Please help me calculate rollover, i`m so confused about it.

So here is the formula that my broker has on its site

Rollover= Swap rate / 10000 * [POSITION SIZE] * [NR OF DAYS]

And for Yen

Rollover= Swap rate / 100 * [POSITION SIZE] * [NR OF DAYS]

I also saw on other sites other formulas like:

Rollover = Contract notional value x (base currency interest rate – quote currency interest rate) / 365 days per year x current base currency rate

WTF?????????? So confusing, please help me!

And i cant make sense of it, because in MT4 it says otherwise

Lets that the AUD/USD for example


You can see that the swaptype is in points so in pips i guess.

Now please tell me how much swap (in pips) will i get for 1 day AUD/USD long ? And for AUD/USD short ? And also lets say for 3 days, because it adds up.

And please tell me the correct formula how to calculate it in MT4, please!!!

SWAP LONG = Lotsise * Marketinfo mode tickvalue * swap long.

but in Day of Week== 3 ,  SWAP is  calculated  * 3

i know that on wednesday the swap is 3x more, however how much swap do i get if i let the position open for 1 week for example ?

SWAP LONG = Lotsise * Marketinfo mode tickvalue * swap long * (1 + 1 +3 + 1 +1)

SWAP LONG = Lotsise * Marketinfo mode tickvalue * swap long * 7

???

Does it get multiplied by 7, or will it grow cumulatively as the profit grows?
