Rules for Calculating Bonuses

This document describes principles for calculating bonuses. The procedure for earning and  withdrawing bonuses can be found in Rules for Granting or Withdrawing Bonuses at Exness and in the conditions of specific bonus programs.

Bonuses offered as a percentage of a deposit

The bonus is credited automatically for each of the client's deposits.

The deposit is the difference between the amount of funds deposited and the amount of funds withdrawn; the amount of the bonus depends on the size of the deposit and is calculated using the following formula:

("Funds deposited" - "Funds withdrawn") х  "percentage of bonus"
 

The "percent bonus" parameter is determined in accordance with the conditions of the specific bonus program.

Let us consider examples of determining the size of the bonus for a bonus of 10% of the deposit:

Example 1. If in the first instance you deposit 1,000 USD into a trading account (i.e. total funds withdrawal at present is zero) then the total bonus will be:

(1000 - 0) х 10% = 100 USD. Therefore, Exness will credit an additional 100 USD to your trading account.

Example 2. If you deposit 1,000 USD in your trading account and then withdraw a total of 700 USD from it, then the size of the bonus would be: (1,000 — 700) х 10% = 30 USD. Accordingly, the actual amount of the bonus for your trading account would be 30 USD.

Example 3. If you deposit 1,000 USD in your trading account and then make a series of profitable trades and withdraw a total of 1,200 USD, then the bonus is canceled, because the amount of the funds withdrawn is greater than the amount of the funds deposited. (1,000 - 1,200) х 10% = - 20. Accordingly, the bonus would not be credited to your trading account as long as the amount of funds deposited is not greater than the amount of the funds withdrawn.

Bonuses offered based on trading volume

A bonus that depends on trading volume is calculated using the following formula:

"Bonus" = "lots" x "bonus amount per lot for particular instrument"*
 

Let's say we have a bonus program with the following conditions:

Bonus size for Group 1 (AUDCAD, EURUSD, USDCHF, USDJPY, GBPUSD, USDCAD, AUDCHF, EURCHF, CHFJPY, EURCAD, XAUUSD, XAUGBP, XAUEUR): 2 USD
Bonus size for Group 2 (AUDUSD, GBPAUD, EURGBP, AUDJPY, EURAUD, USDRUB, AUDNZD, EURNZD, CADJPY, CADCHF): 5 USD
Bonus size for Group 3 (EURJPY, GBPJPY, GBPCHF, AUDGBP): 8 USD
Bonus size for Group 4 (XAGUSD, XAGAUD, XAGEUR, XAGGBP): 16 USD

Volume for bonus crediting: 1 lot

Example 1:

A Client closes an order of 2.1 lots EURUSD

He receives a bonus of 2 x 2 USD = 4 USD

For 0.1 lot we don't credit a bonus, because only round lots are counted for calculation; volumes under 1 lot must be accumulated until they reach a complete lot before the bonus can be credited.

After this, the Client closes 0.9 lot USDJPY

USDJPY is from the same group as EURUSD, where we had 0.1 lot left with no bonus crediting, therefore: 0.1 + 0.9 = 1 lot x 2 USD = 2 USD

Example 2:

A Client closes an order of 5 lots USDCAD and 1 lot EURJPY

Bonus is 5 x 2 USD + 1 x 8 USD = 18 USD

Example 3:

A Client makes a deposit of 20 USD. After that he closes a position of 25 lot USDCHF, and earns a profit of 30 USD. The Bonus will be 25 x 2 USD = 50 USD

He now has 50 USD of his own funds and 50 USD of bonus funds.

The Client requests to withdraw 50 USD. After that, the bonus becomes 0.

Bonuses offered in the form of a specific number of grams of gold for a deposit

The bonus is credited automatically for each of the client's deposits.

The deposit is the difference between the sum of the deposited funds and the sum of the withdrawn funds; the amount of the bonus depends on the size of the deposit - a specific number of grams of gold is credited for every thousand deposited. This number is calculated using the following formula:

("sum of funds deposited" - "sum of funds withdrawn")
1000
х "number of grams of gold"
 

The "number of grams of gold" parameter is determined in accordance with the conditions of the specific bonus program.

 

Let us consider examples of determining the size of the bonus for a bonus of 5 grams of gold, which is the equivalent of 233.12 USD (the cost of one gram of gold is calculated using the following formula: current spot price – XAUUSD exchange rate / 31.1; here we use XAUUSD = 1,450,000 to calculate the exchange rate. Accordingly, the price of 1 gram of gold is 46.62 USD):

Example 1. If in the first instance you deposit 1,000 USD into a trading account (i.e. total funds withdrawal at present is zero) then the total bonus will be:

(1,000 - 0)/1,000 х 5 = 5 grams of gold = 233.12 USD. Accordingly, Exness will add an additional 233.12 USD to your trading account.

Example 2. If you deposit 1,000 USD in your trading account and then withdraw a total of 700 USD from it, then the size of the bonus would be: (1,000 - 700)/1,000 х 5 = 0.3 х 5 = 1.5 grams of gold = 69.93 USD. Accordingly, the actual amount of the bonus for your trading account would be 69.93 USD.

Example 3. If you deposit 1,000 USD in your trading account, make a series of profitable trades, and then withdraw a total of 1,200 USD, then the bonus is canceled, because the amount of funds withdrawn is higher than the amount of funds deposited. (1,000 - 1,200)/1000 х 5 = - 1. Accordingly, the bonus amount would not be credited to your trading account as long as the amount of funds deposited is not greater than the amount of funds withdrawn.

*Please note that the bonus is calculated in USD and then converted to the Client’s account currency.
