I was informed by IG that options adjustments/calibrations usually take place on the last Friday of every month, as we know that's not always the case.
Would you be able to produce a similar calendar to the one you posted when IG expected options adjustments take place for the month commencing as it would make life a little easier?

Hi @Ben1, thanks for the post.
Please could you clarify exactly what you mean by 'options adjustments/calibrations'? Our options prices are maintained and updated around the clock - perhaps you are referring to expiries? On which type of option: index, equity, etc?
Looking forward to hearing back from you and answering your question.

Hi @hart, thanks for the post!
The Germany 30 is a performance-weighted index, which means that there are no price adjustments to be made when composite companies pay a dividend. The indices you see listed in our adjustment table are either market cap-weighted or price-weighted.
Let me know if you need any more information!
