CFDs on oil, gas, copper, indices, bonds and soft commodities offered by Dukascopy are non-expiring spot traded derivatives. The spot prices are influenced by the prices of the current futures contract of the corresponding commodity, index or bond (full instrument list is provided below), these futures are traded on the exchanges.
When the underlying future contract is due to expire, the CFD is switched to another contract. Due to this switch, CFD price is changing to the price of the new futures contract. Such switch affects all the open positions. The price switch of CFD from old to new futures contract occurs during the market break of the adjustment date. In order to compensate price difference between old and new contracts the adjustment is applied as debit/credit to the account.
The adjustment is done at least one day prior to the expiry date of the current future contracts.
At 13:50 GMT summer / 14:50 GMT winter time on the respective days Dukascopy determines adjustment rate for the concerned CFD as the price difference between frontal and next month futures.
