spread Charge in Currency Instrument is denominated in.
For a 10 barrel Crude Oil Trade, with a Spread of 4 pips ($0.04), the calculation is as follows:
0.04 X 10 = $0.40*
CM Trading is compensated through the Bid-Ask spread, except when otherwise stated.
CM Trading does not charge commissions on any trade.
Commodities Margin Calculation
All Instruments are traded on Margin allowing you to Leverage your positions. The Commodities Trading Conditions display Margin Amounts as a Percentage (%).
Percentage Margin Formula: Position Size x Current Price x Margin (%) = Margin Required*
* Margin Required is calculated in the Currency the Instrument is Denominated in.
For a 10 barrel Crude Oil Trade, with a Market Price of $64.00 and a Margin Requirement of 2.00%, the calculation is as follows:
Percentage Margin Requirement: 10 x 64 x 0.02 = $12.80*
Commodities Buy/Sell Overnight Interest Calculation
The Commodities Trading Conditions display the Over-Night (O/N) Interest Rates Charged/Paid on a daily basis for holding a position open past the End of Day time. These are displayed in the “Overnight Interest – Buy” and “Overnight Interest – Sell” columns. End of Day is 22:00 GMT except during Daylight Savings when it changes to 21:00 GMT.
You can use the following formula to calculate your Overnight Interest amount:
Swap calculation = No Of nights * Swap (buy or sell) *No of Lots*Point value
For a 1 lot CRUDE OIL trade, with a Daily Swap Buy Rate of -4 and subject to charge for 1 day the calculation is as follows:
SWAP = 1x-4x1x10= -40 USD .
• Point value = Contract size *No of Decimals in the Pair.
For CRUDE OIL, the price is denominated in 2 decimals. Point value = 1000(contract size) * 0.01 (number of decimals) so the point value for CRUDE OIL is 10
For COPPER the price is denominated in 4 decimals.
Point value = 250 (contract size) * 0.0001(number of decimals) so the point value for COPPER is 0.0250
• Overnight Interest Charged/Paid is calculated in the Currency the Instrument is Denominated in.
