The size of the affiliate commission is influenced by the referral's hedged transactions and the use of bonus funds as additional margin.
If a Referral opens a hedging position whose volume does not exceed (equals or is less than) the volume of the hedged position, a commission fee is paid only for the hedged position.
For example, if a referral opens a trade to buy 1.5 lots and after that opens two sell trades 0.4 and 0.6 lots respectively, then the commission will be charged only for the hedged volume (1.5) because it is higher than the hedging volume (1.0).
If a Referral opens a hedging position whose volume exceeds the volume of the hedged position, commission fees are paid for the hedged position in full volume, while for the hedging position a commission fee is paid only for the volume which was not overlapped.
For example, if a referral opens a trade to buy 1.5 lots and after that opens two sell trades 1.0 and 0.8 lots respectfully, then the partner will receive a commission for the hedged volume of 1.5 lots and for the difference of 0.3 lot between the hedged and hedging volumes because the hedging volume is larger.
Please bear in mind that for commission calculations, the total volume of hedged transactions for a trading instrument is considered, regardless of when and in what order those transactions were opened and closed.
The Partner receives commission fees upon completion of a transaction that was carried out with the help of the Referral's own funds. The commission fee is not paid for the transactions carried out by use of the Referral's bonus funds (if available).
