Swaps

What is a swap rate?

Swap rates determine the cost/payment for holding a position overnight. This occurs at daily trading cutting time, on any trades held to this point. A swap amount is determined based on the interest rates of the countries involved in each currency pair and whether your position is short or long. Basically in any one currency pair, the interest is paid on the currency sold and received on the currency bought. (It depends on market interest rate thus it is not always applicable.)

In any currency pair:

  • A currency swap is the exchange of interest payments in one currency for the interest payments in the paired currency.
  • An interest rate swap is the exchange of a floating interest rate for a fixed rate.
  • Swaps rates offered by financial institutions are calculated on both a risk management analysis and market conditions. Each institution has its own currency exchange rate swaps, which measure the standard size as 1 lot (trading volume 1 standard lot).
