Straightforward, transparent pricing

When you trade with a DMA account, you'll pay no City Index spread. In addition, you'll benefit from volume discounts the more you trade.

We charge you a standard commission and you’ll earn discounted commissions based on your trading volume. The more you trade, the deeper the discount the following month – see an example.

Trading DMA

Our forex DMA dealing ticket is designed to provide traders with greater visibility into the Forex market.

Typically only available to institutional traders, City Index’s DMA account gives you access to multiple levels of liquidity displayed in real time. You’ll view pricing available on either side of our order book and have the ability to place orders within the top of book spreads.

Keep in mind, this doesn't necessarily mean that the top-of-book prices will always be better than our standard pricing as factors such as size of trade and time of day can impact the tightness of the bid/ask spread.
