I understand what a carrytrade is but I don't understand just how much I can earn from it. Let's say the gap in interest rates between two currencies is 5%. How much do I earn if I create a $1000 long position and a $1000 brief position, and is it true that I earn three times up to the wednesdays.

Ps. Sorry for my language. English is not my native language.

The healine should have been Assist to understand the carrytrade Sorry for that.
