Deposit and Withdrawal Options:

Exness does provide a lot of platform for depositing funds through along with that no platform has any fees or charge. To deposit funds, you have to click on deposit option which is available on the dashboard left side. The options which Exness provide to deposit are as follows:

Even, they have introduced the feature of UPI as well which is currently the most trending way to transfer funds. While using this broker even I have used UPI platform to deposit my funds with. It is simple to do so and once the transaction is complete the funds are instantly credited to your account. Moreover, the broker doesn’t charge any fees on deposit as well as withdrawal.

For withdrawing funds also, the broker provides several platforms as mentioned below:

But remember one thing while depositing and withdrawing funds, use the same platform always to remove discrepancy otherwise you might face issue, for me as I have deposited funds using UPI so for withdrawing funds, I must opt for bank transfer so that the funds are directly transferred to my bank account. But one thing which I find is a lack point with this broker is that once you place withdrawal request your funds will take 24 to 48 hours to credit back to your account which is a lot of time, meaning in urgency of the funds you might not be able to get funds in instant.

in the below table the average spread for 10 different currencies is shown:

CurrencyStandardStandard CentProRaw SpreadZero
XAUUSD372354210127.320

GBPJPY201912.64.80
EURJPY191913.7540.1
NZDUSD202012.550

As from my analysis, spread is quite low for different accounts, and thus it is good platform to trade with.

Commissions:

Exness broker only charge commission on two types of account first, Zero Spread Account and second, Raw Spread Account.

In the below table the commission comparison for the Zero Spread account is shown:

In Zero Spread Account all the currency has different commission values.
Now let’s have a look for raw spread account commission table. As the name suggests the commission is fixed or you can say raw for every type of currency.

                                                                                 Raw Spread Account

Here, I want to mention it again that the commission is charged for a round trip meaning both opening and closing of that bid. For example, if you are opening EURUSD for buy position in raw account, lot size of the bid is 1 then the commission will be $ 3.5 + $ 3.5 = $7, the reason I am clarifying this is because on the website of broker it is not clearly written they only state the commission for 1 side.

Swap:

There are two types of swap, swap short and swap long which are charged by the broker if the trade is open for more than a day.

Let’s have a look for the swap short values of different types of accounts.
