What Is Commission in a Trading Account?

Brokerage companies receive income from providing services for conducting activity in the financial market to private and corporate customers.

Commission means a trader’s fee for conducting financial operations in the trading account. It is charged for each executed transaction, and its amount depends on the traded volume.

You can open not only a Demo account or a Live account, but also an iPA-Investor account and an iPA-Manager account on the UBK Markets official website. The latter is a non-nominal one, i.e. it does not have marginal requirements.

Taking into account that an iPA-Investor has an opportunity to subscribe to copying the iPA-Manager’s trading signals, nominal commission is charged for the iPA-Manager account. It is calculated in pips and corresponds to the money equivalent of the commission charged for the iPA-Investor account. This parameter allows excluding the possibility of receiving a negative income in the iPA-Investor account in cases, when the amount of profit received from executing a trading operation in the iPA-Manager account is less than the commission charged in the iPA‑Investor account.
