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.

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
