In line with our core purpose of providing traders with low cost access to global markets through market leading pricing and execution, we go directly to the interbank market to roll our clients positions, to offer more competitive overnight financing rates.
A swap is interest paid or received for holding a position over rollover/end of day. On a currency pair interest is paid on the currency sold and received on the currency bought. In addition, swap rates are driven by the interbank spread and cross currency basis.
Swap charges are released on a daily basis by financial institutions that we work with. They are calculated based on the charges we incur to roll the positions in the market. The swap charge is measured on a standard size of 1.0 lot.
Keep in mind that Wednesday is a triple swap day for FX pairs. This is due to the markets being closed on Saturday and Sunday.
For the latest swap rates please refer to the table below.
The financing fee is the cost you pay to hold a position on CFD trades.
It helps traders gain access to leveraged products while only having to pay an initial margin to open the position. As such, the financing fee reflects the cost of borrowing or lending the asset(s) which relate to your position(s). In addition, if dividends are paid out on the relevant index, then long positions will receive a positive adjustment, while short positions will receive a negative adjustment.
Please keep in mind that Friday is a triple fee day for CFDs.

The swap rate that we provide to traders on Forex and Metals is determined primarily by the interbank interest rates, taking into account other factors such as the interest rate differential between currencies and liquidity in overnight funding markets.
Global Prime’s Swap rates are derived from the interbank forex market. This enables us to provide extremely competitive swap rates.
Swaps are accumulated by leaving positions open past roll over or 5pm NYC EST/EDT. Swaps will be added/subtracted to open positions, affecting the unrealised net trading profit and loss. Swaps are realised once the positions are closed.
Our swap rates are updated once to twice a week.
We do not provide historical data.
FX: Pip value X Swap rate in points X exchange rate (if different to account currency)
Example: 0.24 lots AUDUSD (pip value = USD$2.40). Swap rate: 8.34.
Calculation: USD$2.40 X 0.834 = USD$2.00 (rounded from USD$2.0016)
CFD: Lot size x Swap fee (charged in underlying product currency/Margin currency)
Example: NAS100, long swap = -0.89
Calculation: 1 lot X 0.89 = USD89 cents
