How do we calculate dividend payouts?

If you are holding a position for an index or an underlying share on the ex-date, the dividend adjustment will be made to your account balance according to the formula Cd = Q x D, where Cd is the dividend commission, Q is the number of shares, D is the amount of dividends per share (at the buy position, the amount of dividends per share after taxes).
Such an adjustment will be calculated based on the size of the dividend, the size of your position, taxation and whether it is a buy or a sell trade. If you hold a long position, the dividend adjustment will be made in your favour (the dividend amount will be credited to your account balance). If you hold a short position, the dividend adjustment will be made in favour of our company (the dividend amount will be deducted from your balance).
