As you know, constituent stocks of an index will periodically pay dividends to shareholders. When they do, the overall value of the index is affected, causing it to drop by a certain amount. Each week, we receive the forecast for the number of points any index is due to drop by, and we publish this for you. As dividends are scheduled, public events, it is important to remember that leveraged index traders can neither profit nor lose from such price movements.

Do you get paid the credit adjustment if you have long position on index such as asx200?

Yes, if you are long on the Index you will receive the dividend amount to offset the loss in your position, and you will be debited if you are short, to offset the gain on your position. This is because dividends are zero-sum when trading on leverage.

Hi, yesterday the FTSE dividend adjustment was only 13.5 points which is less than shown in the table above. Please can you confirm whether there are any other adjustments this week?
