The financing charge for Rolling Spot FX reflects the relative interest rates of the two currencies comprising your open trade plus a premium dependant on market conditions and including an LMAX Global charge. When a position is held overnight, LMAX Global will apply a financing entry to your account. This may be a debit or a credit entry depending on the contributing factors outlined above, namely relative interest rates and LMAX Global premium.

The cost of the tomorrow next roll (tom/next) is applied to positions held through the respective market close. The opening price on your position is not adjusted, rather a separate financing charge is levied to your account. Positions rolled over the weekend or over bank holidays will reflect the longer duration of the underlying wholesale rolling trades. (Example available on request).
