Indices are the most popular form of CFDs. 4Xhub offers a large range

Australia 200 Index, EU Stocks 50 Index, France 40 Index.
A stock index is a good indicative measure of market performance. Indices such as the UK 100 Index and US SPX 500 Index are baskets of blue chip stocks listed on the exchange and are generally a good measure of the current market sentiment. A change in the performance of any constituent stock in an index is reflected in a change in the overall value of that index.
Indices have the advantage of allowing traders to take a wider view of a basket of stocks rather than taking a view on one individual stock alone. Online CFD and futures based indices are offered on our MT4 Platform.

From the above example, let us assume that the ex-dividend date for
Index AUS200 is on the of 18th August 2016. Therefore, a client must
have an open position for Index AUS200 before the 18th of August 2016
and it must remain open until the 18th August 2016, in order to have
the dividend adjustment of $2.44 per lot. To determine if the dividend
adjustment is added or deducted to the client’s account, will depend
on whether it is a SELL or BUY on AUS200. If the client has 1 lot of
BUY for AUS200, the client will be entitled $2.44 per lot. However, if
it is a SELL of AUS200, the client will be deducted $2.44 per lot. The
amount $2.44 per lot will be converted to the client’s base currency,
before it is being deducted.
Since this is from index AUS200, the dividend adjustment will be AUD$2.44 per lot. Alternatively, if the index is US500, the dividend adjustment would be USD$2.44 per lot. RevoTrade EX- Dividends Excel sheet shows the expected Indices that will have their index points adjusted for the given week and the actual ex-dividend adjustment amount for each indices will be updated regularly on our blog, Ex- Dividends Adjustments.
