AAX trading fees follow a tiered structure: the more you trade, the lower your fees. This holds true whether you trade cryptocurrency or futures. You can get an additional 20% off your trading fees by buying and holding AAB, the AAX token. For simplicity, the fees published on this page don't include any discounts.
Like most exchanges, AAX charges "maker fees" and "taker fees". Taker fees apply when your order takes liquidity away from the market, as is the case with market orders. Maker fees apply when your order adds liquidity, as is the case with limit orders.
Margin Trading Fees
Use up to 100x leverage when you trade cryptocurrency futures on AAX. No leverage is available in the spot market.
The funding rate determines whether you’ll pay or receive interest when you trade futures. When the funding rate is positive, traders with long positions pay those with short positions a premium. The opposite is true when the funding rate becomes negative.
The funding rate tends to reflect overall market sentiment. It is positive when most market participants expect prices to rise in the near future, and can stay elevated for days on end when the market is in an uptrend. Conversely, it is negative when traders have a negative outlook. You'll find historical funding rates on AAX.com.
AAX updates the funding rate 3 times a day, every 8 hours. Of note, you'll neither pay nor receive interest if you open and close your position before the rate is updated. The funding rate is paid peer-to-peer between traders. AAX charges no additional fees.
