Our swap rates
What is a swap rate?
A forex swap rate is a rollover interest rate (that's earned or paid) for holding positions overnight in foreign exchange trading. Swap rates are released weekly by the financial institutions we work with and are calculated based on risk-management analysis and market conditions. Each currency pair has its own swap rate and is measured on a standard size of 1.0 lots (100,000 base units).
