If a CFD position is held open at the expiry of the existing underlying contract, it will be automatically rolled to the next month or quarter. Meanwhile, a rollover adjustment will be made to your account to reflect the difference between the current contract month price and the next contract month price. The adjustment will be in the form of swaps charge or credit depending on the direction of the position.
|March Futures CFD’s Prevailing Market Price||14205.00/14225.00|
|April Futures CFD’s Prevailing Market Price||14235.00/14255.00|
|Rollover Adjustment (1 Lot)|
|Long CFD||USD 50.00 Charge|
|Short CFD||USD 10.00 Credit|
For a Long position, Rollover Adjustment = (BID price of Current Month's Contract – ASK price of Next Month's Contract) x Lot Size x CFD Contract Size = (14205.00 -14255.00) *1 *1 = USD -50.00
Long = bought and holding a position at current ask price of 14225.00; To rollover, you need to sell it at current price of 14205.00 to close the position and re-open/buy at new ask price of 14255.00; while you are long/holding the position, you pay borrowing cost but the value of your underlying goes up;
In this example, if you hold your Long position throughout the rollover, the valuation of your position would go up by (14235.00 – 14205.00) * 1 * 1 = USD 30.00. Net effect of rollover = Revaluation – Rollover Adjustment = 30 – 50 = USD -20.00
For a Short position, Rollover Adjustment = (BID price of Next Month's Contract - ASK price of Current Month's Contract) x Lot Size x CFD Contract Size = (14235.00 -14225.00) *1 *1 = USD 10.00
Short = old at current bid price of 14205.00 and you need to buy back at current offer price 14225.00 to close the position, and re-open/sell at a new bid price of 14235.00
If you hold your Short position throughout the rollover, the valuation of your position would go down by (14225.00-14255.00) * 1 * 1 = USD -30.00.
Net effect of rollover = Revaluation – Rollover Adjustment = -30 + 10 = USD -20.00
So essentially the net value of a rollover is the cost of its bid-ask spread (2000 U.S. cents for CN50): 20.00 * 1 * 1 = USD 20.00
