    • The African swine fever disease has reached Southeast Asia and parts of Europe, including the world’s biggest producer of Pork, China. A prediction from the Japanese bank Nomura, is that this could cause prices to rise by 78% in China by 2020, to 33 yuan per kilogram from 18.5 yuan

    Can anyone please explain what the 1.14 for the FTSE mean in terms of how the dividend adjustment is calculated?

    Also why is is highlighted in red?


    Here is the breakdown for the ftse 100 ex-dividend adjustment which comes to 1.11.

    The 1.14 is due to the inclusion of the 2 Special dividends listed for UKX in the OP and as specials have been included it's been given a red box.

    I’m not clear at all, as I had a dividend payment debit to my account for £460 this evening, yet in your explanations, you refer to them being “cash neutral”.... Yes that was debited to my account! Could you explain that to me please?

    Hi, the video in the original post above explains the term 'cash neutral', is this not what occurred on your account?

    I don't seem to be able to access the menu by right clicking on a chart as you have shown in this blog. All I get is a small flash player related window as shown in the attached screen shot. I am using the desktop interface.

    Hi @The_Alnchemist,  the function is only available on the new platform on SB and cfd accounts currently and not available on the share dealing platform but will be when share dealing platform is upgraded.

  5. Excellent post @MaxIG, written by Kyle Rodda.

    The inverted yield curve (coming, nearly, here?) for US Treasuries  2s and 10s, or 1s and 10s, or 1s and 5s, has been hot news for months now, and is a never ending story that with hindsight can always be made to fit years down the line. Will the coming recession be here in 1 year or 2, or latter, will it be forestalled by a booming economy? (yes).

    On the news front for funds some are saying everything is fine, some that their clients have already moved from 'end of cycle' into 'recession' mode.

    If you are not a fund manager you should not be too worried because as a retail trader you can profit from up moves as well as down.
