Precious metals rollover/interest policy
If you trade forex on a "spot" basis, all trades settle two business days from inception, as per market convention. The settlement date is referred to as the value date.
Alpari UK offers "rolling spot" forex. This means we don't arrange physical delivery of currencies/precious metals, hence all positions left open from 23:59:45 to 23:59:59 (server time) will be rolled over to a new value date. As a result, positions are subject to a swap charge or credit as specified in the table below.
Note: When you roll an open position from Wednesday to Thursday on trade date basis, Monday of the following week becomes the new value date, not Saturday. Therefore, the rollover charge on a Wednesday evening will be three times the value indicated in the table.
