Examples of trading Indices
The price of NASDAQ-100 is 5679.00/5680.00. After observing the index of NASDAQ you believe that it is highly undervalued; so you decide to buy 2 contracts at 5680.00 (One contract is equal to $1 per index point). No commission is charged on trading Indices.
Four days later, the NASDAQ-100 Index has risen to 5696.00/5697.00 and you decide to take your profit. You close your position by selling all contracts at 5696.00.
The calculation of your trading profits:
1. This table illustrates the lowest spreads available on these indices available during the opening hours of the trading session in the underlying market. Spreads may we wider when the underlying market is closed or during extended trading hours.
2. Indices Trading will involve 3 charged fees：
B. Dividend Fee
C. Index Dividend: The NASDAQ Composite is an example of a composite index.
A number of equities, indices or other variables are grouped together and standardised, to provide a statistical measure of a market or sector’s overall performance over time. They provide a useful benchmark against which to measure an investor’s portfolio. Composite indices can be either price-weighted or capitalisation-weighted: the term ‘composite’ simply defines how the contents are sourced.
Dividend payments from the constituent shares of an index will generally cause the price of that index to fall. This is because the value of an individual share tends to drop on its ex-dividend date by the amount of the declared dividend.
If you have a futures position on an index, any expected dividend and interest payments will be factored into the price of the contract, so you won’t be affected by a drop in the index price.
If you have a long CFD position on an index that lists a company offering a dividend, you will also receive the dividend just as the company's shareholders would. So, provided that you hold your long position at close of business on the day before the ex-dividend date, you shouldn’t find yourself adversely affected. The dividend payment you receive should counter-balance any loss caused by the drop in the price of the index. If you have a short position open at that point, you will pay the dividend instead.
UBFX will make compensation for the traders who hold multiple positions. As for the traders who have empty position, we will deduct that, because with Index Dividend, the price of index will fall.
Index Dividend = dividend stocks x (number of shares in the stock/index factor), index will different according dividend stocks.
3. Index Margin = contract * market price * margin rate
