Easter holidays and FX swaps / overnight funding

Recommended Posts

Please be aware that if you are holding T+2 FX positions past 10pm tomorrow night and T+1 pairs past 10pm Wednesday night (all times GMT), you will be charged/credited 5 days’ worth of funding due to the bank holidays on Friday and Monday across most pairs. (Some crosses will settle on the 2nd so clients will be charged/credited 4 days.)

 

Quarter end swap rates look to be slightly higher than what they normally are for a 5 day period over 29th March-3rd April roll. Notably, if you’re short dollars you’ll be paying more, whilst if you’re long dollars you’ll be receiving more. The rationale for the quarter-end movement remains the same  - it is a reflection of the expected demand for dollars around month-, quarter- and year-end and as such it is very flow driven.

 

All things being equal, the spot rate should adjust to reflect this at 10pm as it did over year end. This is, however out of our control. Please note the moves are nowhere near what we saw over year end, but if you have any questions please just add a comment below.

    • “In France, the government caved to pressure from a doctor who ran his own very small and rapid trial of the drug combined with an antibiotic in 26 people, using methodology that has been seriously criticised. Dr Didier Raoult, a professor of infectious diseases who works at La Timone hospital in Marseille, then declared in a video on YouTube that chloroquine was a cure for Covid-19 and should be used immediately.“ You can hardly call a trial with 26 people statistically significant considering 660k confirmed cases worldwide thus far and 30k deaths.
    • Has anyone noticed the strange behaviour of Bitcoin price at  8pm Friday until 8am Saturday? I'm new so could someone explain the gap in the chart, displayed in the screenshot attached. Some Fridays the chart stops for 12hrs and other Fridays for 7 hours, can you execute trades during these periods,  I thought crypto was 24/7.
    • "BREAKING: French government reverses earlier ban on hydroxychloroquine for treating COVID19 patients in light of successful clinical studies showing significant efficacy against the virus. Hydroxychloroquine may now be prescribed to treat COVID-19 in France."
