CFD on stocks

The amendment on dividends:

When executing trades involving CFD on stocks, dividend adjustment applies:

  • The dividend adjustment may be positive. With the positive adjustment applied, the amount for dividend adjustment is added to the client's trading account. The positive adjustment applies in case, on the ex-dividend date, the client holds a buy position for the corresponding instrument, which was opened at least 5 days prior to the ex-dividend date.
  • The dividend adjustment may be negative. With the negative adjustment applied, the client's trading account is charged. The negative dividend adjustment applies in case, on the ex-dividend date, the client holds an open sell position for the corresponding instrument.

The example of calculation of the amendment on the dividend is given below.

For example, the American Express Company (AXP) company declares payment on May 21, 2015 (declared date) of the next dividend at a rate of $0.15 for one action. The preliminary date of receipt of the right to the dividend (ex-dividend date) is appointed to July 3, 2015. In the presence of an open position for July 3, 2015 in the size 1 lot (100 actions) on purchase (Buy) under the contract CFD of the share of the company of American Express Company (AXP) into the trading account is charged the sum: 100 х 0.15 = 15 USD

In the presence of an open position for July 3, 2015 in the size of 1 prize (100 actions) on sale (Sell) under the contract CFD of the share of the company of American Express Company (AXP) from the trading account is written off the sum: 100 х 0.15 = 15 USD

The amendment on the dividend into the trading account is charged/is written off within 3 months after date of fixing of the register (ex-dividend date).
