The Spread is the difference between Bid Price and Ask Price quoted for an instrument. For example, when the Ask Price (or Buy Price) is 1.14345, the Bid Price (or Sell Price) is 1.14347, the spread will be 0.00002 (1.14347 – 1.14345). The spread is one of the key costs involved in investment products. Tighter spread will always give investors better value.
Commission is another potential cost that clients should consider. A fixed amount of commission will be charged to your account upon execution of any order for some instruments on our platform.

The Swap is the interest paid or earned for holding a position overnight. Each investment product has an interest rate associated with it, and every trade involves two different interest rates. The Swap can add a significant extra cost or profit to your trade. The trading platform automatically calculates Swaps for you.
22:00 GMT(+1) is considered to be the beginning and the end of a trading day. Any positions which are still open at 22:00 GMT(+1) are subject to rollover. Rollover is the process of the settlement of an open position overnight.
There is no settlement on Saturdays and Sundays when the markets are closed, but banks still calculate interest on any position held over the weekend. For this reason, a 3-day swap applies on Wednesdays or Fridays.
BCR offers a transparent Swap Rate based on current interest rate. To view BCR Swap Rates, please log in to your MT4 account.
The formula used to calculate the swap charge depends on the CFD instrument you are trading.
Forex, Metals, Commodities, Indices: Pip Value * Swap Rate * Trade lots * Number of days held overnight.
For Example: If you BUY 1.00 lot of EURUSD and hold it overnight for one day with a long rollover of 6.11 Points, then the swap charge would be 1.46 USD (AUDUSD@0.68420) * 6.11 Points * 1.00 * 1 = 8.93 USD.
For Example: If you SELL 1.00 lot of USDJPY and hold it overnight for one day with a short rollover of -16.88 Points, then the swap charge would be 1.05 USD (AUDJPY@95.108) * -16.88 Points * 1.00 * 1 = -17.75 USD.
Shares: Open price * Contract size * Annual Swap Rate / 360 * Trade lots * Number of days held overnight ( * or / ) Fx Rate.
For Example: If you BUY 1.00 lot of AAPL at $188.00 and hold it overnight for one day with annual swap rate of -15%, the charge would be $188 * 100 * -15% / 360 * 1.00 * 1 / 0.68420 = 11.44 USD.
For Example: If you SELL 1.00 lot of DIS at $88.00 and hold it overnight for one day with annual swap rate of -15%, the charge would be $88 * 100 * -15% / 360 * 1.00 * 1 / 0.68420 = 5.36 USD.
How are the Swap Rates determined?
The swap rate depends on a range of factors, including the market interest rates of the two currencies, broker fees, short-term/forward market conditions, etc.
Swap-Free Accounts incur no swaps or interest charges on overnight positions. Instead, the account holder is charged an administration fee that is deducted from the balance of the account.
If a Swap-Free Account holds positions after the end of the Friday trading day, then a fee will be deducted from the balance of the account. Please note, some products may be subject to adjustment fees without notice.
