Demo Account

If you are new to spread betting or CFD trading, or would like to familiarise yourself with our online trading platform in a risk-free environment, we highly recommend that you open an online Demo Account. You can also use your Demo Account on our iPhone/iPad trading app, to test out mobile trading.

About the Demo Account

Our Demo Account allows you to navigate around our dealing platform, make 'paper trades' (i.e. trading without depositing funds) and generally get a feel for the trading system without actually risking any money.

The Demo Account mirrors our live trading system in most respects, other than the requirement for depositing funds! You will begin with a virtual cash balance of £10,000 to get you going.

You can choose when you open the demo whether to set up the account for spread betting, CFDs or both.

  • Please refer to our User Manual for help with placing your first demo trades.
  • You can also access our extensive Trader Education resources to help you get started.
  • If you have any problems please email or call +44 (0)20 7456 7677

Please note that stop-losses are automatically allocated to every trade you make, but you can amend your stop level as required. In the event of a market 'gap' or extreme volatility your stop order may not be filled at the stated price and may be subject to slippage, unless you have selected a Guaranteed Stop.
