Trade Nation’s account structure is simple, with the only two types of account available being the low leverage (up to 1:30) and high leverage (up to 1:200) accounts. Customers will not benefit from as reputable regulation or any financial compensation scheme if applying for the high leverage accounts. Market access, fees and trading tools are the same across each account.
Spreads & Commission
Customers benefit from low, fixed spreads at Trade Nation. Both the EUR/GBP and EUR/USD spreads are 0.6 pips before 10pm. The market information sheet provides spread details for all times of the day.
The company is open about their trading fees. Aside from spreads, the only other charge is overnight interest applied to trades. The amount depends on the market being traded and the direction of the trade, clients should contact customer support if specific details are required.
Leverage offered by Trade Nation depends on which financial authority the customer’s account is regulated by.
