Swap Free Accounts or Islamic Accounts

According to it, the full amount of delivery is fulfilled on the next day. However, there are a lot of traders who use this opportunity on Forex and don't close their positions at the end of the day. Some want to get more profit in the new trading day, others leave the unprofitable trades and hope, that by the next day market will begin to move in the opposite direction, which is good for them and as a result, the losses will change to the profit. In both cases, the position, which is opened during the day, will be transferred to the next day. Such trades are closed at the end of the day and opened at the beginning of the next day automatically. This is the Swap operation.
