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.

    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
    • I've been awake for too long, my brain isn't working properly, I need to be 'zapped' into unconsciousness.
