Competitive Roll-Over Fees
Swap rates are the interest rate that can be added or deducted for holding an open trading position overnight. They are determined by the difference between the two currencies, whether the position is long or short and can either be positive or negative.
At M4Markets our swap rates are competitive and we are transparent about how they are applied to your account. Each currency pair has its own rollover fee which is never fixed and is applied directly on your account via your chosen Metatrader platform.

HOW YOU CAN CALCULATE YOUR SWAPS
To calculate the cost or gain from maintaining your trading position open overnight, you will need to use the next day’s rate difference between the two currencies and add our small admin fee.
The calculation is done in points of the quote currency and is automatically translated to funds in your account.
Example: You hold one short EUR/USD position overnight.
EUR/USD rate on the next day is -2.12
Overnight fee = -2.12*1=$-2.12
