When entering a trade there are times when I am charged non standard brokerage. What should I do?

I notice that when I select my broker when entering my trade I cannot edit the figure to reflect the non-standard brokerage? In this case simply enter the trade details and select the applicable broker as you normally would for a standard trade. When you have saved your trade you can utilise the “Edit Trade” feature by right-clicking on the trade in the View Trades view. In the Opening Trade details section that appears on the right of the Edit Trade view you can modify the brokerage field values as appropriate. Remember to enter in the correct figures for the three fields relevant to Brokerage and OCH Fees.
