Swap/rollover on portfolio

Hi all, I have tried some searching on here and wasn't able to come up with anything. My broker reports swap or rollover as deposits/withdrawals. I don't want it to show as deposits or withdrawals, but as swap. Is there any way to get the system to properly track this metric since my broker reports it as withdrawal/deposits instead of swap? The comment always shows the pairs, amounts, and notes that it is a 'R/O'.

Hello jumpboat,
I believe this is happening, because they use plugin for swap/financing charges and that is the reason to see it in different column. If I am not mistaken, something similar was with FXCM (they does not have it in the swap column, but as a trade.

It is coming from your broker server/s and most likely what you can do is just to ask them whether this could be changed somehow from their side.

Well if you keep records of your deposits and withdrawals (which should not be many) – you can easily differentiate the Swap and Rollover from them. Other option will be change from your broker.

hello jumpboat,

Actually it also depends on the account type you are having. If you are having s standard or normal ECN account, in that swap charged will be charged on your overnight positions and there will be a separate column in which you can see your swap charges. But I have also heard about other account types like Islamic account where there are no swap charges however if your position is held for more than 2 days, you are charged some maintenance cost which is deducted from your trading account and reflected as withdrawal.
