Counting the Cost: How Many Days Interest on Forex Open Positions- Jan 2024



Find below the table that shows the number of days' worth of overnight funding fees you will be charged if you keep a Forex position open on a particular day. The overnight funding fee is the cost of holding a position overnight through 10 PM UK time, and it is charged at the end of each trading day. This fee is calculated based on the size of your position and the interest rate differential between the two currencies involved in the trade plus the IG admin fee.

To help you manage your trading costs and make informed decisions, we have created this table that displays the number of days' worth of overnight funding fee you will be charged. This information can be used to estimate the cost of holding a position over a certain period and to decide whether to keep it open or close it before the end of the trading day. In the future, we will regularly publish this table at the start of each new month.


Please note that in some cases, the number of days may change due to public holidays or bank holidays. We will do our best to inform you of any changes as soon as possible, but we recommend that you keep an eye on the holiday calendar to avoid any surprises.
