    Hey.
    "Commission for the account"? What's that? Demo is virtual money, there are no commission.
    What you are doing wrong is that you are a beginner who can't read the charts properly. Start
    learning technical analysis!

    Ok, that's the remainder of the payout, it's just that the broker uses the word commission. I have never seen a broker call that commission but I suppose it could be called a commission. But you aren't actually paying anything, you make a trade say 100 bucks investment and the payout is 85% and that's the end of the story. Or you could view it as actually a payout of 100% but minus the 15% commission which would be the same thing as getting 85% return. So as I said, just a very unusual and strange way of the broker to mention "commission".
    Which broker is that?

    Is that a Forex broker? I was talking about binary options.
    If you are talking about forex then yeah, they will charge you commissions on trades!
    You need to sit down and read the terms and conditions and about fees and commissions.
    Anyway this is a binary options forum.
