DFB expiry for spreadbetting


Recommended Posts

I understand that DFBs will expire on 1 April 2016 for positions opened before 29 August 2015.

So, what would happen to those DFBs when they expire on 1 April 2016?


Would there be a rollover, and a new DFB will be opened?

And, would there be a charge/cost/spread to carry out the rollover?

Hi Jack. As you said correctly, any DFBs opened prior to 29 August 2015 are due to expire on 1 April 2016. When they expire the positions will be closed and won't be affected by any automatic rollover instructions you may have set up on your account. Therefore, if you'd like the positions to be rolled over into a new DFB you would need to call us to speak to a dealer who can manually roll over your positions. This will be done with no additional charges, so your position(s) will simply be closed and reopened at the same price. The new DFBs will have an expiry of 6 April 2029.

    • Asian markets stabilised overnight, or at least tried to, as the selling in risk assets eased for the time being. Even sterling managed to edge up against the dollar after its roller-coaster ride yesterday, not that the Bank of England did very much to improve the pound's chances against the greenback. The Dow Jones joined the S&P 500 in bear market territory yesterday, and while things have calmed down for now investors remain very nervous about the prospects for the global economy. Curiously, there are further signs inflation might ease off in due course, most notably the drop in oil prices to their lowest level since January. But for the moment central banks have inflation in their sights and are determined to press on with rate increases and running down their holdings of assets purchases under QE programmes.
