Are you entitled for dividends when trading indices?
WHAT IS A DIVIDEND?
When making profits, each company can either choose to reinvest its earnings back into the business or pay dividends to its shareholders. By definition, dividends are a percentage of profits distributed by corporations to their shareholders. Normally, dividends are issued as cash payments. When trading CFDs with OneRoyal, dividends are applicable on Cash Indices and Stock CFDs.
HOW ARE DIVIDENDS DISTRIBUTED ON CFD POSITIONS? *
As a CFD holder, you will be affected by the dividend payments even if you do not hold the stock. The relative amount which will be applied is an adjustment to accounts holding a CFD position under the condition that the position held constitutes the underlying share that had a dividend payment (i.e.: an index holding the stock paying the dividend). It is important for traders to know that in the case of a long position on an index, the dividend adjustment is credited to the account. However, if a short position is opened, the dividend adjustment is debited from the account. Traders can neither profit nor lose from these adjustments, because the CFD position drops by the same value of the indicated dividend amount. These adjustments are only applicable to spot contracts.
* OneRoyal is not obliged to pay you any amount unless and until it receives that amount as the owner of the Reference Asset or an equivalent amount under the Hedge Contract acquired in respect of the Synthetic Equity. Furthermore, OneRoyal is not liable to pay to you any amount in excess of the amount (less any Taxes and costs) which OneRoyal itself receives either as the owner of the Reference Asset or pursuant to a Hedge Contract acquired in respect of the Synthetic Equity.
EXAMPLE OF HOW DIVIDENDS ARE APPLIED:
You are long 1 contract of the US500 Cash ($50 pip value). There is a dividend adjustment that incurs a loss of 2 points off the index. The loss would amount to 2 points x 50 = $100. Therefore, to negate the loss from your position, the amount credited to your account would be equal to $100.
