Compare Trading Costs

Home > Trading > Costs

Use our trading cost calculator to compare how much it will cost you to trade with different brokers. Just tell us what you trade, how often and the average value of each position. We will then compare brokers ranked from cheapest to most expensive for your specific type of trading.


When we compare trading costs we look at three things:

  1. What you trade (we’ve added a selection of the most popular indices, shares, commodities and FX pairs)
  2. How often do you trade it (the mount of buy and sell trades you execute per month)
  3. The size our your position (the size of your position relates to the value, not the amount of shares)


We then calculate the cost of that trade and rank brokers based on which one is the cheapest.

When comparing trading costs and commission you also need to look at overnight financing rates. This is the cost of holding a position overnight.

Yes, in our trading platform section you can read our views on the brokers when we tested the platform. You can also see how we rate providers based on pricing, service, added value and market access. 

We also rank brokers based on our assessment and over 17,000 votes in our annual awards.
