I received/paid triple the amount of interest I normally would receive/pay

For positions that are open on Wednesday (AEST) and held overnight, the amount added or subtracted to an account as a result of rolling over a position (swap) is three times the usual amount. This is due to the markets being closed on weekends and no swap rates being charged during that time. The triple swap is a way to account for the period when the market is closed.
