How can I fund my account?

You can add funds using a bank transfer. In order to do so, please supply your bank with Sonaf's bank details which were communicated to you upon the opening of your account.

How much do I need in my account to trade with Sonaf?

At Sonaf all FX daily rolling bets are automatically rolled every evening at 20:00 (London Time).

Rolling over a spot FX bet involves the closing of the bet for that day and the re-opening of a new position for the next trading day. The overnight charge (known as Tom Next) plus a Sonaf admin charge is applied to the account the following business day and appears as a cash ledger credit or debit.

For example:

- Client buys ( goes long ) GBP/USD 1 GBP per point at a price of 1.6000.
- Assume UK Base rates are currently 2% with US rates at 1%.
- Hypothetically the position should earn 1% (+ 2% on the GBP holding minus 1% on the USD).
- GBPUSD Tom Next = short -0.7 ; long -0.6
- Client closes GBPUSD position at 1.6000 Having bought (gone 'Long') GBPUSD the charge would be calculated thus;
Long GBPUSD Tom Next + Sonaf admin charge
-0.6 + 0.88 = 0.28

In this example the client would pay 0.28 pips, which when multiplied by the stake would pay 0.28 GBP for a single night roll. Over a weekend clients are charged/credited for each day they hold the position (3 days) but will only incur one Sonaf admin charge.

Should you require any further information please contact your account manager.
