NEW! Fixed spreads on Index Trackers
Saxo Bank clients will experience consistently low spreads when trading CFD Index Trackers during the main trading hours. For the most popular Index Trackers, the Bid/Ask spread will be equal to the minimum target spread in approx. 99% of the quote updates during the opening hours of the underlying cash market.*
NEW! Intraday Margin on Index Trackers
Saxo Bank has introduced Intraday Margin on our most popular Index-tracking CFDs, lowering the margin requirements by 50%. That means you will have twice the trading capacity when trading CFD indices such as the UK 100, Germany 30 or US 500 during the index’s intraday session.
NEW! Direct Market Access
Access to Single Stock CFDs with Saxo Bank is very transparent and benefits from significant underlying liquidity, given that the hedging is always executed on a pure Direct Market Access (DMA) basis, where all orders are routed to regulated markets and other liquidity venues via smart order routing.
Smart Order Routing
We execute Equity and CFD orders via SORs (Smart Order Routers), which are sophisticated algorithms placing orders across multiple venues in order to achieve the best result. To minimise market impact and improve quality of execution, SORs execute across regulated markets (Exchanges), MTFs and other liquidity venues.
Algorithmic Orders are especially useful for larger or more advanced single stock CFD orders. They used algorithmic equations to independently execute order transactions most efficiently, according to the client’s chosen strategy. They can also break down an order into smaller parts to avoid showing the full size of the order.
Stocks as Margin Collateral
When trading CFDs you can use a percentage of your Stocks, ETFs or Bonds value as margin collateral and increase your market exposure.
