Accuracy of dividend adjustments

Recommended Posts

Guest Tony

Hi

For an index (say FTSE 100), how do you know the adjustment made by a provide like IG  is correct? Is there transparency around this?

Also, if you are long, I believe IG returns 90% of the dividend? Since 16/17 tax year, the 10% notional pension credit was removed so why not payout 100%? Seems like they are profiting from this?

Thanks.

Thanks for your post. 

The dividend adjustment is made on the ex dividend date of stocks that make up the FTSE100 that are giving out a dividend. 

If you're long the price will move down and you're credited the adjusted amount. If you look at the closing price of the previous candle stick and the open of the new one you will be able to see that the price adjustment and loss are the same. 

We have client trading both long and short, we make this adjustment at the same time, no one wins or loses they're purely adjustments. 

If you want to find out why the adjustments are the figures we adjust them by you can email us and ask for a breakdown on which stocks are giving out dividends or you can search for this yourself. 

All the best

Thank CharlotteIG, I think I'm right in saying that if long 10% is deducted for tax? Can you please confirm exactly what tax this is? there is no UK tax at source for dividend? Thank you

    • My brain isn't working properly any more
    • I would says so, unless you are dealing with short time frames and large sums of money and you are able to be glued to the screen 100% of the time and give it your full attention.
    • So that's a bearish candle, after an up move that's running out of steam (with small read bodies and long legs), falling back down towards established Fibonacci levels, with a MACD crossing from above 0 and RSI below 50     At one point I had the RSI set to 9, and that additionally gives an overbought divergence (price goes higher but RSI doesn't).  This also gives a nice oversold indication when the move down is coming to an end
