Dividend Adjustments on Cash Indices (excluding GER40)

CFDs on Cash Indices are subject to dividend adjustments. When an index constituent pays dividends to its shareholders it is essentially reducing the value of the company by the amount of the dividend. This is reflected on the ex-dividend date as a decrease of the company share price, as well as in a decrease in the value of the index in proportion to the weight of the stock within the index. To ensure no impact on positions, dividend adjustments will be made to the accounts of clients holding a position on the index at 00:00 (GMT+2 time zone, please note DST may apply) on the ex-dividend date. The dividend adjustment is made before the market open on the ex-dividend date (market hours can be found above). CFDs on Germany40 (GER40Cash) are not subject to dividend adjustments because the dividends paid by its constituent stocks are reinvested in the index itself. Thus, no downward adjustment occurs due to a constituent paying a dividend. CFDs on Future Indices are also not subject to dividend adjustments.

Buy trades will receive an amount calculated as follows:

Dividend adjustment = Index Dividend declared x position size in Lots

Sell trades will be charged an amount calculated as follows:

Dividend adjustment = Index Dividend declared x position size in Lots

Equity indices, or stock indices, are in simple language indexes that represent the overall price of a basket of underlying stocks.

The major equity indices (stock indices of the world) include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. S&P 500
  2. Dow Jones
  3. Nasdaq
  4. FTSE100
  5. Nikkei225
  6. DAX
  7. CAC40
  8. Euro Stoxx 50
  9. ASX200

Stock indices are in most cases a representation of the overall picture of the stock market, which their basket belongs to. In most cases, the underlying stocks that belong to a stock index consist of the most influential (largest capitalization) companies.

During any trading day, stock prices of specific companies will go up or down. Since a stock index is a compilation of a basket of underlying stocks, its actual price will move up or down based on the overall dynamics (mathematical and statistical formula) of which each stock price contributes to its final price.

The following are useful points to understand when trading equity indices:

  1. All the stocks in a specific equity index (e.g. Dow Jones) are subject to a selection process and might be substituted by another company if their overall trading performance is overcome from a newcomer. In other words, the companies that belong to a basket are not guaranteed to be always the same.
  2. The determination of the influence of a specific stock to the overall stock index includes calculations and rules. Not all stocks that add up to the basket are treated as equal. In simple words, the overall price of stock index is not a simple addition of the prices of the stocks and a division by the number of stocks.
  3. A stock index shows the general consensus and can be considered a benchmark of performance of the overall stock market with historical value.
  4. As mentioned in point 2, since not all stocks that belong to the basket are treated as equal, more weight is given to the index from companies with larger capitalization. This means that if the stock of a specific large company falls for any reason, the overall index will follow it even though the rest of the stocks in the basket might not be falling.
  5. As mentioned in point 1, the underlying stocks that belong to the basket, which is called an index, change over time. Over a historical period, the index itself does not always represent the same basket of stocks.
