Even if you’re brand-new to the financial markets, you’ll know that there’s always an element of risk involved in forex trading. That’s why we offer the Demo Account — a free, practical way to discover the features of your trading platform and test your strategies before you commit any of your own money.

What is a demo trading account?

A demo trading account is a type of account that is funded with entirely virtual money, but still includes all of the functionalities and technical indicators as a live account. This makes it the perfect tool if you’re new to trading, as you can become familiar with the fundamentals of both your trading platform and the financial markets themselves before you start trading with real funds.

Advantages of a demo trading account

There are numerous advantages to having a demo account. For beginners, it enables you to learn how to open and close positions, read price charts and practice using trading in complete safety until you’re ready to transition to a live trading environment. You’ll be practicing under real market conditions, which is a great way to get to grips with risk management.

A demo account is also a must-have for more experienced traders to continue honing and improving your existing trading skills. As you develop or discover new strategies and techniques, it makes sense to test them first to see how these methods are likely to perform.
