Bonuses: 

Profit bonuses are transferred to a trader’s trading account indicated in the User Profile;The amount of bonuses paid to a single trader cannot exceed the specific limit defined in the rules of a particular competition.

Profit bonuses can be withdrawn via any available payment system. Profit bonuses can be withdrawn after completing certain requirements that are specified in the competition rules (for example, not earlier than in ХХ calendar days, after ХХ trades of ХХ minutes each)

The total amount of all bonuses in a competition cannot exceed its budget. If the competition budget is exceeded we will reduce the bonuses based on the difference between the actual sum of all bonuses and the budget.

Hedging is a prohibited trading strategy for fulfillment of bonus withdrawal conditions, it means that trades performed by means of hedging will not be counted in the number of trades, obligatory to fulfill the conditions for bonus withdrawal. Bonus calculation formula: 

The bonus payable to a real trading account is equal to one percent (1%) of the profit gained. For example, if a trader earns $5000, a $50 bonus will be deposited to his/her account. 

However, there are 2 bonus limitations:The amount of bonus for one trader cannot exceed $250 (so, if you earn more than 500% profit your maximum bonus will still remain $250).

The total amount of all bonuses in a particular competition cannot exceed the declared bonus budget (usually $1200). If the declared bonus budget is exceeded the bonuses will be reduced based on the difference between the actual sum of all bonuses and the declared bonus budget.

For example,  if the sum of all actual bonuses in a particular competition (actual bonus budget) amounts to $ 1500 and the total sum of the declared bonuses (declared bonus budget) is exceeded, the sum of the bonuses payable to the traders will be reduced by $300 ($1500 – $1200 = $300).

 So, the FORMULA for bonus calculation is as follows:Bonus = (1% of your profit) * (Declared bonus budget / Actual bonus budget)

 Common:

  1. If a trader receives more than $1000.00 in prizes and bonuses, he/she will be able to participate only in competitions with entry fee.
