  1. appears to be impressive On a real-world basis, one thing that comes to mind is a problem with the execution times of your orders. They execute instantly in the demo, but you may experience drawdowns due to lag on real accounts. I'm guessing this strategy should be tested on a live demo account first.
  2. So, I believe the swap only applies to the pair that is on vacation on Monday? Those exotic pairs impose such a wide spread that short-term carry trades are unprofitable. Major pairs, on the other hand, typically have a negative swap for both buy and sell trades...
  3. I recently discovered that Pepperstone and Thinkforex (now Thinkmarket) charge their clients a triple swap rate on Wednesdays for weekend clearance. When asked what would happen if I closed the trades the following day, i.e. Thursday, would they return the extra two days swap to me? The answer is a depressing 'NO.' Could someone please enlighten me as to whether this is industry standard practice or just some astute brokers finding a way to extract more money from their clients while going unnoticed?
