why are dividends showing as a large adjustment on my account?

Hi @Beckybeech,

Thank you for your comment.

It’s important to remember that leveraged index traders can neither profit nor lose from these price movements, as they’re scheduled public events. Where a trader able to profit from these movements, they’d simply place a large short position just before the adjustment and close out just after, locking in the drop in the value.

If you have an open position through a dividend adjustment, we’ll ensure that there is no material impact on you by either crediting or debiting your ledger with the exact amount you have incurred as additional running loss/profit due to the dividend adjustment.

You can find further information with example here.

All the best - Arvin

Is there a place on IG where dividend adjustments are announced weekly? So a post, like this one, done weekly. If so, where is this posted?

Also, regarding the figures forecasted, using FTSE in the example where is states 26.75, how do you know if markets are going up by this amount or down?
