Spreads: the spreads indicated are minimum spreads and depend on the spread of the underlying futures contract. If the underlying future trades at a spread that is larger than the minimum spread, the Index spread will be increased with the additional spread from the future. Example: Dax.I normal spread is 1.5 index points if the future spread is 0.5 indicating normal conditions. If the liquidity is low in the future and the spread is 1, the Index spread will be 1.5 + (1 - 0.5) = 2.
Point Value of one contract: this is the currency risk you incur with one Stock Index CFD contract. The increment of risk is also one currency unit (i.e. you can increase your position by increments of one index). There is no minimum commission for Stock Index CFD traders.
Trading hours are stated in the local hours of the underlying exchange - please note that the HSI.I (Hong Kong Index) trading session has a mid-session break between 12:00-13:00 and an evening break between 16:10-17:00, the trading session in NI225.I (Japan 225) has a break between 3:20 pm and 4:15 pm and the ASXSP200.I (Australia 200) there is a break between 16:25 and 17:10.

Commodity CFD Prices
Commodity CFDs are over-the-counter products with a price established by Saxo Bank as the Futures market spread plus a fixed mark-up.
The mark-up can be seen below under Contract Details and is always available in the Trading Conditions in the trading platforms.
When trading Commodity CFDs with Saxo Bank, a commission is not charged, but there is a bid/ask spread included in the price Saxo Bank derives for each CFD.
This derivation means that whilst the CFD prices track the underlying Futures contract they are not exactly the same.
No overnight financing
Trading Commodity CFDs will not incur any overnight financing charges. All costs are factored within the trading spread.
