Online brokerage kabu.com Securities Co. said Tuesday it will lower its fees for margin trading on Oct. 1, almost halving fees for trading value worth up to 500,000 yen.

The brokerage currently bundles margin buying and margin selling as one transaction, but it plans to charge separately for them.
