Important upcoming change to our fees structure – etoro

This change means that starting June 15th, all Carry Over Weekend fees as you know them will be cancelled and instead, we will introduce a new fees model – Overnight Rollover. This new way of calculating fees is in fact not really new at all – Overnight Rollover fees are the industry standard, and are employed by almost all brokers, as it more accurately reflects the supply and demand forces driving the market.

Example 1, EUR/USD: With our current Carry Over the Weekend fees, it costs $2 per lot (10,000 currency units) to hold a buy or sell EUR/USD position over the weekend. In our new structure, with a daily “Sell” fee of $0.23, if you were to carry a Sell position for 7 days (a comparable period to our existing Carry Over the Weekend fee), it would cost you $1.61 – less than our current fee.


Moreover, you will receive $0.01 per lot for holding a “Buy” EUR/USD position overnight.

Example 2, GBP/USD: With our current Carry Over the Weekend fees, it costs $1 per lot (10,000 currency units) to hold a buy or sell GBP/USD position over the weekend. In our new structure, with a daily “Sell” fee of $0.60, if you were to carry a Sell position for seven days (a comparable period to our existing Carry Over the Weekend fee), your cost would increase to $4.20 compared to $1. However, the overnight rollover for a Buy position is plus $0.03, and so you will have $0.21 credited to your account for carrying this position for seven days, as opposed to the $1 it would cost under the old system.

Please note that because we will no longer be charging Carry Over the Weekend fees, all positions that are still open at market close on Friday will remain open over the weekend automatically (you no longer have to check the “Carry over the Weekend” box) and you will only be charged or credited with the standard daily rollover fee/credit for a position that was open on Friday night.
