Indices are subject to dividend adjustments depending on whether you are a buyer or a seller of the index.
What are Dividends on Indices?
An index is a weighted basket consisting of many companies. When one of these companies pays a dividend, it is effectively reducing its value by the amount of the dividend.
This reduction in value is reflected by a fall in the share price on the ex-dividend date. In the case of an index, the fall in the price is proportional to the size of the dividend and the weight of the company within that index. As a result, sometimes dividend adjustments are unnoticeable, while other times, their impact on an index price is clear.
How to Calculate Dividends on Indices?
In order to accurately reflect market conditions, Exness applies dividend adjustments to indices. They are paid or charged on positions open at 22:00 UTC the day before the ex-dividend date, i.e. during the nightly trading break on the index. Indices trading hours can be found here
Buy trades may receive a dividend, calculated as follows:
Dividend amount received = Lots x Contract Size × Pip Size × Dividend adjustment
Sell trades may be charged a dividend, calculated as follows:
Dividend amount charged = Lots x Contract Size × Pip Size × Dividend adjustment
Please closely monitor Dividend updates while trading respective indices. The table below is updated weekly to show upcoming dividends that will be paid/charged:
