Rollover Rates

Rollovers are typically the interest charged or earned for holding positions overnight. We strive to keep your trading costs low by sourcing institutional rollover rates and pass them to you at a competitive price.

You can earn or pay when a rollover is applied to your position

Rollovers are only applied to open trades at 5pm ET

Other brokers may calculate rolls continuously, raising your trading costs

USD/RUB and EUR/RUB are currently unavailable for trading. See service updates.

Rollover rates displayed are based on a 10K position and estimated based on the previous rollover rate and number of days being rolled. For example, typically Wednesdays are rolled for three days to account for the weekend. Rollovers also may vary due to month end or holidays.

How is my spread cost calculated?

In typical market conditions, this is the difference between the rate at which your order was executed, and the mid-point of the bid/offer spread at the time your market order was received. Keep in mind that pending orders become market orders once they are triggered. Mid-point spread cost typically reflects the cost of your trade outside of any commissions.

During extreme market conditions, the time period when a market order is received versus when the order is ultimately executed may increase. This increase in time period can result from many factors including but not limited to market volatility, available liquidity, pre-trade available margin check, price validation, etc.

The potential delay in order execution during extreme market conditions may cause wide variations of your spread cost at the time of execution, measured as the difference between bid/offer versus the mid-point at time of execution. For example, these variations may result in a smaller than normal cost figure, or even a positive cost figure, in the case of limit orders filled at a better rate than the rate at which your limit was triggered.

Conversely, these variances may reflect a larger than normal cost if your stop order rate was executed worse than the rate at which it was ultimately triggered. As noted above, these variations can result from many factors.

Is there a currency conversion charge?

Trading in markets that settle in a different currency from your trading account's base currency may incur a currency conversion charge.

For example, if your trading account base currency is US Dollars and you trade USD/JPY, your realized profit or loss as well as any associated fees, charges, and commissions will be automatically converted from JPY back to US Dollars before posting to your trading account.

Our standard charge for this conversion is +/-0.5% from the market rate at the time of conversion. Conversely, you will not incur this charge if you only trade products that settle in your account’s base currency, such as EUR/USD in a US Dollar based account.
