Account margin & interest rates

Margin rates*

≤ 100,000: 2.09% (BM + 2%)

100,000 ≤ 1,000,000: 1.59% (BM + 1.5%)

1,000,000 ≤ 3,000,000: 1.09% (BM + 1%)

3,000,000 ≤ 200,000,000: 0.89% (BM + 0.8%)

Interest rates

0 ≤ 10,000 : 0%

> 10,000 : 0% (BM - 1%)

* When calculating rates, please note that Darwinex uses a blended rate.

For example, for balances over USD 1,000,000: The first 100,000 is charged at the Tier I rate, the next 900,000 at the Tier II rate, and so on.

When determining the quoted spread, Darwinex will use the set benchmark rate - or a benchmark rate of 0 - for all benchmark rates less than 0.

Darwinex accrues interest on a daily basis and posts actual interest monthly, on the third business day of the following month.

The tiers on which interest is based may change periodically without prior notification to clients. Such adjustments are performed to account for changes in currency rates (in USD).
