What are FOREX Swap Rates?
The swap charges in forex or rollover interest rates is the net interest return that a trader accumulates on a currency position held overnight. This fee is charged when the trader borrows one currency to buy another, as part of forex trading.
For instance, if you are buying EUR/USD, you might borrow in US Dollars and buy Euros with the amount. In doing so, you will need to pay interest on the borrowed US Dollars and earn interest on the Euros you bought.
