What are Stake’s funding fees?

Fees & Speeds

You can also find a copy of your charges through any trade/deposit confirmation email or via the Stake platform.

You can choose the speed of your deposits and currency-to-currency transfers from within your Stake account. Below you will find settlement timeframes for each speed:

  • Regular: funds are credited to your Wall St account T+1 (this means 1 business day later) after Stake receives confirmation of an initiated deposit/transfer. 

  • Instant: funds are instantly credited (as buying power) to your Wall St account after Stake receives confirmation of an initiated deposit/transfer. There is a 0.5% surcharge for this method. 

Please note that while these funds are available to trade instantly until they settle, they won’t be available to withdraw, or count towards your balance for the purpose of Pattern Day Trading exemptions.
