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.

My positions on seemed to have been automatically closed With "DFB" I think. Can you explain why as I thought there was no expirery date for FTSE100 and can you roll these positions forward and have them reopened at the new DFB which expires 2029?

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
