What kind of commissions can you earn by trading forex?
Sep 26, 2017 at 8:11 am #1032
Forex trading has gained a great deal of prominence in the last couple of years. In the forex market, the investors interested in trading futures, options and stocks, engage in trading through a broker. Thus, a broker not only accepts the order on behalf of the trader (investor) but also executes the same as per his/her specific instructions. However, once the client (investor) has bought and sold the trading instrument, the broker charges a certain amount of commission for offering his/her service and support to the client.
Thus, the forex market is essentially a principal driven market and therefore has no commissions. The Forex firms basically function as dealers and unlike the brokers it is the dealers who bear markets risks by assisting an investor in executing his trade/transactions. Thus, dealers don’t charge any commission and instead earn money via the spread received as a result of the bidding and asking price. In the case of forex, an investor/trader cannot make any attempts for buying financial instruments on the bidding or selling price, which is possible in an exchange driven market. Also, the moment the price surpasses the spread costs, no extra commissions is payable on the same. The entire money gained by the investor, automatically becomes his/her profit.00Nov 17, 2017 at 6:14 am #1302
Broker’s fee/commission00Dec 3, 2017 at 12:10 am #1549
I don’t think every broker charges commission, as there is spread that is taken upfront. I believe that is a fairly understandable thing, I don’t see anything wrong with any broker charging fees for their service. I just want to have one that I can trust even with having to pay something for the service, as that is very much acceptable with good service.00Dec 10, 2017 at 6:41 pm #1653
As a trader, I have earned through rebates. In fact, it is very common nowadays. You mostly get 50% of the rebates. I have been trading for last 8/9 years.
Most of this time is through Instaforex, I made something like 10-15k from rebates but that was the ONLY good part with this broker, as rest of the service was very average, and that’s when I am in my best mood.00Dec 13, 2017 at 12:02 pm #1681
I am not able to understand the question properly. It seems you are asking about individual and their earning thing, but then in post, you seem to be pointing out on what brokers may earn. So, it is all too hard to answer like that. I don’t earn commission by trading instead I pay as we all do by spread/commission. And for a broker, they earn via spread or the commission.00
