    For clients granting a management to Dukascopy Bank (LP PAMM)

    The volume commission rate is discretionary set by Dukascopy Bank between USD 25 and USD 0 per USD 1 million traded. The currently applied rate and the history is available at LP PAMM web page.

  • Rollover conditions

  • Wealth management (LP PAMM) fees and commissions

  • In order to enter into binary option contracts, the client shall pay a premium which corresponds to the contract size. The premium is automatically debited by Dukascopy Bank from the client account, prior to opening any option contract for the client. If the funds on the client's account are insufficient to pay the premium, Dukascopy Bank automatically adjusts the contract size and/or rejects the client order(s).

    Dukascopy Bank does not charge any additional fees other than the premium for entering into binary options contracts. However, the client understands and accepts that the market spread between the BID and the ASK price which exists for all tradable instruments negatively influences the probability of a gain. It should be noted that, in the case of Up option, the strike price of the option is based on the ASK but the relevant price at the maturity of the option, which determines if the option is In or Out-of-the-money, is the BID price. Inversely, for a Down option, the strike is based on the BID and the determining price at the maturity of the option is the ASK price. This means that, in order to be In-the-money, the price of the underlying shall move in the forecast direction more than the spread size.

  • SMS (Short Message Service) notification fees are charged in EUR for every message sent to the client in accordance with their subscriptions. Fees are converted to the base currency of the client account and are charged at the settlement time.

    Every message will incur a charge of 0.07 EUR. Charged commissions appear daily in a separate entry on the Portfolio statement of the client.

    This pricing applies to every SMS sent to the phone operator of the client.
