Dividends and Ex-dates:

Once the company sets the record date, the stock exchanges or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. fix the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks two business days before the record date. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend.

Example of profit and margin calculation

A trader decides that the American stock market will grow. S/he chooses the S&P500 index as his/her trading instrument. This index consists of 500 stocks of highly capitalized companies.

The trader buys 1 lot of S&P500 index at 1680 points. Margin requirements are defined by the following formula:

Nominal Value of the contract * Lot size * Margin size

So, margin for 1 lot of S&P500 is: 1680*25 USD*1*1/100 = 420 USD

Margin requirements for indices can increase or decrease whilst the asset price fluctuates.

Shortly afterwards, the index grows to 1695 and the trader decides to fix profit, which is calculated with the help of the following formula:

Number of minimal price changes * Tick Price* Trade volume

As a result, the profit will be: 150*$2.5*1=$375, where 150 is the difference shown in points between opening and closing prices, i.e. (opening price – closing price)/0,1 (Tick size) = (1695,0-1680,0)/0,1=15,0/0,1=150.

Oil is a tradable commodity and is widely used for production of motor fuel, dissolvent, and as an upstream material for chemical industry.

Over 100,000 contracts are concluded on commodity markets daily, which makes oil one of the most liquid and widely traded assets. Oil is perfect for both speculators, who make profit on fluctuation of the asset's price, and investors, who want to hedge against the deterioration in pricing environment on the energy market.

Key factors that affect oil's price:

Ratio between supply and demand

USA, Japan and China are major consumers of oil. Economy's slowdown leads to decrease of oil consumption in these countries, and negatively affects oil prices. Traders check the following economic factors: GDP, industrial manufacturing, consumer income and spending, retail sales, car sales etc.

Oil price is also affected by the supply provided by the key exporters, such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Iraq, Russia and OPEC countries. Any events that can affect volume of export can lead to serious oil price fluctuations. Natural disasters, wars, terrorist attacks, OPEC countries\' decisions or “shale revolution” can be considered as one of these events.

Seasonal and weather factors

Demand for oil and its derivatives also depends on seasonal factor. In summer (vacations season in the US) the demand for oil significantly increases, and Middle East consumes a lot of oil for power generation and air conditioning.

Very cold weather in winter can also lead to the increase in oil consumption in order to warm up houses, and it can affect oil price.

Oil and oil derivatives\' inventories

US Crude Oil reacts to the publications about oil inventories provided by the US EIA (Energy Information Agency). This data defines increase/decrease of oil inventories stored by American companies. A report about these reserves is published every Wednesday, and can be found on our website at https://www.mayzus.com/economic-calendar.html

Example of profit and margin calculation

A trader decides to gain profit on the biggest and the most liquid market: the oil market. While studying details of fundamental analysis, s/he arrives at the conclusion that the demand for gas in the USA will increase with the beginning of the auto season. In the USA, the auto season starts at the end of May and ends in early September. This time period coincides with the outset of the holiday season, and it is characterized by the increased use of vehicles by US citizens. As a result, the high demand for gas will support high oil prices.

Based on the technical analysis conducted on 20th of May, the trader buys one lot of US Crude Oil with the price of $95 per barrel.

Margin requirements are defined by the following formula:

Market price*Contract Size*Trade Volume*Margin size

So, margin for 1 lot of US Crude Oil is 95*100*1*2/100 = 190 USD

Margin requirements for Oil can increase or decrease whilst the asset price fluctuates.

In the middle of June, the forecast and the trader's expectations come true. The oil price goes up and reaches $100 per barrel, and the trader decides to fix profit, which is calculated with the help of the following formula:

(Close Price – Open Price)*Tick Price/Tick Size*Trade Volume

As a result, the profit will be (100 – 95)*0.1/0.001*1= 500 USD

Dividends and Ex-dates:

Once the company sets the record date, the stock exchanges or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. fix the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks two business days before the record date. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend.

