Long positions are charged with the relevant interbank rate plus a mark-up, and short positions receive the rate minus a mark-up. The operation is conducted at 00:00 GMT+2 time zone (note that DST may apply), and can take several minutes. From Wednesday to Thursday swap is charged for three days.

Margin requirements may be subject to change before earnings announcements and/or any corporate action.
The average spreads shown here are calculated throughout the day. Spreads to be narrower under normal market conditions, but they may widen following important news announcements, during political uncertainty, unexpected events leading to volatile market conditions, or at the close of the business day and on weekends when liquidity is lower.

Your trades are matched and any next exposure above predefined thresholds is hedged with our partner banks (our liquidity providers) at the current market spreads. However, during volatile and illiquid market conditions our liquidity providers quote spreads larger than normal. At such times, XM is forced to pass on some of the spread increases to its clients.

The margin requirement for CFDs is calculated like this : Lots * Contract Size * Opening Price * Margin Percentage and not based on the leverage of your trading account.
Calendar dates are indicative and are subject to change.

CFDs on Germany30 (GER30Cash) and CFDs on future indices are not subject to dividend adjustments.
