Dividends

Question

Kindly clarify

1. If I sell (some or all) shares after the ex-div date does IG remember that I am entitled to dividends?

2. If a company pays a dividend today when will my account be credited, i.e. how long should I wait before contacting support?

Thanks

Recent experience confirms that the answer to 1 is yes (as you would expect), and suggests to expect a credit in your account on payment day T+1.

Yes, to confirm @dacarys - you only need to be holding the stock over the ex date. We'll note it in the back end, and forward you the funds as soon as we've received it from our prime broker. As you said, this is usually a day or so after the payment date.

    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
