Swap is different throughout history and changes all the time, also is heavily different even between brokers, but surely it won´t hurt to have an option as there is a tendency that longer holding trades usually cost more because of the swap - and then there is the 3 day charge on Wednesdays - please add this too if you are at it guys :-)

A simple static calculation like in MT4 would be better than nothing in case it's too hard to get an accurate historical floating calculation.

Swap vs no swap average holding time ~7 days and ~9 days. It's not a small difference. Forex traders can't really trust long holding times strats that come out of SQX until this gets fixed. This is more like a bug.

Can you please atleast add 3 boxes for long/short swaps and margins to the Instrument window at minimum? This will allow us to use them in custom columns.

-Beginners are cautioned about software that does not include all the proper trading costs. SWAP is another cost similar to spread, slippage and commission.
-As much as SQX is a technical miracle full of an amazing set of features, not including all trading costs properly is borderline preposterous for a 2k$ software.
-Forex traders are locked in to shorter timeframes without this "feature." The potential to find strategies which work on many markets and hold positions for weeks is there but without SWAP it is very awkward to search for the longer term strategies.

Fixed value like the way slippage is would be fine. Could maybe expose code so community can introduce the function for dynamic values on their own.

Swaps are substantial cost of trading. Need to have it on SQX. Hope guys will implement it smart.

Yeas, I fully agree. It is very important for example for Daily Trend following strategies.

swap is added to 131 in WhatIf simulation. We don't plan to add it in another way for now - we have higher priorities

Imagine if the commission were not included and you had to filter anything that got hammered by commissions with a whatif? 


When I filter for profit factor, sharp rdd etc it should include all the costs in the main data or it isn't correct.

pf, sharp, rdd all will be skewed towards longer holding times because those are missing the most costs. (Or those are correctly priced with the use of overcharging commission but then the lower holding times are way overcharged)

SQ Dev team. Swaps is an ENORMOUS trading cost. 


Attached is an example of the difference it can make.


Using Whatif is a poor man's poverty solution to this problem. It's a FUNDAMENTAL trading cost that should be a CORE function of building in SQ like spreads, commissions, slippage etc.

It is essential to be able to factor in swap costs when generating strategies that holds overnight positions. We can't talk about SQ having accurate backtests otherwise!
