Transaction Fees

Fees are computed based on a percentage of the notional order value for a matched trade. The "Taker" side of the trade pays a fee, while the "Maker" side of the trade receives a rebate. Fees and rebates are transferred in the collateral currency of the contract being traded.

FAQ

When am I a Taker, when am I a Maker?

If you submit an order that crosses the order book and is immediately matched, you pay the taker fee. If you submit an order that first sits in the order book before it is matched, you receive the maker rebate.

How are Settlements, Liquidations, Assignments and Terminations treated?

  • Positions that are settled in final settlement are treated as taker.
  • Liquidations are treated as taker.
  • Assignments are treated as taker.
  • Terminations are treated as taker for the party causing the termination, and fees for the other party are 0.

Can I transfer out my Maker rebates?

Yes. Any Maker rebate you receive is immediately credited to your cash balance, i.e. is not just an offset towards future fees.

Where can I see the fees I have paid and the rebates I have received?

You can look up the fees you have paid by navigating to the "Logs" tab in the bottom panel of the trading platform.

Do you charge any other fees?

We do not charge any other fees.
