Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose.

Practice Risk-Free Trading On Metatrader 4

Our MetaTrader 4 demo has the same layout as the live version of the MT4 platform, with four trading windows and over 80 forex pairs to choose from. You’ll get $10,000 in virtual funds to trade with and build your confidence in a risk-free environment before deciding whether you want to progress to a live account.

In addition, you’ll get access to the same free add-ons and indicators that you receive with a live account – so you get the full MT4 experience with none of the real-world risk.

Differences Between an MT4 Demo Account and an MT4 Live Account

  • Trades made on your MT4 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 demo funds to open them, but, unlike on a live account, will never be rejected on the grounds of size or price
  • Trades will not be closed if you have insufficient funds to cover margin and running losses, while trades could be closed in such a scenario on a live account

Upgrade To a Live MT4 Account

There is no way to change your MT4 demo account to a live MT4 account. Instead, you will need to create a separate live account. Fortunately, we’ve made it a straightforward process – find out more about how to download MT4.
