Positive Interest Carry Systems The power of Compounding and the daily injection of interest for carrying Retail Spot Forex pairs in their positive interest earning direction, must not be overlooked. Here is what investopedia says: A strategy of holding two offsetting positions, one of which creates an incoming cashflow that is greater than the obligations of the other. Similar to arbitrage, positive carries generally occur in the currency market where interest paid to investors in one currency is more than they have to pay to borrow in another currency. Another example of a positive carry would be borrowing $1000 from the bank at 5% and investing it into a bond paying 6%. Thus, the coupon on the bond would pay more than the interest owing on the loan to the bank, and you pocket the 1% difference. Now, combining some grid trading together with carry interest is wonderful in Retail Spot Forex. I call it TradeVesting. Michael B.
