Holding a forex position overnight incurs a debit or credit to your account according to the rollover rate. On any forex trading platform, they quote the current rollover rate at all times, so you know exactly what it is, but for most of us, it is insignificant.

Definition of ‘Rollover Rate (Forex)’
The net interest return on a currency position held by a trader. The rollover rate converts net currency interest rates, which are given as a percentage, into a cash return for the position. Since a trader is long one currency and short another, the net effect of both interest rates has to be calculated.

In forex, a rollover means that a position is extended at the end of the trading day without settling.

Investopedia explains ‘Rollover Rate (Forex)’
For example, an investor has a long 100,000 EUR/USD at a rate of 1.3000. The EUR interest rate is 2%, or a daily rate of 0.0054%, and the USD is 3% or a daily rate of 0.0081%.

The interest on the EUR is (100,000 * 0.0054%) 5.40 EUR; the USD costs (130,000 * 0.0081%) 10.53 USD. Converting the EUR to USD, 5.40 * 1.3000 = USD 7.02. The net USD amount is 7.02 – 10.53 = – 3.51, which is divided by the 100,000 position. On a long EUR/USD position, the rollover costs 0.00003562, or 0.3562 pips.

So you can see that unless you’re talking about millions of dollars invested, the rollover rate is only one-third of one pip, and is quite insignificant.
