Position Rollover example


The rollover is the transition of switching from the front month contract that is close to expire, to the next front month contract. Some instruments offered are based on futures contracts which are periodically rolled. The rollover allows the account holder to maintain their current open position into the next month. Accounts that have positions open during the rollover period will receive a credit or debit in the amount equivalent to the associated swap point difference from the expiring months market price to the front months market price.


First example


Position Lot size Expiring price New price Price Difference Point value P/L effect
Long SPX1.00 MT4 lot2359.502369.501010.00 USD100 USD
Short SPX1.00 MT4 lot2359.502369.50-1010.00 USD-100 USD


From the example above, with the long open SPX position, the price difference from the expiring month to the new front month is a gain of 10 points. As the account generated a 100 USD (10 points x 10.00 USD) increase in value due to the new front month prices, the account will incur a negative rollover amount of 100 USD to offset the balance increase cause by the change in the front month. The short open SPX position would incur a 100 USD negative amount to the account an therefore will have a positive 100 US rollover to offset the balance decrease caused by the change in the front month.


Second example


Position Lot size Expiring price New price Price Difference Point value P/L effect
Long DAX1.00 MT4 lot12232.5012292.506010.00 EUR600 EUR
Short DAX1.00 MT4 lot12232.5012292.50-6010.00 EUR-600 EUR


From the example above, with the long open DAX position, the price difference from the expiring month to the new front month is a gain of 60 points. As the account generated a 600 EUR (60 points x 10.00 EUR) increase in value due to the new front month prices, the account will incur a negative rollover amount of 600 EUR to offset the balance increase cause by the change in the front month. The short open DAX position would incur a 600 EUR negative amount to the account and therefore will have a positive 600 EUR rollover to offset the balance decrease caused by the change in the front month.


Please note

The accounts that have a limit or stop order set on the expiring month are required to adjust their prices to take into consideration of the new front month prices. If the adjustments are not made accordingly, it is possible that your working orders will get triggered once the new month prices take effect.
