Questions and Answers for our Distributed Forex Fund.
What exactly is it that you do?
We manage a distributed forex fund which employs aggressive investment strategies with the goal of outperforming the market averages. Individual investors may participate with his or her own brokerage account. By a process and technology known as copy trading,
the participant automatically copies our trades onto their own account. In other words, when we buy, you buy. When we sell, you sell. This is all done in proportion to what you
have in your account your own brokerage account.
We have two goals for this distributed forex fund. First, beat the market averages. Second, make money under every type of market condition to the extent possible. If you share
these goals, joining our program will allow you to piggy-back off of our trades. Our aim is to provide a professional hedge fund like experience with top-notch service and results.
What are your results?

How do I get started?
Follow these 3 simple steps to get started and you could be generating passive income starting today.
- Create a dreamfire52 account. This takes less than 1 minute. No credit card necessary.
- Create an OANDA trading account. You will likely need to supply OANDA with proof of identity. We recommend you open the account in U.S Dollars. Oanda allows you to open up accounts in a variety of currencies.
Get the Account number and API Token from Oanda and put them into your dreamfire52 account settings, then turn auto trading on. The account number is found in the "Manage Funds" link
after you login to your Oanda account. Then go to “Manage Account” up at the top. Then hit the “Manage API Access” link. After you generate an API token, cut and paste it to your dreamfire52 account.
Finally, on your dreamfire52 settings, Select "Automatic Copy Trading is turned ON".
That is it! After this, your setup is complete and we will trade for you while you work or sleep.
How can I independently verify your results?
You can verify your balance at any time in real time in your own brokerage account. OANDA offers a host of platforms including a mobile app that you can use to monitor your trades and balances. In addition, the host
account is registered and publically verified at MyFXBook.com which is a third-party organization not affiliated with dreamfire52 or Oanda.
You can go to link to verify our track record
and see all the relevant statistics of the host account for the entire span since creation it on July 13th, 2022. Note that the daily percentages will vary from our results page as MyFXBook does not count open trades. They update every 4 minutes while we update our site about every half hour.

What if I don't know anything about FOREX?
Our distributed forex fund is for beginners and experts alike. Although you can sign up and trade our system with absolutely no experience, We caution everyone to know the possible risks and rewards of FOREX trading. We would prefer that
you understand the basic concepts of leverage and risk so that you can better understand whether or not this is for you.
What is FOREX? »
What is copy trading or mirror trading?
The concept of "Copy Trading" or "Mirror Trading" is not new. It has been around for over a decade. Copy Trading is a FOREX strategy that allows investors
to copy the trades of experienced and successful FOREX investors. This type of trading was initially only available to institutional clients but was
later made available to retail investors. There are many sites that provide mirror trading but you
need to be careful. Many of these "opportunities" either charge by the trade or employ some other fee structure that is not beneficial for
the client. Most employ computerized strategies and some use highly misleading martingale strategies which "work" for a period of time
before losing big. We offer a more personal and flexible approach. Our job is to beat the market through aggressive investment strategies and capital defense on a consistent basis.
Our fees are reasonable and we really enjoy trading for our clients or helping them to become successful traders on their own.
How much time do I need to spend on this program?
After the initial setup, trades occur automatically while you work or sleep. You don't need to do anything.
What do I need to get started?
If you wish to move forward, you need to open an OANDA trading account. My software only runs through OANDA. Why OANDA? I have used many
different brokers and I prefer OANDA for reliability and pricing. Their service is pretty good and I like the fact that they cannot invest
customer funds. I am not associated with OANDA in any way and do not get any type of kick back if you open an account. When you are ready, you can literally sign up in minutes. Here is the link:
OANDA sign up
. I suggest that you have at least $500 in this account, but if you
want to use less for the trial period that is fine. After your OANDA account is setup, sign up for the free trial
You will be directed to supply us with the API-Token from your new OANDA
account. After we test the API token, we will turn on the system. That is all there is to it. The entire process is fast and easy and you could literally be trading today!
Can I use my broker instead of OANDA?
Not at this time. We specifically wrote our software for the OANDA V20 API platform so you must have an OANDA account to use my service.
Fortunately, you can open an OANDA account in minutes with a small amount of money. We have no affiliation with OANDA. We simply
like their platform, their fees, and their service. They have been around for a long time and have a good reputation.
We also like the fact that they do not invest client funds like some brokerages do.
What is your fee structure?
We have a "pay as you go" structure. This means that you pay for each month ahead of time and are under no obligation to continue when the month expires.
You may un-hook from my system and any time for any reason nearly instantly. If you don't make money, we know you won't stick around.
Our fees are percentage based so that both large and small traders can profit from the system. Specifically 1.00% of the 20 day average of your account. If your 20 day account
average is $2,000, then your monthly fee is $20.

