CFD Indices and Oil swap calculations follows:

Lots x Swap Long or Short in Margin Currency


Note
: the swap for CFD Indices represents a currency value according to the margin currency of the CFD Index in question. As an example, if you have a short position of 2 lots (2 contracts) of US500 and the swap (which is in fact a combination of financing fees + dividends) is -0.13 then:

2 lots x -0.13 USD = -0.26 USD.


This will also be converted into your account currency automatically.
 

Notetriple swap charge takes place on Friday for CFD Indices and Energies in MT4. The dividend component in the swap is not tripled, only the financing fee.
