Dividends

While trading contracts for the CFD difference, the dividend adjustment is to be taken into account. If there is an open buy position (Buy) on the day of the register fixing (ex-dividend date), the amount of the amendment is charged to the trading account. If there is an open position for sale (Sell) on the day of fixing the register (ex-dividend date), the amount of the amendment is debited from the trading account. An example of calculating an adjustment to a dividend is shown below.

For example, the company Alcoa Inc. (AA) announces the payment on January 18, 2016 (declaration date) of the next dividend of $ 0.03 per share. The preliminary date for obtaining the right to a dividend (ex-dividend date) is set for February 3, 2016. If there is an open position on February 3, 2016 with the size of 1 lot (100 shares) to buy (Buy) CFC shares of Alcoa (AA), the following amount is charged to the trading account:

100 х 0.03 = 3 USD

If there is an open position on February 3, 2016 with the size of 1 lot (100 shares) for sale (Sell) under CFD of Alcoa (AA) shares, the following amount is debited from the trading account:

100 х 0.03 = 3 USD

An amendment to a trading account dividend shall be accrued / debited within 3 months after the date of the fixation of the register (ex-dividend date).
