    What’s the difference between a demo and live trading account?

    While demo and live account may provide similar trading experiences, the trading environment can still be differ. The demo accounts are predominantly used for familiarising yourself with the trading platform and for educational purposes only. For example, a demo account also comes with $100,000 worth of virtual trading credits for you to practise trading. On the other hand, live trading accounts not only allows you to hold a position, but also access to trade CFDs on global markets. We do not guarantee that the product specifications and performance on a demo account will be the same as that of a live account.
