Rollover
A rollover is the simultaneous closing of an open position from an expiring contract to the next valid contract. For FX this could be tom-next, closing a position expiring tomorrow and opening a new position on the t+2 spot date. For FX CFDs this would be closing our contract expiring at 5pm NY and moving to the new daily price. The rollover adjustment is the accounting of the cost-of-carry on a day-to-day basis. For futures it is closing a position in the expiring future and opening a position up in the next liquid future we quote. The price difference is the difference between the two futures contracts.
