Does Plus500 charge an overnight fee?
The overnight funding amount is either added to or subtracted from your account whenever a position is left open after a certain cut-off time (the “Overnight Funding Time”). The formula used to calculate the daily overnight funding amount of a position is: Trade Size * Position Opening Rate * Point Value * Daily Overnight Funding % When trading Share CFDs, the formula will be: Trade size * Daily Close Rate * Point Value * Daily Overnight Funding %, where the Daily Close Rate is the average [(Buy+Sell)/2] of the last quote 30 minutes before the Overnight Funding time (e.g. if the Overnight Funding time is 22h, we will take the last quote before or at 21:30h). The overnight funding time and the daily overnight funding percentage can be found in the “Details” link next to the instrument’s name in the main screen of the trading platform.
