If the opened positions are not closed before 5:00 a.m. on Thursday (HKT) (summer time), technically, such positions will be settled on Saturday. The bank closes on Saturday, so the positions will be transferred to Monday after the weekend, and interests of such three days will be received. If the opened positions are not closed before 04:45 a.m. on Saturday (HKT) (summer time), receipt and payment of interest on the day will be calculated as interest of one day as the said extension of opened positions includes interests on the weekend. Similarly, there are no overnight interests in holidays, but overnight interests of an extra day are calculated for two working days before holidays. Generally, overnight interests of holidays will be calculated in important holidays in the country of currency involved in trading.
