Rollover rate refers to the interest rate differential between two currencies of a currency pair that is bought or sold. If the interest rate on the currency you bought is higher than the interest rate of the currency you sold, you will earn the interest differential (i.e., rollover). Conversely, if the interest rate on the currency you bought is lower than the interest rate on the currency you sold, then you will pay the rollover amount.
Rollover occurs when positions are held overnight through Trading Close. Open positions are automatically rolled over every trading day at 6:00 a.m. Hong Kong Time (i.e., 5:00 a.m. during New York Summer Time period) to prevent physical settlement. The realised rollover amount will be settled (i.e., subtracted or added to the account balance and available for withdrawal (positive rollovers only) on the next business day after Trading Close (i.e., T+1).
For open positions held overnight through Wednesday's Trading Close, "3-Day" rollover will be realised in order to account for settlement of trades through the weekend period. For any position held overnight through Friday’s Trading Close and closed on the following Monday, "1-Day" rollover will be realised.
*The rollover rate as shown above is merely indicative.
