How to open your trading account

Why try demo trading?

The whole point of demo trading is to get familiar with the markets at your own pace.

As you'll be practicing under real market conditions, you'll get to see for yourself exactly what happens when prices change and learn how best to protect your trades with tools like Stop Loss.

It's also a good opportunity to get to know your trading platform. MetaTrader offers a range of indicators and timeframes designed to allow you to monitor the markets, and these can take a bit of getting used to.

By the time you're ready to move to live trading, you'll have grown the confidence to start using real money.

Remember - if you get stuck at any point or have any questions, our dedicated Customer Support team are always happy to help.

A demo account is a way to practice trading without risking any of your own money, as you'll be using virtual funds. It offers exactly the same tools and features as a live trading account, and you'll be trading under real-market conditions.

Register with us by providing just a few details above. Next, click 'Send PIN' to get your unique access code by SMS and email. Once you've got that, select 'Register Now'. We'll be in touch be email very shortly with your MyFXTM login details. You can then open your very own demo trading account from there.

Exactly the same as you can do on a live account. You can open and close positions, adjust your order types and choose from hundreds of different financial instruments. Your trading platform works exactly the same way too - the only difference is that the funds you're trading with are not real.

The features, conditions and tools are absolutely identical across all of our account types. The only difference is that you're trading with virtual money, so there's no risk involved for you.

When you open your demo trading account, you can choose how much you put in it. The maximum is $1 million - keep in mind, of course, that this isn't real money. It's all virtual.

The smallest possible amount you can start trading with is $1. Considering that this money isn't real though, you can benefit by trading bigger amounts and getting more practice in with multiple trades and markets.

Yes, you can. CFD trading on mentals, commodities and indices is available on all 3 of our demo account types.

Yes, you can. The forex market is the most liquid in the world with a daily turnover of more than $5 trillion USD and is a popular choice for new traders. Learn more about trading forex with FXTM.

Unfortunately, this is one instrument you can't practice with on our demo accounts. Once you've moved to live trading though, there's thousands of different stocks for you to access - and you'll still benefit from experimenting with other instruments before.

Afraid not, because you're trading using virtual money so your profits are virtual too. However, once you've tried and tested different strategies in demo mode, you'll be better placed to achieve potentially successful trades.
