Oanda Desperate - Forex / CFD Trading Dying Out?

Just received an offer from Oanda. Deposit $2000, place a trade of any size, and we give you $250. WHOA! Is Forex / CFD trading really dying out?? I haven't seen the latest Forex / bucketshop numbers, but I suspect they must be way way down....

Way down, yes perhaps.

But also maybe they make much more than 10% off their customers capital investments. I'll leave it to you to figure out how...

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I thought that maybe they had me pegged as a habitual whale, and therefore the offer, but I cashed out with profits many, many times, so I don't think that's the case.

Not sure if they made the offer to all customers. In any case, easy and risk-free $250.

"Bonuses" are not new to the FX world, but it comes with a set of strict conditions and typically its capital to trade with under certain rules. It's not a gift.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would take pushing your own agenda to another thread.

The only condition is making a single trade of any size, hardly a 'strict condition'. And my decade of experience with OANDA tells me that they stand behind their words.

I am sorry you feel this way. I heard good things of Oanda and my reflection of the "bonuses" was not to criticize them as a company, their execution or operation. However, if you read the entire terms and conditions you would see that first you need to qualify, then do one trade and you are not allowed to take the funds for 30 days. I am sure that statistically speaking, during those 30 days people do trade with these funds, so companies would not offer bonuses unless it resulted in a positive ROI. My post was simply to inform people to do further due diligence for any type of offer. This was my entire "agenda".

Having said all that, I am rather surprised that a customer of Oanada with such strong sentiment towards them would choose a title for a thread that starts with "Oanda Desperate", let alone mention "Forex / bucketshop numbers".

I am sorry you found my comments offensive, and I will not post on this thread further.

Thanks,
Matt Z
