Demo Accounts

Can I open a demo account?

To gain trading experience without risk, you can open a demo account at any time. For new traders we always recommend that they use a demo account to test their strategies before opening a live account.

What are the advantages of trading on a demo account?

A demo account gives you the opportunity to practice trading without cost or risk.   There is no real money involved but it will help you to become familiar with executing transactions, as well as the specific features and functionality of our platforms.   Please note that execution speed is slower than you will experience in our ultra-low latency ‘live’ trading environment.

Is a deposit required to open a Demo account?

There are no costs or charges associated with demo accounts. Your demo account will contain virtual funds which you can use to practice with.

Does a demo account expire after a certain period of time?

A demo account will remain active so long as it continues to be used. All demo accounts will expire, however, following two weeks of inactivity.
