Trade CFDs on indices

We offer indices like the Germany 40, which compiles the largest German stocks, and the US 500, listing the most-capitalised US stocks. Traders often choose indices because of their potential for diversified risk compared to single stocks. Indices also offer the potential for volatility, although volatile market conditions can mean pronounced losses as well as profits.

Dividends and positions on indices

Dividends will be accrued to clients who hold positions on indices.

What is a dividend?

The distribution of a section of a company’s earnings to its shareholders is known as its dividends. Dividends are a portion of earnings chosen by the company’s board of directors and can be issued in the form of shares of stock, cash payment or property. When a company makes a profit it can reinvest this money back into the company and/or distribute the profits to its shareholders. If a company decides to pay its shareholders dividends, a fixed amount per share is designated and shareholders will receive this amount at a specific date. The ex-dividend date determines when trading in the underlying stock no longer includes an entitlement to the upcoming dividend payment and therefore on the ex-dividend date the value of the underlying share will decrease by the approximate dividend value. Anyone already holding a position in the underlying stock prior to and going into the ex-dividend date will be entitled to receive, or required to pay, the dividend depending on whether they are long or short. Anyone opening a position on the ex-dividend date will not be entitled to, or required to pay, the dividend.

Example of how dividends are applied for indices

An index typically reflects the weighted average share price of several underlying stocks trading on the same exchange, therefore if one of these stocks declares a dividend payment then the underlying share price will decrease by the dividend value and the index will also decrease by the equivalent weighted average value of the same dividend on the ex-dividend date. Clients that hold positions on indices will receive or pay the equivalent weighted average value of the same dividend on the ex-dividend date.
