FastBrokers, one of the ECN forex brokers that I recommend, just started a special holiday bonus program and I thought some of you folks may be interested in knowing about it. Here is the gist of the special deal:
New Customers that open a live forex account before December 25, 2008 and fund it, will receive a $100 instant credit on the new account AND they will also receive a 3% bonus on funds deposited in the new account by December 25, 2008 – up to a total of $5,000 per client.
As always there seems to be a catch, so here are the details:
*The offer is valid through a selected forex dealer and systems (ECN accounts/systems not eligible), credits and bonuses are issued directly by the forex dealer at dealer`s discretion.
New customers: The $100 instant credit for a new live trading account is for trading and is non-redeemable. If the account is inactive for three (3) months, forex dealer reserves the option to reclaim the $100 or the lesser balance in the account.
New and existing customers: The 3% bonus (up to $5,000 per client) for new funds deposited through December 25, 2008 requires that the customer trade a minimum of 100 standard round turn trades in order to be eligible to withdraw any bonus money. Forex dealer, in its sole discretion, will determine if a client`s deposit and trading activity entitles them to retain the bonus credit.
