OANDA Spread-only (Standard) vs Core Pricing Account Features

As with many specialist Forex brokers, OANDA Australia offer two forms of pricing for currency traders. The first is the standard spread-only pricing model in which a trader pays no commission, however the brokers spread is added to the market spread. This is the nature of a “standard” variable spread trading account that every single FX broker, including OANDA, offers.

The second pricing model OANDA offers is the Core Pricing + Commission model/account.
In this scenario, Australian traders (those with their account base currency as AUD) would pay a commission equivalent to AUD 3.50 per full currency lot (100,000 worth) per side, and in exchange access significantly lower spreads. These are the raw market spreads via an ECN type model.
Trades which are not in multiples of 100,000 will be charged on a pro rata basis and a minimum commission charge of AUD 0.01 applies.
