Here’s another potential $200 bonus for placing a trade in newly opened account at Forex.com by July 31st. The application seems to suggest the backend is also run by Gain Financial, same as with Zecco Forex. The promotion code used is CashAd05. The offer appears open to all, as there is a banner linking directly the bonus page from the Forex.com home page.
The cost for a trade can be held under $10 if you simply do a quick buy and sell roundtrip trade. Use the demo program before trading with real money, so that you properly understand the effect of lot sizes and leverage. FX trading can be very tricky. The fine print:
*To qualify for cash bonus, you must open and fund a new FOREX.com trading account by July 31, 2009. After first trade is initiated, cash bonus will be deposited to your account within 3-5 business days. Accounts transferred from other businesses that principally operate as a forex dealer, futures commission merchant, or securities broker-dealer are eligible to receive an additional $50. FOREX.com may request documentation to prove account withdrawal or transfer such as, but not limited to, a copy of your account statement no older than 30 days. Initial deposit can be withdrawn at any point. To withdraw cash bonus, initial deposit must not be withdrawn for a minimum of 90 days from the first trade. FOREX.com reserves the right to deny bonus payment if customer does not meet FOREX.com account opening procedures or the terms and conditions of this offer. FOREX.com reserves the right to determine cases of promotion abuse. Existing FOREX.com customers who have funded and traded are not eligible to receive this promotion. This offer is available to self-directed trading accounts only. Managed accounts and accounts referred by an Introducing Broker are not eligible. Limit one cash bonus per customer.
