    FXPro Review: Our Opinion

    FxPro is a reputable and trusted CFD broker that offers an ample selection of trading products such as crypto CFD trading, spread betting, Forex, algorithmic trading, stock indices, and much more. FxPro offers more than 2,100 tradable instruments. 

    However, FxPro’s major con is its high fees and commissions on certain instruments, which go up to $3.50 per lot on the MetaTrader 4 Raw Spread account. The broker also does not offer discounts for high-volume experienced traders on the commissions it does charge.

    FxPro Review: Cryptocurrencies Available on FxPro

    cryptocurrencies on fxpro

    FxPro supports trading CFDs of over 26 crypto assets. Some supported crypto assets include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Chainlink, Bitcoin Cash, Basic Attention Token, Aave, Dogecoin, Ethereum Classic, Filecoin, Monero, SushiSwap, Tezos, Uniswap, Theta, Tron, Polygon, Solana, etc. 

    Note: Crypto CFDs are not available to retail clients on FxPro UK Limited. 

    FxPro Review: Fees and Spreads

    FxPro Traders will be charged commissions only on FX Pairs and Spot Metals on the FxPro cTrader platform. For this, FxPro charges Traders $35 per million United States dollars traded. 

    If your trading account and the FxPro broker are denominated in a base currency other than the USD, the trading platform converts the fee to your respective currency. 

    Here is the formula used by the broker in calculating commission fees:

    • The commission per side = Trade size in base currency/USD conversion rate X $35 per USD million traded/Account currency exchange rate

    For example, if you were trading 100,000 EUR/JPY, here’s how you’d calculate the commission fee: 

    • Step 1: Convert your trade size from your trading account’s base currency to USD: 100,000 EUR X 1.1685 (EURUSD rate) = 116,850 USD
    • Step 2: Calculate FxPro’s commission charges in USD ($35 per USD million traded): 116,850 USD X 0.000035 = 4.09 USD
    • Step 3: Convert FxPro’s commission fees from USD to JPY (your trading account currency): 4.09 USD X 111.50 (USDJPY rate) = 456 JPY

    So the commission fees incurred upon opening and closing the particular position = 456 JPY.

    Swap Fees

    FxPro charges swap or rollover fees when a trade is kept open overnight. This reflects the cost of funding your trade. 

    The brokerage company charges this swap fee automatically at 21:59 UK time to the respective trading account. 

    It is then converted to the currency that your account is denominated in. 

    On the MetaTrader 4, cTrader, and FxPro trading platforms the swap fee is calculated and charged once every weekday. This is except for Friday where it would be calculated and charged 3 times to cover for the weekend rollover (Monday to Friday)

    No swap fees are charged for future contracts and swap rates are reviewed weekly as well as updated accordingly. 

    That said, FxPro offers a swap-free account that comes with additional conditions. 

    Here’s an example of how Swap fees are charged for the Forex instrument:

    • If a trader sells 1.0 lot (100,000 units) of EURUSD and holds it for one night with a rollover of -0.5803 Points, then the swap fee would be -0.58 USD. However, if the trader buys 3.0 lots (300,000 units) of USDJPY and holds it for 2 nights with a swap rate of -1.9997 Points, then the swap fee would be -1199.82 Yen. 

    The income or cost is calculated as the interest rate differential between the Tomorrow Next Deposit Rates of both currencies in question + the commission charged by the company on the position held and depends on the type of position (buy/sell). 

    Traders can either gain or lose on swaps. It is also possible for some trading instruments to have negative rollover values on both sides due to the commission added on top of the overnight interest rate differential of the 2 currencies in question. 

    For Spot Metals and Spot Indices, the swap fees charged are dependent on the underlying Tomorrow Next Deposit Rate of the quote currency of the relevant asset + commission FxPro broker charges in Long positions or minus the commission charged by FxPro on Short positions. 


    On the FxPro MetaTrader 4 Raw Spread account, the broker like most competitor companies charges spreads (industry-average spreads) on FX & Metals without mark-up. However, there is an additional commission of $3.50 charged per lot when you open and close the position. 

    Other trading instruments offer floating spreads and no commissions. 

    On other MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5, and FxPro accounts, the broker does not charge commissions on any trading instruments. You will only be charged spreads on which the broker will apply a markup and applicable swap charges. This applies to Spread Betting accounts in the United Kingdom. 

    Deposits and Withdrawals

    FxPro does not charge fees for deposits or withdrawals but you will be subject to fees from your banking institution. Also, for electronic wallets, FxPro may charge fees for withdrawals if you have not executed a trade. 

    FxPro Review: Payment Methods

    FxPro accepts the following payment methods: bank transfer, Neteller, Skrill, credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal. 

    Having said that, the time it takes for international bank transfers to appear in your FXPro wallet varies depending on your bank, usually ranging from 3 to 5 business days. On the other hand, local and SEPA transfers usually show up on the very same business day.

    Other payment methods take approximately 10 minutes to show in the FxPro wallet. 

    It’s important to note that you can choose to send your deposit directly to your trading account or FxPro wallet. 

    Keep in mind that every transaction is placed via the FxPro wallet so currency conversions might apply when you transfer directly to a trading account in a different currency to your FxPro wallet. 

    Here’s how to make a deposit:

    • Log into your FxPro Direct account with your email and password
    • Launch the Wallet section and hit the Deposit button 
    • Next, you can choose from a selection of payment methods available in your region. Keep in mind that all deposits and withdrawals are processed with zero commissions from FxPro
    • Pick the method and choose the amount you intend to deposit. Next, fill up payment details and follow the on-screen prompts to finalize the transaction
    • Once your deposit has been approved it will show up in your FxPro wallet balance or the trading account chosen 

    You’ll be able to find details of a transaction in your Transaction History. 

    That’s it! You can begin trading cryptocurrency CFDs and more.