Dividends and Ex-dates:

Once the company sets the record date, the stock exchanges or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. fix the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks two business days before the record date. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend.

Example of profit and margin calculation

A trader decides that the American stock market will grow. S/he chooses the S&P500 index as his/her trading instrument. This index consists of 500 stocks of highly capitalized companies.

The trader buys 1 lot of S&P500 index at 1680 points. Margin requirements are defined by the following formula:

Nominal Value of the contract * Lot size * Margin size

So, margin for 1 lot of S&P500 is: 1680*25 USD*1*1/100 = 420 USD

Margin requirements for indices can increase or decrease whilst the asset price fluctuates.

Shortly afterwards, the index grows to 1695 and the trader decides to fix profit, which is calculated with the help of the following formula:

Number of minimal price changes * Tick Price* Trade volume

As a result, the profit will be: 150*$2.5*1=$375, where 150 is the difference shown in points between opening and closing prices, i.e. (opening price – closing price)/0,1 (Tick size) = (1695,0-1680,0)/0,1=15,0/0,1=150.

Oil is a tradable commodity and is widely used for production of motor fuel, dissolvent, and as an upstream material for chemical industry.

Over 100,000 contracts are concluded on commodity markets daily, which makes oil one of the most liquid and widely traded assets. Oil is perfect for both speculators, who make profit on fluctuation of the asset's price, and investors, who want to hedge against the deterioration in pricing environment on the energy market.

MAYZUS Investment Company offers trading with two different oil grades – US Crude Oil and Brent.

Key factors that affect oil's price:

Ratio between supply and demand

USA, Japan and China are major consumers of oil. Economy's slowdown leads to decrease of oil consumption in these countries, and negatively affects oil prices. Traders check the following economic factors: GDP, industrial manufacturing, consumer income and spending, retail sales, car sales etc.

Oil price is also affected by the supply provided by the key exporters, such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Iraq, Russia and OPEC countries. Any events that can affect volume of export can lead to serious oil price fluctuations. Natural disasters, wars, terrorist attacks, OPEC countries\' decisions or “shale revolution” can be considered as one of these events.

Seasonal and weather factors

Demand for oil and its derivatives also depends on seasonal factor. In summer (vacations season in the US) the demand for oil significantly increases, and Middle East consumes a lot of oil for power generation and air conditioning.

Very cold weather in winter can also lead to the increase in oil consumption in order to warm up houses, and it can affect oil price.

Oil and oil derivatives\' inventories

US Crude Oil reacts to the publications about oil inventories provided by the US EIA (Energy Information Agency). This data defines increase/decrease of oil inventories stored by American companies. A report about these reserves is published every Wednesday, and can be found on our website at https://www.mayzus.com/economic-calendar.html

Example of profit and margin calculation

A trader decides to gain profit on the biggest and the most liquid market: the oil market. While studying details of fundamental analysis, s/he arrives at the conclusion that the demand for gas in the USA will increase with the beginning of the auto season. In the USA, the auto season starts at the end of May and ends in early September. This time period coincides with the outset of the holiday season, and it is characterized by the increased use of vehicles by US citizens. As a result, the high demand for gas will support high oil prices.

Based on the technical analysis conducted on 20th of May, the trader buys one lot of US Crude Oil with the price of $95 per barrel.

Margin requirements are defined by the following formula:

Market price*Contract Size*Trade Volume*Margin size

So, margin for 1 lot of US Crude Oil is 95*100*1*2/100 = 190 USD

Margin requirements for Oil can increase or decrease whilst the asset price fluctuates.

In the middle of June, the forecast and the trader's expectations come true. The oil price goes up and reaches $100 per barrel, and the trader decides to fix profit, which is calculated with the help of the following formula:

(Close Price – Open Price)*Tick Price/Tick Size*Trade Volume

As a result, the profit will be (100 – 95)*0.1/0.001*1= 500 USD
