Where an instrument currency is different to the account currency, currency conversions of trading costs as well as profit/loss from trading activities are executed using the VX Spot mid-price at the time of closing the position plus or minus 1% (classic accounts), 0.5% (platinum accounts), or 0.3% (VIP accounts).
For cash products (stocks, bonds, ETFs and the premium on options) currency conversions are charged on the purchase and sale at the mid FX Spot rate, plus/minus 1%.
For derivative products excluding FX Options, currency conversions are charged on the profit and loss at the mid FX Spot rate, plus/minus 1%. For FX Options the rate is plus/minus 0.1%.
The Currency conversion fee does not apply to margin collateral. Only settlement of actual payments to or from the trading account are included, for example, buying/selling cash Stocks, paying/receiving options premium etc.
The rate used for currency conversion of amounts booked to your account is shown in the trading platforms under the “Trades Executed” report.
