22. POLICY REGARDING BONUSES
22.1 Definition of a trading bonus:
A trading bonus is an added value to your deposit and it provides you with more funds to use when you are trading. Trading bonuses come in the form of a one-time added value to your deposit. When you fund your account, the Company matches your real money deposit by a certain amount of percentage in accordance with your deposit. Bonus percentage may vary, as it depends on Company’s promotion.
22.2 Duration of the bonus
The trading bonus can be granted for a fixed period or for an indefinite period on a permanent basis. This
is subject to the terms and conditions of the Company granting the trading bonus and your compliance with
the terms and conditions.
If the Client fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the trading bonus, the trading bonus may be withdrawn by the Company before the agreed deadline.
A trading bonus gives you great value and extra trading leverage. With all of the above being mentioned; when you trade with bonus leverage you need to be cautious. It is truly appealing, but there is a downside. You may close higher trades and make more money initially (or in the long run), but you can also lose a lot more money.
