What is an Overnight Swap Rate?

A swap rate refers to an overnight charge that is based on the interest rates of the two countries involved in a currency pair. The swap rate is charged exactly at midnight, according to each broker's time server.

Each Forex pair is the subject of different swap charges. These charges are measured on a standard lot size which means 100,000 base units (usually $100,000).

How Overnight Rates Work?

Swap rates can be positive or negative and that depends on the currency pair you have chosen and the direction you trade. If you choose to go long on a currency offering high-interest rate and you trade against a currency offering low-interest rate then the overnight rate is positive. For example, if you go long on AUDUSD, NZDUSD, AUDCHF, NZDJPY you are paid an overnight rate.

Key Points

  1. The swap rate is charged exactly at midnight, according to each broker's time server

  2. The swaps are measured on a standard lot size which means 100,000 base units

  3. Every Wednesday, the swap value is tripled to cover the Saturday's and Sunday's swap charges

  4. The swap values can alter at any time based on new interest rate decisions by central banks

  5. Metals, Energy, Indices and Soft Commodities don't offer interest rates and therefore are the subject of negative swap rates.
