How do dividend adjustments work?

As you know, constituent stocks of an index will periodically pay dividends to shareholders. When they do, the overall value of the index is effected, causing it to drop by a certain amount. Each week, we receive the forecast for the number of points any index is due to drop by, and we publish this for you. As dividends are scheduled, public events, it is important to remember that leveraged index traders can neither profit nor lose from such price movements.

It's expected that there will be a special div of 0.14 on the FTSE today, so you need to take that off the number quoted above.

Re: Dividend Adjustments 07 May - 11 May

Hi,

Is the Australia200 dividend still going to be 12.5 pts today ?

I can't see why when there is only one small stock going ex-div

Tamawood LTD .11 cents

If it still is going to be 12.5 pts can you help me understand why it is so large in reference to said stock.

Thank you

After calling IG I found that the div adj shown for today reflects the stocks going ex-div for Monday so one day in advance, the alternative is to make the adjustment on the Monday morning but that would not alert us properly as traders.

Re: Dividend Adjustments 07 May - 11 May

Yeh so index adjustments are made after the close of that market. Makes sense really as the only other option would be the morning of the div when the market itself takes out (prices in) that move, but who wants to be dicking around with all that price gapping and large candlestick movements on the opening bell...? Not me!

Hey @bcck1234 thanks for your message. 

 

Just checked with the desk and it turns out there was an adjustment on that day specifically for 3.4 which relates to your account. Apologies that we missed this, however please note that it is cash neutral and therefore doesn't have an effect on your account balance (i.e. your profits on the open position would have gone up by the exact same value.) 

 

In the future we are looking to automate this action, but at present it is manual.
