Do you add dividends?

Dividends are the portion of corporate profits that are allocated to shareholders, and the cut-off date for share ownership in order to qualify for a dividend is known as ex-dividend date.
At Plus500 you trade CFDs on equities, therefore, you do not actually own the share itself. If you have an equity CFD position open on the ex-dividend date, an adjustment will be made to your account in respect of the dividend paid on the underlying market. If you hold a buy position you will receive the dividend as a positive adjustment to your account. However, if you hold a sell position there will be a negative adjustment made. Please note that voting rights are not acquired with equity CFDs.
