Personally, think this is a much better way for FI to do promotions going forward. Surprise traders and get lots of positive energy buzzing around the forum and wider social media.
No false expectations. No announcements about potential announcements about bonus/market announcements. No negativity and disappointment flooding the forum when traders expectations aren’t met.
I wonder if this is something that they’ve discussed recently and are adopting moving forward. Wouldn’t surprise me given the stick they get (some of it deserved, some of it not).
