Bonus Terms:

The bonus payable to a trader’s 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 account.

However, there are some limitations:

- The amount of bonus for one trader cannot exceed $ 250;

- Bonus can be withdrawn via any payment system available at FXOpen after making 20 trades (minimum of 10 minutes per trade). You can withdraw the bonus after 30 calendar days since the date it was paid to you. Before withdrawing the bonus you must make at leat 1 forum post in the ForexCup Competition thread in our Forum.

The total amount of all bonuses in the competition cannot exceed $ 1200. If the budget is exceeded we will reduce the bonuses based on the difference between the actual sum of all bonuses and our budget.

For example, if at the end of the competition the sum of all bonuses payable to all traders is $ 1500, the total sum of bonuses will be reduced by $ 300 ($ 1500 - $ 1200 = $ 300).

The formula for bonus calculation:

Bonus = (1% of profit) * Planned Budget / Actual Budget, where

Profit - the actual profit earned by particular trader

Planned Budget = it is $ 1200 for this particular competition

Actual Budget = the sum of all bonuses payable to all traders at the end of the competition
