Fineco Bank positions itself as a low-cost high value bank. It offers currency trading in the local currency so there are no exchange fees, just spread fees. The specific fees and commissions paid are related to the type of asset that is traded. 

The most competitive fees are on the major pairs such as the EUR/USD which start at 0.8 pips. Although you can get better spreads from other brokers, its important to point out that there are no additional fees to pay. 

Fineco Bank does not add any mark up to its stock CFD spreads too, so you can be confident that you are getting the market price. 

Indices CFD's offer the most competitive spreads around, offering 0.4 pips on the S&P 500 and 0.6 pips on the FTSE 100 and NASDAQ. 

When it comes to share dealing and ETF dealing Fineco Bank are probably the cheapest we have found. For shares and ETF's listed on the London Stock Exchange the fee is £2.95 per trade.
