Market Orders

Certain exchanges do not support Market orders.  If a client places a market order in these markets, DNB Trade will automatically convert the order to an aggressive Limit order within a certain percentage limit “in the money”. 

The Percentage Limit varies between 1% and 4% depending on the exchange and the type of instrument. Please note that it is a client’s responsibility to check if the order is filled in the market after order entry.

If you experience or suspect any errors with your order, you should contact DNB Bank immediately.

NYSE MKT (AMEX – American Stock Exchange)
London International Exchnage (LSE_INTL)
London Stock Exchange (LSE_SETS)
Oslo Børs/Oslo Stock Exchange (OSE)
NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen (CSE)
NASDAQ OMX Stockholm (SSE)

In addition, some of our execution brokers may choose to convert Market orders on certain exchanges into aggressive limit orders 3% “in the money”. This is due to their internal compliance and is intended to protect clients from unintentionally moving the market.

DNB Bankas will not be responsible for missing fills due to this.

Split Orders

In case an order regarding a security is split, and filled partially over a period of more than one day, the total trading costs may increase. The reason for such increase is that the minimum fee may be charged more than one time based on the number of days necessary for the total execution of the order.

Dividends from stock positions

Dividend payments from stock positions will be credited to the clients account with any applicable standard withholding taxes deducted.

DNB Bank cannot currently support or offer preferential withholding tax rates that may be available due to residency or legal status. Only exception is securities issued by USA companies, see more here.

Use Stocks investment as collateral for margin trading

DNB Trade allows a percentage of the collateral invested in certain stocks to be used for margin trading activities

The collateral value of a stock position depends on the rating of the individual stock - please see conversion table below.

Collateral value of stock position
2 50%
3 0%
4 0%
5 0%

Example: 50% of the value of a position in a Stock with Rating 2 can be used as collateral (instead of cash) to trade margin products such as Forex, CFDs, Futures and Options.

Please note that DNB Bankas reserves the right to decrease or remove the use of Stock investment as collateral for large position sizes, or stock portfolios considered to be of very high risk.

Stocks placed as collateral for margin trading can not be used to cover the realized or unrealized loss.
