So as the title says.
For example, crude oil gets you +$0.13 per unit for your short position. At first I thought that I just misunderstood the fee system, so I opened a crude oil short (btw, that turned out to be horrible timing), and yup, I got a few dollar credited to my account.
Why would they do that? They have a spread on oil, so they're making money, but I don't get why they would actually pay money for open positions.
