JonJaa

Question

Please confirm/ correct my understanding that follows of the quoted swap bid (swap offer) for CFDs for each forex market: this is the overnight fee in the quote currency if I am long (short) respectively on 1 standard lot of 100,000 units? Also I understand that these figures exclude the IG overnight admin fee? Thanks

Hi @JonJaa,

The daily estimated overnight funding rates for forex (tom-next rate plus our admin fee) and commodities (basis adjustment plus our admin fee) can be viewed in our platform. We call them swap rates.

For short positions we’ll apply the ‘swap bid’ rate, and for long positions we’ll apply the ‘swap offer’ rate.

You can find more details here.

All the best - Arvin

Hi @JonJaa,

After asking IT, unfortunately it seems that it is not possible to access historical swap rates data.

I will raise this point as a feedback to the relevant team to be reviewed.

Thanks very much once again for the follow up @ArvinIG!

Hi Arvin. Thanks very much for your prompt and clear explanation.

Are the historical swap rates perhaps available somewhere, i.e. going back a few years?

Thanks again

Jon

This analysis provides an in-depth look at KO's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on KO's market behavior. KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart The daily chart indicates a clear five-wave move into Intermediate wave (1), which is either completed or near completion as the price has reached the medium level around $65. Traders should watch for signs of a potential top in wave 5, as this could indicate the end of the current bullish phase and the beginning of a corrective phase. KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4H Chart The 4-hour chart shows that a five-wave move can be counted from the bottom of the triangle in wave 4, suggesting that wave 5 might be completed or wave {i} of 5 is completed. This indicates that traders should be cautious of a potential top formation and be prepared for a possible corrective move.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
