Ultima Markets Index Dividend Adjustment Notice

17 February 2022

Dear Client,

Ultima Markets is one of the world’s leading brokers, with multi-country regulation, and offers its clients a wide range of financial trading products, including currency pairs, precious metals, energy, indices, and stocks, among more than 200 trading products.

When the client is trading in Contracts for Difference (CFDs) on spot stock indices, if a component of the underlying stock index pays a dividend/dividend (payout) to its shareholders, your trading account will be adjusted ex-dividend at 00:00 server time on the same day and the corresponding gain or expense will occur depending on the position you holding and will be reflected in the account history.


Note: The above data is expressed in the base currency of each index, the actual execution data may be subject to change, please refer to the MT4 software.

Please note that when the stock indexes go ex-dividend, the Dividend will be adjusted separately in the form of a capital recovery/deduction. You can check in your account history that the funds are adjusted with the following comment “Div & Index Name & Net Lot Size”, which is the dividend adjustment, where the long positions lot size is calculated as “positive” and the short positions lot size is calculated as “negative”, and the sum of the two is the “Net Lot Size”.

An example is as follows.
If you trade 5 lots long positions of NAS100, you can see the “Div & NAS100 & 5” adjustment in the account history in the form of balance; conversely, if you trade 5 lots short positions of NAS100, you can see the “Div & NAS100 & -5” payout adjustment in the account history in the form of balance.

If you are concerned about the impact of dividend payments on your account funds, we recommend that you carefully evaluate your current positions and consider whether to hold it overnight.

If you have any questions or require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact [email protected].

Kind regards,
Ultima Markets
