1. Trading Bonus Policy at option500.com

Bonus Policy – to help traders starting out in CFD / FX trading online, option500.com offers a variety of bonuses and promotions to depositing customers. Every bonus is
meant to give traders an extra boost to their trading experience. Let’s have a look at how they work and how you can get them.

2. Pending Bonus (Cash Back)

option500.com may, from time to time and at its sole discretion, offer trading bonuses to specific traders. The trading bonus will be deposited into your account pending a trading volume (after receiving the bonus) of twenty times the sum of the bonus plus deposit amount for any bonus up to 50%. For example, if you deposit US$5000 and receive a Bonus of US$2500, the bonus will be released into your account after trading a volume of US$150,000. All bonuses meeting the trading volume requirement will be added upon support approval. For any bonuses between 51% – 100%, the volume required will be twenty-five times the sum of the bonus plus deposit amount. For any bonuses between 101% – 200%, the volume required will be thirty times the sum of the bonus plus deposit amount. For any bonuses above 201%, the volume required will be thirty-five times the sum of the bonus plus deposit amount.

You may withdraw your funds at any time prior reaching the volume traded needed for receiving the bonus.

3. First Trade Risk-Free Bonus Policy

option500.com may, from time to time and at its sole discretion, offer trading bonuses of 10-50% of the deposit amount (with the maximum bonus offer being $1000) to specific traders so they can open their first position using the bonus money. The First Trade Risk-Free feature offers clients their money back if their first trade expires out-of-the-money. When the trade expires out-of-the-money, the bonus policy will be exercised and the investment amount is automatically added back to the client’s balance without needing to contact support.

The First Trade Risk-Free bonus is granted only upon the first trade that is placed.Bonus Policy

The First Trade Risk-Free bonus will not be applied and will be automatically canceled in the following cases:

a. the client uses the sell back feature for the first trade

b. if the client chooses an investment amount higher than the First Trade Risk-Free bonus

You may withdraw the Bonus only after reaching a trading volume (after receiving the bonus) of thirty times the First Trade Risk-Free investment amount. For example, if you deposit US$5000 and receive a First Trade Risk Free Bonus of US$1000, the bonus will be eligible for withdrawal after trading a volume of US$30,000 is reached.

4. Immediate Cash Bonus Policy

option500.com may, from time to time and at its sole discretion, offer trading bonuses to specific traders as immediate cash into the account balance, allowing the clients to use this bonus for trading immediately.

You may withdraw the Bonus only after reaching a trading volume (after receiving the bonus) of thirty times the sum of the cash bonus and deposit amount. For example, if you deposit US$5000 and receive a Cash Bonus of US$2500, the bonus will be eligible for withdrawal after trading a volume of US$225,000 is reached.

In the case of requesting a withdrawal when the required trading volume has not been reached or in the case the client requests to close the account, the cash bonus and associated profits will be canceled and only the original deposit may be withdrawn.

5. Trade Insurance Bonus Policy

option500.com may, from time to time and at its sole discretion, offer trade insurance bonuses to specific traders. The Trade Insurance bonus allows clients to be covered on any losses when they trade a volume of up to 50% of the deposit amount, regardless of the profit level. For example, if a client deposits $5000, the client will be covered on out-of-the-money trades for the first $2500 volume traded in addition to receiving a profit on in-the-money trades.

You may withdraw the Bonus only after reaching a trading volume (after receiving the bonus) of fifteen times the deposit amount. For example, if you deposit US$5000 and receive a trade insurance bonus, the bonus will be eligible for withdrawal after trading a volume of ($5000 x 15) is reached.

In the case of requesting a withdrawal when the required trading volume has not been reached or in the case the client requests to close the account, the trade insurance bonus and any profit from the point the bonus was granted will be canceled and only the original deposit may be withdrawn.
