Positions held overnight in Listed Futures, CFD Futures, and short Listed Options will be subject to a carrying cost.
The carrying cost is calculated on the basis of the daily margin requirement and applied when a position is held overnight. It is charged at the end of each month.
For Futures the funding rate used for calculating the carrying cost is based on the relevant Interbank-rate + markup at: 2.5% (classic accounts), 1.5% (platinum accounts), or 0.5% (VIP accounts).
For short Listed Options the funding rate used for calculating the carrying cost is based on the relevant Interbank-rate + markup at 1.5%.
Carrying Cost = Margin requirement * Days held * (Relevant Interbank rate + Markup) / (365 or 360 days)
Please note that relevant benchmark rates are floored at 0%.
