hi,can anyone please tell me if there is a way to protect yourself from a share going ex div? i did a cfd last time,just to find that they adjust the price of the cfd,i dont trade in cfd's but it was a real learning curve....the hard way.im sure they do the same with a futures contract?
but an equal number of stocks go up ex div, so go figure. Barry had a strategy of trading stocks on the run up to their divs. Don't know if he still does it - but I would put him as the forum resident expert on this type of trading.
