Oil overnight swap rates

Recommended Posts

I kept a buy position on USOIL - the lot size was 0.25.

Next day I find a charge of around 25 USD as interest. That is too much. I have seen recently that interests on other pairs have also been skewed against me.

Is this normal? Other brokers are offering better interest rates.

hi, you may have missed the date of the post you are relying to, end of March the swap rate was extraordinarily high for all brokers, for today's rate  see the daily dashboard thread.

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.    
    • No the share dealing account is subject to tax. You will need to make a seperate application for an ISA and it will appear.
    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
