    Which brokers besides Oanda do not pay/charge triple interest on Wednesday?


  2. None spring to mind but I'm intrigued to know why you want one :)

    If you're after a broker who doesn't pay/charge interest at all then try looking to see if they have a Muslim account, not sure how they work it out but it's worth a look.

    Thanks for the reply. I had an idea, but I just found a flaw in the logic, so nevermind.

  4. Triple interest Wednesday? What?

    Is that like a radio station playing "double shot Tuesday"?

    Does such a thing exist?
  5. Its the standard settlement procedure in FX. Google 'Tomorrow Next' for details. Because of the weekend, you will pay/recieve 3 times the swap on wed.
  6. Ah, Oanda pays on the weekend.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was under the impression that Islamic banks still had a procedure similar to interest, they just called it by a different name... I know several like that. But maybe others are not?
  8. This should, in theory, be exploitable - if you have a broker with very competitive spreads and rolls. If you open a hedged trade (int negative on Oanda, int positive on the other broker) just for the rolling period for wed, you get 3 days worth of interest and pay negative swap for 30 minutes or so on Oanda (since Oanda calculates interest on a per second basis). Question would be if the interest can overcome the spread-costs and/or commissions. There probably would't be much love from Oanda either if this would be done with big size.

    The interest isn't enough to overcome the spread on both sides unfortunately.

  10. I think I read somewhere there are still a few left who don't pay/charge, don't know who though.
