* Important points

The demo account is a tool enabling you to practise using the IG platform in a risk-free environment. While much of the functionality of the live platform features in the demo account, there are key differences to be aware of, including (but not limited to):

  • Trades made through the demo account will not be subject to slippage, interest and dividend adjustments, or out of hours price movements
  • Trades may be rejected if you have insufficient funds to open them, but, unlike on a live account, will never be rejected on the grounds of size or price
  • You will not be charged for chart packages on a demo account
  • Trades will not be closed if you have insufficient funds to cover margin and running losses, which can happen on a live account

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and therefore before opening a live account we recommend you read the information available on our website as well as the Customer Agreement and PDS to ensure that you are aware of the features of a live account.
