I've started some accounts with no deposit bonus. FBS is really hard to get, as they require us to trade 5 lot, 0.05 per time. I managed to doouble to initial 100$ over 90 days. It is really fun to trade with bonuses, instead of demo accounts..
Irrelevant information though, because that isn't what the discussion is about.
The discussion is:
$40 to $1000 Challenge
If you feel you can do it, then please feel free to open a LIVE account with a simple $40.00 USD starting deposit.
Using a deposit bonus isn't the same thing as putting $40.00 USD of your own money into a trading account.
Using a $100.00 bonus with your $40.00 USD Deposit would give you a starting balance of $140.00 in total with the bonus.
Once you create the live account showing a $40.00 USD deposit (no deposit bonus or other such nonsense), then you will need to create a MyFXBook fully validated stats page for the account, and post it here for everyone else to view.
Open all the statistics data for the account so everyone can see the account results.
Numerous people SAY they can do it, or that they've done it, or some other nonsense.
The reality of the situation however, is that very few people can actually complete this kind of challenge successfully, and then when they fail, they blame it on the markets or some other nonsense.
If you want to be profitable, make profitable trades.
