  1. Commissions apply to all order types.
  2. VAT, also referred to as consumption tax, goods and services tax, where applicable, will be separately applied for eligible services.
  3. Modified orders will be treated as the cancellation and replacement of an existing order with a new order. On certain exchanges, this may have the effect of subjecting modified orders to commission minimums as if they were new orders. For example, if an order for 200 contracts is submitted and 100 contracts execute, then you modify the order and another 100 contracts execute, a commission minimum would be applied to both 100 contract orders. Orders that persist overnight will be considered a new order for the purposes of determining order minimums.
  4. Commission models are not guaranteed to be a direct pass-through of exchange and third-party fees and rebates. Costs passed on to clients in these commission schedule may be greater than the costs paid to the relevant exchange, regulator, clearinghouse or third party. For example, IB may receive volume discounts that are not passed on to clients. Likewise, rebates passed on to clients may be less than the rebates IB receives from the relevant market.

Euronext Bonds
  1. Trade Value = Nominal*PriceInPercent/100.
  2. The exchange levies a charge of EUR 2.00 per order for each order over the exchange-allowed 5:1 order to execution ratio. New orders and order modifications count in the ratio, cancels do not.
  3. VAT, also referred to as consumption tax, goods and services tax, where applicable, will be separately applied for eligible services.
  4. Modified orders will be treated as the cancellation and replacement of an existing order with a new order. On certain exchanges, this may have the effect of subjecting modified orders to commission minimums as if they were new orders. For example, if an order for bonds with USD 20,000 Face Value is submitted and 10,000 face value executes, then you modify the order and another 10,000 face value executes, a commission minimum where applicable would be applied to both 10,000 face value executions. Orders that persist overnight will be considered a new order for the purposes of determining order minimums.
  • For example1:
    Nominal = EUR 8000.
    Price = 106.62 %
    Total Value = 8000*106.62/100 = 8529.60
    Commission 0.1 % = 8529.60 * 0.001 = EUR 8.53
  • For example2:
    Four orders are submitted, and each is modified one time. One execution results and the charge is EUR 6.00. The calculation is shown below:
    4 orders + 4 modifications = 8 orders compared to 1 execution, giving an order to execution ratio of 8:1.
    Total Value = 8000*106.62/100 = 8529.60
    The difference between our order ratio of 8:1 and the exchange-allowed ratio of 5:1 is 3 (8:1 – 5:1 = 3)
    3 x EUR 2.00 = EUR 6.00
