As regard to all of the outstanding positions at GMT22:00 (Japanese time at 7:00), Astar Prime will not close at the end-of-day and reopen on the following trading day, but will book the swap point to the customer's account, according to the current interest. Please note that the rollovers will be pursued at New York Market's closing time.

Since Foreign Exchange Markets are closed on the weekends, there will be no rollovers during that time, however, please note that banks calculate the interests of the positions held, therefore, Astar Prime will book the amount for those three days on Wednesdays. For Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, it will be booked once a day.

Nowadays, many people are interested in Swap Managements with such high interest rate currencies where they can save the SWAP points. However, we advise you to pursue an adequate trade since swap point may fluctuate depeding upon each countries' interest standard or balance may reverse.
