How is funding on forex positions calculated?

FX and spot metals funding

A tom-next rather than an interbank rate is used in the calculation of funding costs for forex and spot metals.

Tom-next is the day’s market swap rate for that pair or metal.

Example tom-next rate: -1.39/-0.39.

-0.39 would be used to calculate the funding cost on a long position.

-1.39 would be used to calculate the funding cost on a short position.
