Fees (spreads/commission)

OctaFX’s commission and fees vary depending on one of the three available account types chosen: MT4 Micro, MT5 Pro, or the cTrader ECN account.

Comparably, spreads are highest in the MT4 Micro account where the broker offers only 37 tradeable instruments; the EUR/USD typical spread is listed as 1.1 pips, whereas the MT5 Pro account provides the full range of tradeable products, and spreads drop slightly to 0.9 pips.

Compared to its other account types, the cTrader ECN account at OctaFX is more limited in product range with only 28 forex pairs and two metals, and uses a $6 per round-turn standard lot ($3 per side) commission-based fee structure, which is added to typical spreads of 0.3 pips, bringing the all-in cost to 0.9 pips. Therefore, the MT5 Pro account stands out as it similarly priced as the cTrader ECN account, but nearly double the range of tradeable instruments.
