Hi

Question relating to spread betting

I am trying to compare the cost of these bet types for longer term trades (say 3 - 6 months) and struggling to understand the dividend aspect. For Rolling bets I will have to be c 2.75% p.a. financing charge + will be credited 90% of the dividend.

For futures, there are no financing charges but I've read that the dividend is reflected in the price/cost of carry? What does this mean. Does this in effect mean the dividend is 0% or does it mean it is 0% but the futures prices has already increased by the estimated dividend between now and expiry?

Thanks
