Roll Over

  1. Coming form an equity market, I have never heard of this term.

    Is there a disadvantage that comes with 'roll over' when trading forex ?

    I am doing a demo, and I just learned about this new buzz word.

    I am willing to risk few pips in loss...but I am not shure how the roll over will affect me.

    I am googling this term...but I like elite traders way of explaining things.

    as an example lets say I am long eur 1.2234 , and short euro 1.2231, and heeere comes roll-over.

    Now what ?
  2. Some brokers pay/deduct the "interest earned or payed" per minute or hourly, and simply add it or deduct it to your balance, without it affecting your open position (s), when you close it intraday or... daily at a certain time, if you "hold over" and did not daytrade it.
