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

What is Spread betting ?

Spread betting is tax efficient way of trading in financial instruments such as shares, indices, forex, commodities and cryptocurrencies. You take a position based on whether you think a market will rise or fall. If the position moves in your chosen direction you will make a profit. If it moves in the opposite direction you will make a loss.

Spread betting is leveraged. This means when you make a trade you are only required to pay a small deposit and not the total value of the trade. This means both your profits and losses will be magnified

Spread bets and CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 76% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading spread bets and CFDs with this provider. 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.

 

All trading involves risk.

The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account, a stocks and shares ISA or a SIPP can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
