Live Account Upgrade

We provide guidance when you are ready to trade with a live account

A demo account cannot always reasonably reflect all of the market conditions that may affect pricing, execution and margin requirements in a live trading environment. Margin and leverage settings may vary from time to time between your demo account and a live account due to live account setting changes imposed as a result of elevated market volatility or other factors.

Demo accounts are intended to enable you to familiarise yourself with the tools and features of our trading platforms. Success or failure in simulated trading bears no relation to probable future results with any live trading that you may choose to engage in, and you should not expect any success with the Demo Account to be replicated in actual live trading.
