Experience commission-free futures trading

Classic futures trading, such as at Eurex, is always associated with order commissions. The typical rate ranges from 1.50 EUR to 4 EUR per contract, charged both on opening and on closing the contract (so EUR 3 to EUR 8 in total). When trading future CFDs at Admiral Markets, traders pay no commissions, which keeps trading costs low and leaves more room for profits.

Happy trading,

Admiral Markets
