Demo Account Fees

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just started using the demo account to trial Forex and wanted to find out if all the trading cost and other charges like overnight funding are applied for the demo account or will these charges only be applied when I have a live account?

This is a very interesting question!


A demo account should take into account the costs, if it wants to simulate truthfully trading. Things like slippage are harder to simulate, but fees and charges should be reflected to be useful and faithful. I would not trust a platform that does not do so in their demo accounts.

Any answers?

Thanks for your email.


Yes the spread and overnight funding are all built into the demo account as well so you will be able to see how that performs. 


The one thing to note is that our margin call policy does not apply to the demo as it would to the live account

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The IG Demo account does not represent the live market at all with different spreads; also, slippage is a common occurrence.  I have tackled IG many times on this, and the result has been that the demo offering is for testing and is not supported like a live account.  Sorry for the dim news, but this is a reality.  Also, I recommend that you do not use PRT V12, as this makes things even worse!Its best to start on a small real account until your confidence builds.

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
