ActivTrades announces big drop in share CFDs fees

With its minimum commission of just €1 on the major European stock exchanges, ActivTrades redefines equity CFDs trading

London, 3th June 2014

The global online broker ActivTrades, operating in the financial markets since 2001, has made a big cut in its commission for trading share CFDs on the Euronext, Italian and German exchanges lowering the threshold to just €1. The fee, previously set at €8, will now be calculated as a 0.05% per ticket of the transaction value, with the minimum commission being €1.

This move significantly lifts the barrier to the leading European stock exchanges and enables investors to trade share CFDs worth of €2,000 with just €1 fee. A basket of stocks worth €5,000  would have a commission of only €2.50 and a €10,000 basket only  €5. Before the cut, traders were paying €8 per ticket up to €100,000.

For the forex broker based in the world's leading financial district the City in London, which recently launched the highly traded currency pairs USD/CNH (US dollar/China Offshore Spot) and USD/RUB (US Dollar/Russian Rouble), this is another strategic step towards further global expansion.

Alex Pusco, Chairman of ActivTrades said: "Our clients are at the heart of our business and we strive to offer them the best service possible at all times. With this new fee structure we want to give a greater opportunity even to investors with lower trading volumes to enter and trade in the equity markets and benefit from special discounts along the way”.
