2.2. ORDERS – INSTRUCTIONS AND BASIS OF DEALINGS
Reception and Execution of Transactions
The Company may, in certain circumstances, accept instructions, by telephone via the Company’s Dealing Room, provided that the Company is satisfied, at its full discretion, of the Client’s identity and the Company is further also satisfied with the clarity of instructions. In case of an Order received by the Company in any means other than through the Trading Platform, the Order will be transmitted by the Company to the Trading Platform and processed as if it was received through the Trading Platform. It is understood that an Order will not be affected until it is actually considered received by the Company. It is noted that in this Agreement, instructions and orders have the same meaning.
In the event that the Company wishes to confirm in any manner any instructions and/or Orders and/or communications sent through the telephone, it reserves the right to do so. The Client accepts that there is a risk of misinterpretation or mistakes in the instructions or Orders sent through the telephone, regardless of what caused them, including, among others, technical failures.
Once the Client’s instructions or Orders are received by the Company, they cannot be revoked, except with the Company’s written consent which may be given at the Company’s sole and absolute discretion. The Company reserves its right not to accept Client’s Orders, in its absolute discretion, and in such a case the Company shall not be obliged to give a reason but it shall promptly notify the Client accordingly.
The Customer places his market request at the prices he sees on his terminal/platform and the execution process is initiated. Due to the high volatility of the market as well as the internet connectivity between the customer terminal and the server, the prices requested by the customer and the current market price may change, during this process. The Customer has the right to use a Power of Attorney to authorize a third person (representative) to act on behalf of the customer in all business relationships with the Company. The Power of Attorney should be provided to the Company accompanied by all identification documents of the representative. If there is no expiry date, the Power of Attorney will be considered valid until the written termination by the customer.
The Company uses it’s reasonable endeavors to execute any order promptly, but in accepting the Client’s orders the Company does not represent or warrant that it will be possible to execute such order or that execution will be possible according to the Client’s instructions. In case the Company encounters any material difficulty in carrying out an order on Client’s behalf, for example in case the market is closed and/or due to illiquidity in financial instruments and other market conditions, the Company shall promptly notify the Client. The Client agrees that the Company may execute an order on Client’s behalf outside a regulated market and that the Company’s order execution policy will not apply when the Client places a specific instruction.
Orders can be placed, executed, changed or removed only within the operating (trading) time and shall remain effective through the next trading session. The Client’s Order shall be valid and in accordance with the type and time of the given Order, as specified. If the time of validity of the Order is not specified, it shall be valid for an indefinite period. The Company shall record telephone conversations, without any prior warning (unless required to do so by Applicable Regulations), to ensure that the material terms of a Transaction and/or order placed by the customer and/or any other material information relating to a transaction are properly recorded. Such records will be the Company’s property and will be accepted by the customer as evidence of his orders or instructions. The Company may use recordings and/or transcripts thereof for any purpose which it deems desirable. The Company may require the Client to limit the number of open positions which the Client may have with the Company at any time and the Company may in its sole discretion close out any one or more Transactions in order to ensure that such position limits are maintained. The position limits will be notified in advance to the Client either through the Company’s website or trading platforms. If any underlying asset of the Financial Instrument becomes subject to a specific risk resulting in a predicted fall in value, the Company reserves the right to withdraw the specific financial instrument from the Company’s trading platform. The Company has the right to set control limits in relation to Client’s orders at its own and absolute discretion. Such limits may be amended, removed or added and may include without limitation:
controls over maximum order amount and size;
b. controls over the electronic systems and/or trading platforms to verify for example the Client’s identity during the receipt of the order; or
c. any other limits, parameters or controls which the Company may deem required to be implemented in accordance with Applicable Regulations.
There may be restrictions on the number of Transactions that the Client can enter into on any one day and also in terms of the total value of those Transactions when using an Electronic Service. The Client acknowledges that some Markets place restrictions on the types of orders that can be directly transmitted to their electronic trading systems. These types of orders are sometimes described as synthetic orders. The transmission of synthetic orders to the Market is dependent upon the accurate and timely receipt of prices or quotes from the relevant Market or market data provider. The Client acknowledges that a Market may cancel a synthetic order when upgrading its systems, trading screens may drop the record of such an order, and the Client enters such orders at his own risk. The Client shall refer to the Company’s website for details of the restrictions / limits imposed on Transactions performed through its electronic systems and/or trading platforms.
In case where the client has any open positions on the ex-dividend day for any of the underlying assets of the financial instrument, the Company has the right to close such positions at the last price of the previous trading day and open the equivalent volume of the underlying financial instrument at the first available price on the ex-dividend day. In this case, the Company will inform the client via the internal mail of the said adjustment and no client consent will be required.
