What are the fees (opening and rollover) for trading using margin?
In addition to the margin* fees (opening and rollover) listed below, the usual trade fee will be applied to the opening and closing volume of a spot position on margin (but there is no fee for settling a spot position on margin).
Margin fees are charged based on the total value of the amount that is extended as margin to effect the margin trade. Collateral also held in the account is not deducted from that amount.
See here for a discussion on how Kraken determines which currency to use to charge the Margin Fee.

Example

If you go Long on BTC/USD:
Kraken provides the USD (used to purchase long the BTC) to open the position and thus the amount of the margin fee is based on the quantity of USD. As mentioned, the choice of currency in which the margin fee is charged is discussed here. As Kraken provided the USD, the fee rate will be 0.02%
If you go Short on BTC/USD:
Funds from our BTC margin pool are used by the client to let them short sell and thus margin fees are based on the quantity of BTC that is sold. As Kraken provided the BTC, the fee rate will be 0.010%
