Whether you’re looking at long-term investments or short-term trading, setting up a Saxo trading account will enable you to do both. Given that Saxo Markets has a global scale of investment products and trading tools, you’ll find more than enough features that can help you get better at trading.
If you’re into day trading, you may want to look into SaxoTradingGO or SaxoTradingPRO. These platforms have a bunch of reliable trading instruments, so you can expand your portfolio through various currency pairs, engage in long or short trades, execute trades across 36 global exchanges, dabble in the commodity market, as well as invest in CFDs, futures, options, spot metals, FX trading, ETFs and bonds.
Now, if you’re the type who invests on a long-term basis, the online SaxoInvestor platform offers multiple investment options too. What’s good about this trading platform is that it allows you to manage your diverse investment portfolio from a single account. It even has an integrated research tool to keep you up-to-date on what's happening in the market.
Here’s what you should always take note of – there’s no one fixed commission fee when it comes to trading. In the case of Saxo Markets, their commission fees vary by product and exchange. If you invest in mutual funds through them, there’s zero commission fee involved. However, for other products, the commission fees vary based on the type and trading volume. They publish their rates on their website, along with those of other Singapore-based brokers, for ease of comparison.
If you’re new to trading, spread is simply the difference in the offer and ask price that a trader is willing to pay. So it represents the cost for traders and the profit for sellers. To check Saxo’s past and present spreads, you’ll find a detailed breakdown on their website, where you’ll also find a table comparing their minimum spreads with those of other Singapore-based brokers.
You’ll be surprised that rollover rates are typically overlooked by traders. This rate is the interest that’s either charged or credited to your account each time you keep your position open overnight. By doing so, you’ll either earn profits or incur losses, which can be significant or negligible, depending on how long you hold your position open.
