What is Stock Index CFD?

A stock index, also known as a stock index, is an index of the actual stock market that measures the value of a particular sector of the stock market. These are calculated based on the weighted average of the stocks that belong to the actual division of the constituent stocks. In addition to symbolizing a particular stock market such as the NSDAQ, the stock index represents a large group of companies that are responsible for the economy of the country, such as the S & P 500 in the United States, the FTSE 100 in the United Kingdom, or the Nikkei 225 in Japan.

The index is intended to represent the general direction of economic activity in a particular stock market or country. However, because the stock index is made up of a collection of companies, it is strongly influenced by the big movements of a particular company and the big movements of a particular sector due to trading.

The actual weighted averages assigned to stock indexes from constituents differ among the various indexes, which means that not all indexes use the same criteria to determine the final average. The two main methods of calculating the actual weighted average value that a particular constituent stock shows on the index itself are the price-weighted index and the capitalization-weighted index.

Below you can see some of the categories to which the representative indices belong:

  • Dow Jones (US30) and Nikkei 225 (Japan225) are price-weighted average indices.
  • FTSE 100 (UK 100), ASX200 (Australia 200), Hang Seng Index (Hong Kong 50), DAX (Germany 30), CAC 40 (France 40) and IBEX 35 (Spain 35) are major stock indexes. These are market value weighted average stock indexes.

Dividend adjustment to the cash index (excluding GER40)

CFD products in the physical index are subject to dividend adjustment.

If a component of a stock index pays a dividend to its shareholders, it essentially reduces the value of the company by the amount of the dividend.

This is reflected in the decline in the stock price of the company on the ex-dividend date, as well as in the decrease in the value of the stock index, which is proportional to the weight of the stock in the stock index.

Dividend adjustment is for customers who hold the stock index position at 00:00 (GMT + 2 time zone, time difference from Japan time is 7 hours in winter / 6 hours in summer) so that there is no effect on the position. Dividend adjustment will be made to your trading account.

Dividend adjustments will be made prior to the opening of the ex-dividend date (see above for market times).

German40 (GER40Cash) CFD products are not subject to dividend adjustments as the dividends paid by their constituents are reinvested in the stock index itself . Therefore, no downward adjustments will be made by the components that pay dividends.

CFD products in the Futures Index are not subject to dividend adjustments .

For buy transactions, the amount calculated as follows will be paid:

Dividend adjustment = Declared index dividend x Position size in lots

When you make a sell transaction, you will be charged the amount calculated as follows :

Dividend adjustment = Declared index dividend x Position size in lots
