Why are rollover/swap rates for Forex, Stocks and Metals pairs tripled on Wednesdays and Indices pairs on Fridays?

Updated 4 months ago

The usual value date for Forex pairs is 2 days ahead. Therefore, a position that is held open on Wednesday has a value date on Saturday. As trading is closed on Saturdays and Sundays triple rollover/swap fees must apply to compensate for the weekend. This applies for Metals and Energies pairs and Stocks too. The same applies for Indices pairs but these are charged on Fridays.
