Accuracy of dividend adjustments


Guest Tony

Recommended Posts

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

    • This weekend don't forget the rules to SAVE LIVES!!!!!   ... unless of course you happen to be going to Ascot 👍
    • Looks like it's a flat squib affair for the SP500 - I'm away early next week, but I'd give this until Tuesday (max 3 weeks after the physical date) to do something otherwise I'm marking it down as a failure Which is not bad, out of all the TC's this one is the one to be most concerned won't work, especially during an UP Bullish major cycle, which is what we are in, but the expectation was for the market to react as per May 2012 as shown on the Internal cycle harmonic chart in the post directly above So unless we get a 7%+ correction from the highs next week - I'll simply log this as failed - remember we trade the market NOT the Time Cycle  The small correction into the actual date is NOT good enough to say that was it! - We should be able to see these corrections/upswings clearly on a monthly chart, which means they should be of significance I'll hold off publishing the next Time Cycle just in case something happens next week SP500 Index Daily Chart: data to Thursday 17th June 2021
