How do we interpret the 0.11 for FTSE 100?  Is that 0.11 points? (the index is 6295 at the time of writing this)

Could you provide an example calculation, say for a trader with 50 points long position on FTSE 100?

Thanks for your comment. 

FTSE dividend are adjusted at 16:30 BST. As long as you don't hold the position through that time you will not be subject to the adjustments. 

You could close the position at 16:29, and reopen at 16:31 if you want to avoid the adjustment

Thanks for your comment.

It's simply your size x 0.11.

On a spread betting account is you were trading £2 per point it would be (£2 x 0.11 so £0.22)

With CFD, the contract size (for a normal contract) is £10. If you were holding 2 contracts it would be 2 x £10 x 0.11 = £2.20.
