Single Stock Overnight Swap Rates

As with forex transactions, all Single Stock CfDs are subject to overnight financing. Intraday positions incur no charges.

Through these overnight charges, we also allow for any corporate action resulting in funds being transferred to shareholders; exchange offers or bonus offers etc.

Therefore, in the event that a single stock you hold – therefore you are long - issues a dividend payment and you have held this position overnight, you will receive this dividend in the form of an adjustment to the SWAP. Conversely, a short position will be charged this through the overnight SWAP.

Due to the fact that you have entered into an Index CfD which consists of many underlying stocks, you may see frequent changes to the SWAP during times of corporate announcements.

Triple SWAPS are applied on Wednesday for all Stock CfDs.

Please refer to the LMFX website for the corresponding SWAP rates.