Will I make the same percentage as the host account?
There is a slight delay on the client trades so that your entry and exit points will not be exactly the same as the host account. You may make more or less
than the host account.
Can I use that account to make my own trades?
No, it is not recommended, however, OANDA makes it easy to create sub-accounts within an account. If you want to
do your own trading and also use my system, the best way is to simply create an OANDA sub-account and trade it as you like while I trade the other sub-account with
my system. This is a great feature that OANDA has to create as many sub-accounts as you want. For those of you who like to do your own trading, this is a great option.
Do you hold my money or does the broker?
Your broker account is your own account. We cannot make deposits or withdrawals into your account. We cannot change your personal information. The API-token allows my
system to trade the account, nothing more. You can revoke the token at any time and we will no longer be able to trade your account. For more details on how the Oanda V20 REST API works. Click Here
You can trade your OANDA account with or without my system. OANDA is the custodian of the money. See their site for details.
If you want to make a withdrawal, you simply go on their site and make the withdrawal.
We have found that it usually takes only a few days by debit card. We are not affiliated with OANDA in any way. Before withdrawing your money turn off the dreamfire52 automatic trading because OANDA
requires that trades be closed before a withdrawl can be made.
How do I pay my taxes on my gains?
There is plenty of information available on the web regarding this topic, but we are NOT tax specialists so we cannot advise you on how to declare this income. We will only summarize our understanding as follows:
Similar to stocks, in the U.S. and other countries, taxes must be paid annually on currency gains.
These gains are generally considered a short term capital gain but in most circumstances you can have a 60/40 mix of Long vs short term capital gains.
According to wikipedia - "This is the most common way that forex traders file forex profits. Under this tax treatment, 60% of total capital gains are taxed at 15% and the remaining 40% of total capital gains are taxed at your current income tax bracket, which could currently be as high as 35%."
The nice thing is that currently you do not need to report every trade as is done with stocks. That would be very cumbersome. You are only required to record the total gain or loss during the year. This number can be found on the reports provided by OANDA on their web site. You will not be sent a 1099 form in most cases
for currency trading. Login to OANDAs web site to view available reports and statements. We record the number using Turbo-Tax for our own taxes.
Others that we know send their information to a licensed CPA. You will need to do your own research or consult a licensed CPA for further information
with regards to taxes.
How do I deposit/withdraw money from my account?
Simply log in to your OANDA account and follow the directions to withdraw or deposit. Note that you must close all of your positions before withdrawing your money. You should also turn the
system off until the money has been withdrawn to avoid opening new positions. In our experience with Oanda, it usually takes a few days for the money to appear in my checking account once a withdrawl is
made via debit card. You can view the status of the withdrawl on Oanda's web site. We have found that deposits using a debit card are nearly instantaneous.
Can you guarantee a profit?
dreamfire52 cannot guarantee a profit. Trading is inherently unpredictable and it is not for
everyone. Even for experienced traders, large losses are possible.
Do you trade your own money?
dreamfire52 owners and operators all trade their own money. Having "skin in the game" means that our traders participate in the same aggressive investing strategy as our clients.
What are the cancelation rules?
We use a pay-as-you-go system on a monthly basis. You pay in advance for the month. Before your month expires you are free to subscribe again or let it expire. If your account expires,
we will not open new trades. We will only close out existing trades that we opened. You can re-activate the account by making a payment.
Your OANDA account is your own. You can keep that account open and trade with or without my system, or you can close it as desired. If you decide to turn off the system, you must make sure to
close any existing open trades.
Are you a financial advisor?
No, dreamfire52 are not registered financial advisors. We are retail traders who have technology which allows our members to to mirror our trades for a monthly fee through a process called copy trading or mirror trading.
Nothing more. We do not advise on types of investments you should be making. We do not advise on taxes. We do not advise on other types of investments. Our job is to trade
the host account in the best manner that we can and allow clients to follow along if they want to.
