How our pricing is derived

Our pricing is derived from:

  • Forex and metals: Liquidity providers
  • Commodities, copper and bonds: a combination of relevant futures prices (‘near’ and ‘far’ contracts)
  • Indices: A combination of the relevant futures price and the cash or spot price in respect of the underlying reference product.

Your orders are filled at our best available price.

Forex and Metals CFDs Icon

Forex and metals CFDs

Our pricing for forex and metals CFDs is derived from our liquidity providers - major financial institutions who provide us with available spot pricing for FX pairs and metals. These prices are analysed by our automated pricing system to generate our midpoint price for each FX pair and metal CFD. Different groups of liquidity providers are used to derive pricing for different products/instruments.

For unusual FX pairs, we may derive the price from two major/minor currency pairs. For example, the price for the Singapore Dollar/South African Rand FX pair may be derived from the USD/SGD and USD/SAR FX pair prices.

Indices Icon

Indices CFDs

Our pricing for our indices CFDs is calculated by reference to a combination of the relevant futures prices and the ‘cash’ or ‘spot’ prices, in respect of the underlying instrument.

Adjustments are made such as adding our own spread, adjusting for liquidity in external markets, currency exchange rate differentials and other relevant factors. Adjustments may also be made to reflect market movement following the payment of dividends and other anticipated corporate actions.

Commodities and Bonds CFDs Icon

Commodities, copper and bonds CFDs

The prices of our commodity (including copper) and bond CFDs are based on underlying futures contracts. When an underlying futures contract is near expiry, we calculate the basis rate, which represents the difference in price between the expiring futures contract and the next futures contract. From that point forward, our CFD price is calculated as the present value of the price of the next futures contract, using the basis rate for the present value calculation. The present value is calculated continuously, second-by-second.

When the basis rate is positive, the CFD price will tend to move upwards towards the contract price.  When the basis rate is negative, the CFD price will tend to move downwards towards the contract price.

Frequently asked questions


What are financing costs?


What is a corporate action?

Constituent stocks of an index will periodically pay dividends to shareholders. When they do, this impacts the overall price of the index, causing it to drop by a certain amount. We may make dividend adjustments if a dividend is scheduled to be paid to the holders of the underlying instrument. These adjustments are normally made on the ex-dividend date.


How would dividend adjustments work on open positions of index CFDs?

When there’s a dividend payment, this is normally reflected in the index CFD price. If you have an open position at the time of a dividend adjustment, we’ll ensure that there is no material impact on you by either crediting or debiting your account with the same amount that your unrealised profit and loss has been impacted.

For example:

For long positions:

Let’s assume UK100 (FTSE) is trading at 7,167.95 GBP. If you are long 20 units of UK 100 and a stock in the index pays out a dividend that equates to 5 index points.

The index value would drop to 7162.95 GBP.

The dividend adjustment would be

= index dividend points X no. of units of the index CFD held
= 5 X 20 = 100 GBP

This will be credited to your account post home currency conversion.

For short positions:

Let’s assume US SPX 500 (S&P500) is trading at 2,989.69 USD. If you are short 10 units and a stock in the index pays out a dividend that equates to of 0.890 index points.

The dividend adjustment would be

= Index dividend points X no. of units of the index CFD held
= 0.890 X 10 = 8.90 USD

This will be debited from your account post home currency conversion.

You will be able to see OANDA's dividend adjustments on your Transaction History and Statements.
