GOLD – 1, SILVER – 10.

GAS – 5, OIL – 5.

WIG40 – 200;
SP500 – 100;

When a Participant opens a position for 100 contracts of FTSE index, the amount of the deal has to be converted to the trading volume that will count towards the Trading Volume Requirement of the Campaign. This is done by dividing the amount of the deal (100 contracts) by the divider of the instrument (20), so the deal size that will be counted toward the Trading Volume Requirement will be 100 / 20 = 5 lots.

1.6. A valid trade for Trading Volume Requirement calculation is a full round turn, closed trade that complies with all three of the following criteria:

1) the trade remained open for over the agreed period of time;

2) the profit or loss in this trade is more than the agreed minimum;

1.7. Bonus can be released to the Participant’s ownership only in full remaining amount and only after the whole Trading Volume Requirement has been met.
