DIVIDENDS FOR CASH INDICES AND SHARES CFDS

What is a Dividend?

A dividend is a distribution of a company’s earnings to its shareholders and owners, usually in the form of cash payment. When a company generates profits, those profits can be either paid out to the shareholders as a dividend or reinvested back in the business.

How a dividend affects the price of the Cash Index or Share CFD?

When a company pays out a dividend, the price of its share will fall by the amount of the dividend on the ex-dividend date. The Index that includes the underlying company will also decrease by the equivalent weighted average value of the same dividend.

How to calculate Dividends?

Traders who hold a long position will receive the dividend amount, calculated as follow:

Lots x Contract Size x Dividend Adjustment

Traders who hold a short position will pay the dividend amount, calculated as follow:

Lots x Contract Size x Dividend Adjustment

How my position will be affected from the Dividend adjustment?

easyMarkets will handle the dividend adjustment using the swaps mechanism.

Example:

Let’s assume the below:

1) There is an upcoming dividend adjustment of 1.5 USD for US Tech Index. Hence the price of the index is expected to fall on the ex-dividend date.
2) The closing rate of the Index before the ex-dividend date is 12500.00.
3) Assuming no other market forces, the Index will open at 12498.5 on the ex-dividend date.

The daily swaps values of the Index for the current week are:

MT4/MT5 Swap Long: - 2.46

MT4/MT5 Swap Short: + 0.72

easyMarkets proprietary platform/App Swap Long: - 0.0197%

easyMarkets proprietary platform/App Swap Short: + 0.0058%

On the day before the ex-dividend date, the swaps for the Index will be adjusted as follow:

MT4/MT5 Swap Long: -2.46 + 1.50 = - 0.96

MT4/MT5 Swap Short: +0.72 – 1.50 = - 0.78

easyMarkets proprietary platform/App Swap Long: -0.0197% + (0.012%) = - 0.0077%

easyMarkets proprietary platform/App Swap Short: +0.0058% - (0.012%) = - 0.0062%

* In our proprietary platforms Swap is named as Rolling fee

** Islamic accounts trading a share or a cash index on ex-dividend date, the dividend amount will be added or deducted directly from their balance

When are the upcoming dividend adjustments?
