Futures Trading with FXFlat

FXFlat offers you direct access to futures trading at the German derivatives exchange EUREX. The trading platform MetaTrader 5 offers you a tick-by-tick data feed. This means that you will see all the prices that were traded and not just snapshot data, which only updates every few seconds. Further MetaTrader 5 offers you the possibility to hedge a position. That means, that within one contract, you can hold open positions long and short at the same time, using the one-click-order.

Futures trading goes together with an intraday and an overnight margin requirement. The margin requirement at FXFlat is intraday only a small percentage of the margin requirement from EUREX (about 10 % of the EUREX margin requirement). For example, the margin requirement for a Micro-DAX Future is only €60.00 per contract.

At FXFlat, you pay an all-inclusive price for Futures trading. The exchange fee will therefore not be charged separately, but you only pay a fixed price per contract like €1.00 per contract, per side halfturn.

FXFlat customers have the choice between EUREX real-time prices and/or CME real-time prices via CQG. The fees for EUREX real-time courses at FXFlat are €20.00 per month. The CME fees for real-time courses (bundle) are €30.00 per month.

At FXFlat active customers who generate a minimum commission of €300.00 per month with EUREX Futures receive free EUREX prices in real time. For CME real-time courses, the minimum commission is €300.00 per month with CME Futures trading. If the minimum commission is not reached, the full amount will be charged to the trading account.
