What is a Demo trading account ?

A demo account is a version of the real platform that allows you to trade products and get familiar with the functionality of using a real platform, but without taking any risk. All funds made or lost are virtual.

Why use a Demo trading account ?

New traders can benefit from simulated trading and get a realistic experience of what it would be like to trade real funds on a live platform, before they decide to risk any real funds. You can use the demo for as long as you require, this will ensure that if you decide to open a live account you will be familiar with the system and the process for online trading.

 

Demo trading accounts are also useful for experienced traders that want try out new trading strategies in a risk free environment.

 

The demo trading account  allows you to trade CFDs and Spread bets with access to over 17,000 markets to practice on, including shares indices, FX, commodities and cryptocurrencies.

Important points

A demo account provides a risk-free environment for you to try our web trading platforms. While much of the functionality of the live platform features in the demo, there are key differences to be aware of, including (but not limited to):

  • Trades made through the demo account will not be subject to slippage, interest and dividend adjustments, or out of hours price movements

  • Trades may be rejected if you have insufficient funds to open them, but, unlike on a live account, will never be rejected on the grounds of size or price

  • You will not be charged for chart packages on a demo account

  • Trades will not be closed if you have insufficient funds to cover margin and running losses, which can happen on a live account

This is by no means an exhaustive list, therefore before opening a live account we recommend you read the information available on our website as well as the Customer Agreement to ensure that you are aware of the features of a live account

You should consider whether you understand how spread bets and CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. Professional clients can lose more than they deposit.
