Daily FX interest? Double counted?


What is daily FX interest and why does it overlap - ie I had a 11 day daily FX interest  TYPE: WITH and then daily interest each day for the past 11 days!

Is this not double counting the carry?

I also found similar problem, my USDJPY position I hold only one day but it charged me 11 days.

@loke1996 & @chantellouise,  hopefully someone from IG will comment but this one comes around every year at this time. During Japan's 'Golden Week' holiday JPY banks do not exchange (as at weekends), this year is exacerbated by the crowning of the new Emperor causing a 10 day shutdown. There are threads on the forum from years past with more specific info but a quick search didn't find them, I'll look again when I have more time.

Hi @loke1996 and @chantellouise,


as @Caseynotes has pointed out, this is due to Japan's Golden Week and new EMperor Crowning where markets will be closed for 10 days, which means that all JPY crosses were charged 11 days of overnight funding on Wednesday  (charged on Tuesday for AUDJPY and NZDJPY due to ANZAC holiday).

    • “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.
