As Single Stock CFDs at Saxo Bank are a margined product, you finance the traded value through an overnight credit/debit charge.If you open and close a CFD position within the same trading day, you are not subject to overnight financing.
When you hold a Single Stock CFD position (or an ETF/ETC CFD postion) overnight (i.e. have an open CFD position at close of market on the Stock Exchange, your CFD position will consequently be subject to the following credit or debit:
When you hold a long CFD position, you are subject to a debit calculated on the basis of the relevant Inter-Bank Offer Rate for the currency in which the underlying share is traded (e.g. LIBOR) plus a mark-up (times Actual Days/360 or Actual Days/365).
When you hold a short CFD position, you receive a credit calculated on the basis of the relevant Inter-Bank Bid Rate for the currency in which the underlying share is traded (e.g. LIBID) minus a mark-down (times Actual Days/360 or Actual Days/365).
The credit/debit is calculated on the total nominal value of the underlying Stock(s) at the time the CFD contract is established (whether long or short).
Should the relevant Inter-Bank Bid Rate minus the mark-down result in a debit as opposed to a credit, then you will pay the finance charge.
In the Single Stock CFD Commissions section above you can see the overnight financing charges we use for each exchange.
