  • Swap is an amount paid or earned as a result of the differential interest rates applicable to currency pairs when a trader holds a position over night. Swap rates are calculated on daily basic at 4:59 PM/ET. 
  • To be subjected to swap, trade position must have been opened before 4:59 PM/ET and held open past this time.
