Frequently Asked Questions
What is rollover?
A rollover (also known as a financing charge or swap rate) is the simultaneous closing of an open position for today's value date and the opening of the same position for the next day's value date at a price reflecting the interest rate differential between the two currencies.

How are rollovers determined?
Rollover rates are based on the interest rate differential of the two currencies and the spot price. However, rollover rates can be impacted by market conditions, especially at the end of a quarter or year. We periodically review our rollover rates and adjust them to fit with current market and industry conditions.
To learn more about factors that impact currency markets, read our 'Key factors that affect the forex markets' page.
When is rollover applied?
At FOREX.com, rollovers are processed daily at 5:00pm ET, at which time any open positions will be rolled and a debit or credit applied to your account. We do not charge rollover on intraday trades.
Visit our market trading hours page for the latest trading hours on every market that may be affected by public holidays.
Can I avoid paying rollover?
At FOREX.com, rollovers are not applied to intraday trades. No interest is paid or received if you open and close a position within the same trading day after 5pm ET and before 5pm ET the following day. Other brokers may apply rollovers on a continuous, second-by-second basis. This policy may ultimately end up raising your total trading costs, especially if the broker's rollovers are not competitive.

It's important for traders to be aware of the unique characteristics and risks associated with trading Turkish Lira (TRY) pairs such as EURTRY, USDTRY, and TRYJPY due to the high volatility of the currency.
One crucial aspect traders should consider is the swap rates. A swap rate is the interest rate differential between the two currencies in a currency pair and is applied when holding positions overnight. Depending on the prevailing interest rates in Turkey and the other currency's country, traders may either receive or pay swap fees* when holding LONG or SHORT positions in TRY pairs overnight.
However, the high volatility in TRY pairs can result in larger and more frequent swings in the interest rate differential, leading to situations where traders may need to pay swap fees instead of receiving them.
Please note that market conditions, economic factors, and geopolitical events can impact all currency pairs to varying degrees, and each pair comes with its unique set of risks.
*The swap fee is called Financing (Forex.com Platforms), and Swaps (MetaTrader Platforms) on the customer statements.
