Interest Formula of Gold, SILVER = Contract price x quantity per contract x interest rate x number of contracts x overnight days of unsettled orders / 360 days
A client bought 2 contracts of Gold at the price of 1250 and settled the order 1day later.
The interest of buying Gold was -3.75% and the contract price was 1250.
1250 × 100 × ( - 3.75%) × 2 × 1 ÷ 360 = -US$ 26.04 (Interest payable by client)
A client sold 2 contracts of Gold at the price of 1250 and settled the order 1day later.
