In the spot forex market, trades must be settled in two business days. For example, if a trader sells 100,000 Euros on Tuesday, then the trader must deliver 100,000 Euros on Thursday, unless the position is rolled over. As a service to customers, forex brokers will automatically process open forex positions at the end of the day to the next settlement date. This process is referred to as end-of-day rollover.

The rollover rate, also referred to as “swap” or “interest” rate, is simply the cost-of-carry that is applied to your account on a day-to-day basis.
Where can I find FOREX.com's rollover rates?

Rollover rates are accessible directly from the FOREXTrader PRO and MetaTrader trading platforms. Today's rates are usually available by 12:00 pm ET and reflect the rates for the current trading day. The amount shown is denominated in the base currency of the account. You may also view rollover rates directly on our website.
Rollover rates are determined based on the interest rate differential of the two currencies and the spot price. At FOREX.com, we keep your rollover costs as low as possible when you pay on the rollover, and maximize your credit when you earn on the rollover. We provide you our best available interbank rollover rate, with no additional mark up or financing charge. Unlike some brokers, FOREX.com will never apply a negative rollover on both sides (Long/Short). Customers will always have the ability to earn interest on every currency pair.
Rollovers are processed at 5:00pm ET, at which time any open positions will be rolled and a debit or credit applied to your account.
At FOREX.com, no interest is paid or received if you open and close a position in the same trading day.
Some brokers will apply rollovers on a second by second basis; however this policy can ultimately end up costing you more money in transaction costs in the form of rollover charges.
