Getting started FAQs
Do you offer a demo account?
Yes, we offer a free demo account containing virtual funds. This allows you to try out our platform in a risk-free environment and practise trading strategies and techniques. Please note that our demo account doesn't display prices for share spread bets or CFDs.
All you need to do to open a demo account is provide a valid email address, your full name, phone number and password. Open a demo account now. Once you have opened a demo account, you will need to click on the verification link sent to your registered email address to activate it.
Will my demo account expire?
No, you can keep your demo account open for as long as you like and you can use it to test strategies, even after you've opened a live account. Add more virtual funds at any time via the 'Payments' menu.
Please note that shares on a demo account are available for a limited period due to exchange restrictions. Most shares, including US shares, are available for 30 days once activated. For UK and Italy shares, demo subscriptions are available for the current calendar month only. When you select to activate shares from these countries, you will see a message confirming this, enabling you to either activate straightaway, or wait for the beginning of the following month. This gives you the opportunity to trade on UK and Italy shares for a whole month.
How do I open a live account?
Just click on the ‘Live Account’ button on the login page to go to the online application form. Use your demo account login details to get started and then follow the step-by-step instructions to apply for your live account.
