Example: holding an index CFD trade overnight

Let's say you have a position of one contract on the US Tech 100, currently priced at 12475. Your position’s full exposure is, therefore, $12,475.

The US Tech 100 underlying market is denominated in USD. Therefore, the applicable interest rate benchmark is the secured overnight financing rate (SOFR) – which is at the time of writing 4.66448% annually, or 0.01278% daily.

Our daily fee is 0.01096%.

To hold a long position overnight, you would pay 0.02374% – SOFR plus our fee – of your exposure, which is $2.96.

To hold a short position, you would receive 0.00182% – SOFR minus our fee – of your exposure, which is $0.23.

Please note that these rates could change in the future, but the current rates are always displayed on our platform.
