Accrued Interest

Trading Term

  2. In the Balances section of the TWS Account Window, this is the interest that has accumulated but has not been paid or charged for both the securities and commodities segments of your account.
  3. In the Market Value – Real FX Position section of the TWS Account Window, this is the current month’s accrued debit and credit interest to date, updated daily.
