How is swap calculated?
Swap is calculated by taking the difference between the respective interest rates in the currency pair being traded and adding FxPro's commission fee for rolling over the position to the next trading day. The result can either be positive or negative depending on the instrument.
Swap is calculated from Monday to Friday at 22:00 UK time. The figure is calculated at triple rate on Friday to account for the weekends, when swap is still applied, even though banks and markets are closed.
Swap fee for FX= Pip value X swap value in points] / 10
Swap fee for Non-FX instruments= Lot size X Swap Value X Number of nights.
