GFM Trader’s Withdrawal Policy and Bonus Redemption
In order to redeem bonus credits traders are first obligated to meet a volume requirement on their account which the payment of bonus credits is conditioned on.
As per the trading conditions provided, in order to make a withdrawal, you need to fulfill a minimum trade volume of forty (40) times the bonus amount. Note that traders who received and used bonuses are not eligible to withdraw funds until they have met their trading volume requirements.
The general volume requirement on the customers’ account requires that a customer trades a total account volume which is determined according to the bonus conditions given to you by the customer services representative. You must note that promotions are subject to change and accordingly the information you receive regarding your trading bonus and prerequisite volumes to be traded are thus a part of this agreement. This condition is calculated from the point at which the bonus credit is first given.
If a customer receives multiple bonus credits, the volume requirement is calculated one bonus credit at a time, from the earliest to the most recent bonus issued to the account. It is calculated based on the turnover at the time the bonus was issued.
At no time can a customer/client receive an award or bonus and instantly close their account. Bonus and promotion are incentives for a client to make continued trades. Once a client accepts a bonus or award, they agree to keep their account active for a minimum of 90 additional days and to reach the volume level as specified above.
The date of any promotion will be considered the date on the email sent to you and logged in our computers.
All bonus money will be processed as quickly as possible. We will always try to award the bonus within 24 hours on banking days and when possible. Sometimes, it just is not feasible.
All bonus will be awarded at the end of the promotion cycle and at the close of the trade.
GFM Trader will not be held responsible or accountable for a delay in the award of a promotion or bonus.
All promotions, bonuses, awards and other advertising specials have limitations.
If limits are not printed on the promotion they are covered by the policy below.
The maximum award based on trades shall not exceed the average of the client’s trades in the last 90 days.
Clients receiving bonuses must note that the broker is setting aside the bonus you received as collatoral to the market. This is what gives you
the opportunity to trade with bonuses. Accordingly the broker is expecting you to fulfill your volume with profit and to trade more so
that the bonus given to the markets as collatoral will be covered with your trading volume. If you wish to withdraw before you fulfill your
trading volume the broker has to penalize you for the bonus given to you from your balance in order to cover that collatoral to the market.
At no time will any award or bonus or incentive exceed the total amount of real funds deposited by a client in a year cycle from the date of their first deposit.
Insured trades allow traders to benefit from trading without any risk of losses.
Insured trades are evaluated upon the bonus trading volume coefficient however please note that insured trades are not included in the trading volume calculations.

Deposits and withdrawals may be transferred from us to you and vice versa either directly or through a payment service provider chosen by you subject to the noted clauses in this section.
