CFD Expiration Date

When trading spot stock indices via contracts for difference (CFDs), please be advised that when a listed company (component) of an underlying stock index pays dividend to its shareholders, the value of the corresponding position held in the client’s trading account will be affected after the closing of the market (trading platform / server time). Determined by whether the client’s position is long or short, the trading account will incur a net of tax dividend adjustment, which may be a payment or a charge. (Please note that stock indices futures CFDs do not participate in dividend adjustment. The composition of each Standard Lot referred here may vary significantly from one trading product to another, please refer to Contract Specification for details.)

 

Dividend payment received when holding a long position:

Dividend Payment = Component Dividend (weighted, per stock index contract) × Position Size in Standard Lot × Contract Size per Standard Lot Currency Multiplier

 

Dividend charge deducted when holding a short position:

Dividend Charge = Component Dividend (weighted, per stock index contract) × Position Size in Standard Lot × Contract Size per Standard Lot Currency Multiplier

 

The projected impact of any dividend issued by a component on a stock index is weighted and calculated, and such figures are published and updated on our official website.
