Titan FX constantly reviews our swap rates and those of our competitors to ensure we are best in market.

All traders should be aware of swap rates on the instruments they are trading, especially traders who hold open positions beyond the end of the trading day. Several trading strategies such as ‘carry’ trading actually make use of rollover to profit from the interest rate difference between currencies.

  • forex swap/rollover charges are determined by the overnight interest rate differential between the two currencies involved in the pair and whether the position is a buy ‘long’ or sell ‘short’
  • index CFD swaps relates to the interest rate of the base currency of the associated index (eg. GBP for FTSE100)
  • commodity CFD (energy and precious metals) swaps are a composite of different factors that relate to the holding cost of the commodity

Swap is payable on all Titan FX live accounts. It can introduce complexity to your trading strategy, especially if it involves holding positions for long periods of time.

Swaps can affect your results both positively and negatively. Keep these points in mind:

  • Swaps are applied to your trading account only when positions are kept open until the next trading day
  • Swaps are applied during the end of day rollover period, which occurs between 23:59 - 00:01 server time
  • Some instruments may have negative swap rates on both sides, both ‘long’ and ‘short’
  • Swap rates are calculated in points, MT4 and MT5 convert them automatically into the base currency of the account
  • Each instrument has its own swap charge
  • Swap is measured on a standard size of 1.0 standard lots (100,000 base units for forex pairs, check in MT4 or MT5 for other instrument lot sizes)
  • Swaps are calculated and applied every trading night. To compensate for the market being closed on the weekend, swaps are charged at triple the rate on Wednesdays in forex and metals and triple the rate on Fridays in energy (oil) and other CFDs
