Traded volume is volume of executed trades over the last 30 days in USD equivalent.

In case Net Deposit, Equity and Traded Volume lead to different commission rates, Dukascopy Bank applies the lowest (as illustrated in the examples below).

For Self Traders with several margin accounts with Dukascopy Bank, Net Deposits, Equities and Traded Volumes are cumulated to define a unique volume commission rate applied to all margin accounts.

The volume commission is determined on a daily basis at every settlement time. The defined rate will be applied on the following trading day.

For Clients appointing an external manager/attorney, the volume commission rate may amount to a maximum of USD 100 per USD 1 million traded. 

All volume commissions are converted to the Client account's base currency at the moment when the trade is executed, at Dukascopy Bank SA current spot rate adjusted by a 0.1% fee.

In addition to the standard volume commission an extra fee USD 5 per 1 million USD for currencies and USD 7.5 per 1 million USD for precious metals is applicable to swap-free-accounts.
