Demo account / live account (differences)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I’m just getting my head around trading shares, looking at the demo account it’s set up as a CFD, is there an option to open a “Share trading” demo account so it would represent closer to what I would actually be using when I transition to live with no extra added “funding” (for example: 2000 shares @ $8.4 can be bought on demo with a margin of $4,789 — rather than being limited to only buy 1,190 shares with my imaginary “$10k”)

Secondly, when looking at my transaction history for my demo account, “WITH” is placed before and after a “DEAL”, correct me if I’m wrong but does this represent a “Funding” fee Due to the way my demo account is set up allowing me to have the funding (eg. First example above), and without this would leave trading US shares (from AU) at $0 // AU shares @ $8/0.1%
