When are swaps charged at a triple rate for currency pairs and metals?
From Wednesday to Thursday swaps are charged at a triple rate – this is a standard in the forex industry. A triple swap is charged only for the positions that are held (or opened) on Wednesday and are kept overnight, and this swap covers the interest for Saturday and Sunday as well. All swaps are calculated based on the second currency. 1 pip value for 1 lot on EURUSD is 10 USD, GBPUSD – 10 USD, EURAUD – 10 AUD, EURJPY – 1000 Yen.
Please check our swap rates here: https://tickmill.com/accounts/types/ecn-pro/
If you open a long position of 1 lot on EURAUD, the overnight swap is -4.27 points or -4.27 Australian dollars. If you open a long position of 0.4 lots on EURAUD, the swap would be -1.71 Australian dollars. Now, if we triple the swap on a long 0.4 lot position on EURAUD, then the swap would be -5.13 Australian dollars. If the account base currency is USD, then this -5.13 AUD is converted into USD with the spot rate.
