The main way a company makes money on CFD products is spreads – the exchange commission, which is added to the market price.

The price of any trade takes into account two prices (known as Bid and Ask), so you will always buy slightly above the market price and sell slightly below.

If Microsoft Corporation is trading at $ 135.00 and has a one pip spread, then the Ask price will be $ 135.10 and the Bid price $ 134.90.

How does the company receive commission

The company has various types of proposed instruments for generating income through speculation in the financial markets, many of which represent a large array of work of the analytical department. Such lists include proposals for IPO and OTC projects, artificial intelligence IIA + and ready-made investment solutions from the company.

Using such services, the company’s clients undertake to pay a commission for the profitability received from these instruments. The percentage of commissions is indicated on the instrument pages, and is also negotiated individually for the client in working with IPO and OTC.

Client’s actual profit commissions:

  • 10% – Artificial Intelligence IIA +
  • from 10% to 25% – IPO and OTC projects
  • from 10% to 20% – Investment ideas

Does the company profit from customer losses?

Our business model is based on enabling people to trade in global financial markets in exchange for fair and proportionate transaction fees. It is known that trading successfully is difficult and most speculative traders tend to lose. However, we usually do not benefit from trading losses that an unsuccessful client might have.

Basically, our clients offset each other's positions. For example, if Client A buys one DAX lot and Client B sells one DAX lot, both sides of the trade are covered. This means that 4Trade is not subject to the profit or loss of any of the clients. Instead, we make our money through the spread or commission that each client pays to trade.

Sometimes the vast majority of clients will trade in one direction. When this happens, we will protect our exposure by hedging the market. For example, if client A and client B buy DAX, we can buy actual DAX futures. In this way, we cover the amount that we will pay if the results of both clients are successful.
