what are dividends in derivatives indices?

Dividends on derivatives indices provide an additional income stream that can be earned by holding long positions on specific index derivatives. These dividends are based on the dividend payments made by the constituent companies within the index. With this new feature, you have the opportunity to benefit from dividend payouts while trading derivatives on popular indices.

How dividends will be handled

Long Positions
Long Positions

When you hold a long position on a derivative index that is eligible for dividends, you will receive a dividend adjustment credited to your trading account. The dividend adjustment is calculated based on the dividend amount and the number of derivatives contracts held. It's important to note that dividend adjustments may vary depending on market conditions and the specific index derivatives.

Short Positions
Short Positions

On the other hand, if you hold a short position on an eligible derivative index, a dividend adjustment will be deducted from your trading account. Similar to long positions, the dividend adjustment for short positions is calculated based on the dividend amount and the number of derivatives contracts held.
