Fees (Spreads/commission)

The Classic account is a commission-free account, in which traders only pay the bid/ask spread. The other two accounts, Pro and VIP, are both commission-based and have a per-trade commission added to lower prevailing spreads.

While the VIP account requires a minimum balance of $50,000 for traders to access low commissions of $1 per standard lot (100k units) or $2 per Round-Turn (RT), the Pro account has similar pricing with an RT commission of just $4 per round-turn standard lot. The Pro account is available with as little as $100 deposit.

Using typical spread data listed by Tickmill for its Pro account offering of 0.2 pips for the EUR/USD, the all-in cost equates to 0.52 pips when factoring in the RT commission equivalent of 0.32 pips. It is worth noting that Tickmill records typical spread data during normal market conditions

With a low commission rate, the Pro account will be ideal for most traders compared to the Classic account, as spreads are inherently less expensive, and 84 instruments, including 62 currency pairs, can be accessed. Meanwhile, active traders are eligible for further discounts, depending on their trading volumes in the VIP account, giving Tickmill competitive all-around pricing.
