Positions in an ASX Equity CFD can be subject to corporate action adjustments. See Trading information
1There are limited circumstances in which ASX may expire and delist contracts. This is only likely to occur where the contract has open positions in the following situations:
There is a lack of liquidity in the contract;
The underlying has been delisted; or
Access to the data of the underlying instrument becomes permanently unavailable (for example, where an index provider ceases to calculate an index or terminates the index provider agreement with ASX).
If the above action were to be taken, ASX would provide as much notice to the market as possible to enable the closing out of open positions.