Confirmations for all Transactions that have been executed in the Client’s Trading Account on a trading day will be available via Client’s online Account through the Trading Platform as soon as the transaction is executed. It is Client’s responsibility to notify the Company if any confirmations are incorrect. Confirmations shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on the Client, unless the Client places his/her objection in writing within five (5) Business Days. The Client might request to receive the Account statement monthly or quarterly via email, by providing such a request to the client support department, but the Company is not obliged to provide the Client with the paper Account statement. The Account statement is provided at the expense of the client.
2.3. Authorization of third person to give instructions on behalf of a Client
The Client has the right to authorize a third person to give instructions and/or Orders to the Company or to handle any other matters related to this Agreement, provided that the Client has notified the Company in writing that such a right shall be exercised by a third party and that this person is approved by the Company and fulfills all of Company’s conditions to allow this.
In case the Client has authorized a third person as mentioned in Section 7.3.1 above, it is agreed that in the event that the Client wishes to terminate the authorization, it is the Client’s full responsibility to notify the Company of such decision in writing. In any other case, the Company will assume that the authorization is still ongoing and will continue accepting instructions and/or Orders given by the authorized person on behalf of the Client.
The Company will quote prices at which it is prepared to deal with the Client. Save where:
(a) The Company exercises any of its rights to close out a Transaction; or
(b) a Transaction closes automatically,
it is Client’s responsibility to decide whether or not he wishes to deal at the price quoted by the Company. Company’s prices are determined by the Company in the manner set out in the enclosed terms.
Each price shall be effective and may be used in a dealing instruction prior to the earlier of its expiration time and the time, if any, at which it is otherwise withdrawn by the Company. A price may not be used in a dealing instruction after such time. Each price shall be available for use in a dealing instruction for a transaction with a principal amount not to exceed a maximum determined by the Company. The Client acknowledges that these prices and maximum amounts may differ from prices and maximum amounts provided to other customers of the Company and may be withdrawn or changed without notice. The Company may in its sole discretion and without prior notice to the Client immediately cease the provision of prices in some or all currency pairs and for some or all value dates at any time. When the Company quotes a price, market conditions may move between Company’s sending of the quote and the time the Client’s order is executed. Such movement may be in Client’s favor or against it. Prices that may be quoted and/or traded upon, from time to time, by other market makers or third parties shall not apply to trades between the Company and the Client.
2.5 REFUSAL TO EXECUTE ORDERS
The Company has the right, at any time and for any reason and without giving any notice and/or explanation, to refuse, at its discretion, to execute any Order, including without limitation in the following cases:
a. If the Company has adequate reasons to suspect that the execution of an Order is part of an attempt to manipulate the market, trading on inside information, relates to money laundering activities or if it can potentially affect in any manner the reliability, efficiency, or smooth operation of the Trading Platform.
b. If the Client does not have sufficient available funds deposited with the Company or in his bank account to pay the purchase price of an Order along with the respective fees and commissions necessary to carry out the transaction in the Trading Platform. In the event that the Company does refuse to execute an order, such refusal will not affect any obligation which the Client may have towards the Company or any right which the Company may have against the Client or his assets.
c. If the order is a result of the use of inside confidential information (insider trading)
It is understood that any refusal by the Company to execute any order shall not affect any obligation which the client may have towards the Company or any right which the Company may have against the customer or his assets.

This will insure that the account is compliant and up to the standards of our KYC and AML policies, as required by law. There is no fee to withdraw via credit card so long as the account didn’t fall into our non-use or dormancy rules, however any withdrawal using bank transfer will accompany a processing fee of 25 of the base currency (minimum $25 value).
All withdrawals will be returned to the same source from which they arrived. Transfers to any other accounts are forbidden. Only to and from the original source
Limits on total deposits may be imposed by the company at its own discretion.
Once a withdrawal request is submitted it can take Bit Markets up to 3 business days to process the request, unless the account was verified according to the conditions explained above (prior to opening the account in which case the withdrawal will be guaranteed to be processed based on the below rules:
Accounts with an initial deposit or total deposits LESS than $5000 will have one withdrawal per 30 days.
Accounts with an initial deposit or total deposits MORE than $5000 will have two withdrawals per 30 days
Accounts with an initial deposit or total deposits MORE than $10,000 will have four withdrawals per 30 days
Withdrawal requests will be processed Tuesday through Friday between 8am-3pm GMT). Once the request has been approved please allow an additional 5-7 days for the funds to show in your account. Bit Markets reserves the rights to charge an additional $10 + 12% for a withdrawal of any kind if the account has laid dormant for 1 month or more since being opened whereby not one trade was opened since opening and funding the account or in the event where the account has laid dormant for 3 months or more. The $10 + 12% fee will be on each and every withdrawal required by the company in order to complete the request. On Mondays, we do not execute withdrawals.
