A swap in forex refers to the interest that you either earn or pay for a trade that you keep open overnight. Swap short is when you keep a short position open overnight. The swap rate varies for each symbol as it's based on the difference between the interest rates of the central banks of the 2 currencies in the pair. 


The Swap Short fee can be calculated using the following formula: One Point * Trade Size * Swap Short in Points. 

 

Example for EURUSD: 0.00001*100,000*5.9166= 5.9166 USD 

 

This means you would earn $5.9166 in swaps for keeping 1 lot of EURUSD overnight. 

 

One Point = 0.00001 in EURUSD as point is the last digit in the price. 

 

Trade Size = Lots * 100,000(Contract Size) = 100,000 

 

Swap Short in Points = 5.9166 on a Sell position on EURUSD. 

 

You can check the swap values for different instruments in the Symbol properties window on the mobile app. On desktop app right-click on a symbol in the Market Watch window and select "Specification". 

 

Please note that on Wednesday the swap is 3x as its charged for the coming weekend.
