The Matrix Club is an invitation-only club for financial trading enthusiasts. Together we learn the principles of technical analysis, fundamental analysis, financial mathematics, money management, trading psychology and everything that has to do with the world of trading.
Members who do not want to take an active part in the events are also welcome.
The Club is teaching live how to trade.
Trading will be done on the Club Account by the Club Treasury, not a Demo Account but a Real account.
In order to participate in the Club Educational Activities, participation in the Club trading account is required, with a deposit of € 1,000 (plus € 25 admin fee). The duration of the deposit is one year and is automatically extended by 1 year without prior notice (in the case of absence of different communication at least 30 days before the end of the year
The statistically planned profit (the “Interest”) is 6% p.a. On the top of the profit from trading, since this is a private club (no MLM or structural sales), all members benefit from the growth of the club with a “Bonus”. Please note that Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
The more members we have, the better conditions we have with the bank and we can share them with our members. Therefore, in addition to the deposit profit (the “Interest”), the member receives a “Monthly Bonus” depending on the growth of the members in the Club.
50% of this Monthly Bonus is distributed to the members as Available Bonus (Bonus Account).
The additional 50% are booked into the Compound Account (Re-Deposit Account).
This bonus is automatically allocated by the system. At the end of each month, the system automatically calculates this bonus and pays the members between the 20th and 25th of the following month.
THE BONUS AMOUNT
The calculation is based on a member growth for 2020 to 4,000 members, with a deposit of one Thousand € each. With these figures, our experts foresee a monthly bonus of 0.10% to 0.80% of the club's total deposit capital. The distribution of the bonus depends on the seniority of the membership.
The membership depends on the seniority of the member, according the date of club joining, generating the following categories:
For more information about the membership, please refer to the Article IV.
THE NEW CLUB OPENING
The club intends to launch new products based on the financial analysis of other markets.
New Clubs can be opened on a geographical base, as well as a personal or business or common interests relationships network. Accordingly, each member can promote his own club upon request, qualification and approval by the Matrix Club. A basic requirement for a new Club opening is the indication of the Trailblazers and Supporters potential members.
Of course, the New Club Founder (the Sponsor) will be the most senior in his own Club.
ARTICLE II. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The mission of The Matrix Club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop Financial trading skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.
In order to carry out this purpose, this club shall:
ARTICLE III. DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES
The organization will be composed of enthusiasts about financial trading, Foreign Exchange market, Commodities, Futures, Index, Contract for Difference Markets, interested in Technical and Fundamental analysis, ready, willing and able to attend courses organized by the Club for its members and to contribute with a deposit to create a common fund (closed and private) to be traded by a Trader Manager for educational purposes. Such amount has not to be detrimental to the members family life and for 2020 it has been decided in the amount of one thousand euro only, to be bond for one year. The Club Trader is not liable for any loss related to the Trading activity of these funds, because trading will be performed for educational purposes only and not as a Financial activity. Vice-versa, profit from trading will be redistributed between the Club, The Trader (performance fee) and the Member.
The organization shall strive to foster among the members to understand, appreciate and practice the principle of a cautious and in a medium-long term fruitful financial trading, through a proper Technical analysis based decision and proper Money management.
Classes of membership
The individual membership of this club may be divided into Six classifications: Founders, Trailblazer, Supporters, Contributing, Associates, Regular.
The Founders are the persons who decided to create this Club, founded it and paid all the software, infrastructural, legal and marketing expenses. They are rewarded with a life membership, the Office positions of President, Vice President and Treasurer and the right to vote.
The Trailblazers are those persons who believed in this project, deciding to participate in a significant way with a contribution bigger than a specific amount, decided by the Founders. They have the right to attend and to contribute in the Club Committee and the General Assembly Meeting, but without voting right.
The other memberships are for those who want to participate to the Club Trading life and courses, with the right to attend the General Assembly Meeting, without the voting right.
For the avoidance of doubt and the sake of clarity, we hereby confirm that Founders only have voting right, in order to modify this Statute, to accept or reject new members, to expel old members, to call the General Assembly, to summon the Committee and to regulate the day-by-day Club’s life. We understand that this approach does not necessarily correspond with what most people consider as “representative democracy”, but this Club does not want to be a place to exercise political rights; we are an educational forum. The Club governance must be responsive to educational requests as well as to fast market fluctuation, being the same Club dealing with the common deposit for the benefits of the members.
All individual members of this club shall be at least 18 years of age.