If the customer used 2 credit card deposits or more, each of those deposits will be credited back to the customer, less the $10 + 12% fee for each. In the event where Clients wish to withdraw their balance without having traded on the platform will be subject to up to $10 + 12% handling fees which would be determined at the Company’s sole discretion when the account is verified in advance and if not the fee will be no less than 12% + $25. Any other withdrawal done by other means of e-wallets will carry with them a 4% fee.
The minimum withdrawal is 100 of the base currency of the customer’s account. The cost of withdrawals once the account is verified and is not subject to the non use fee is $25 or 1.25% of the withdrawal sum (the greater of the two). In addition, unless the account is a “standard account” or higher, the account will only be permitted to withdraw 1 time per 30 days regardless of amount. Account types are determined only by the deposit amounts (initial deposit unless otherwise noted).
Withdrawals of profits will only be processed when 20 trades or volume in the amount of 10 times the deposit amount (trade volume must then be greater than the deposit value), the greater in sum of volume of the two, are performed. Failure to execute this amount of trading will render the account as fraud, an attempt at fraud, or otherwise nullifies gains.
All withdrawals that exceed the initial deposit by credit card profits will be withdrawn by wire transfer/ online wallets. It is the client’s responsibility to provide the transfer details in advance of the withdrawal request or transfer maybe delayed until such information is provided.
The company bears all responsibility in this case to return the original amount to the customer. Profits will otherwise be nullified. If however, these conditions were met and profits remain in the account, the customer will be able to withdraw said funds in full based on the above fees and conditions and assuming the account has been verified.
The company reserves the right to charge a non-use fee if the account, from opening, lay dormant whereby a dormant account is one which has produced less than 20 activities/trades of $25 minimum and thereafter but prior to the end of 3 months time, a withdrawal is requested. The non use fee will be determined at a rate of 12% +$10 for each credit card transaction made.
Dormancy fees for account inactive for 3 months or longer will be charged $25 (25 EUR for EUR based account) per month of inactivity where the account was not active in any trading of any kind.
Bit Markets Bonus Policy
Bit Markets offers a number of attractive reward features to its new and regular customers. Bonuses and one time trading credits rewarded to customers are part of Bit Markets’s promotions program. These bonuses are limited time offers and the terms and conditions associated with any bonus rewards are subject to change.In order to withdraw your full bonus, you will be required to execute a minimum trading volume of 40 times for every $1 bonus. The bonus can only be withdrawn when the preceding stipulation has been fully met and fulfilled.
The withdrawal of funds from an account can not be completed until the bonus conditions have been satisfied. Any indication of fraud, manipulation, cash-back arbitrage, or other forms of deceitful or fraudulent activity based on the provision of the bonus will nullify the account and any and all profits or losses garnered. Further to the above, it is agreed that as a precaution and due to the need for fraud protection, no withdrawal of any amount from the account will be allowed until the bonus volume requirement has been met if the bonus provided exceeded 25% of the deposited amount. This includes both the funds of the customer and the bonus provided.
It is therefore the right of the company to refuse a withdrawal of customer funds IF said requirements have not been met. The company, can from time to time decide to allow a withdrawal, if it sees fit to do so, but is under no obligation to fulfill this request if the customer agrees to the terms and conditions of the bonus.
“Cash-Back” promotions where volume triggers the cash-back rebate (like in the Christmas promotion from Nov-Dec 2013) will be provided as a bonus at just 10x volume. Terms of this promotion will not include volume on ladder or turbo (30, 60, or 120second) options. The availability of the promotion will be based on what is listed on the promotion itself.
*Ladder options and all volume executed on ladder options will not count towards bonus volume requirements needed for a withdrawal on ANY bonus provided regardless of the promotion or otherwise listed.
Social Media promotions where the customer is to receive a free $25 or $50 cash rebate into an account must be based on the withdrawal terms, dormancy rules, minimum trade requirements and all clauses of these terms and conditions. Without derogating from the above, the customer agrees to act in good faith and places trades with the funds as these funds are not meant as a cash payment but rather a placement of funds for the purpose of trading.
The customer agrees to place trades with these funds based on the minimums of all the clauses of this agreements. It is expected that the customer will make at least 10x the cash amount received in the account in trading volume before any withdrawal will be honored and this as stated above is without derogating any term in this agreement. Furthermore, if the customer has never had a funded account with the company, it is required that the customer create such an account and fund it with the minimum deposit requirements.
