Demo Account Record Holder


Recommended Posts

Surely someone knows whether there is a Demo Account Record Holder???

Surely some of you use the demo accounts to test strategies?  

None of you back test algos on Quantopian and test the strategies on your demo accounts before using your own funds?

Ok..... I'll go first!  So my demo spread trade account and my CFD account combined are now worth 215 Million!  Started 6 years ago with 10k... 

I admit i am an ex-institutional trader hailing from JP Morgan (Finsbury Dials) Specializing in commodities.... 

Does anyone have demo account figures that exceed my own?

Best regards

Would you share a record of your trades with that demo account? 
Words don´t mean much if they are not backed up with data. 

It is impressive that you reached 215 million. I am ready to bow down and kneel to you, but I need some kind of a prove that you are not just another bored big-mouthy trader. We have many of them already.

Oops!

@dmedin   Look I apologize that we have got off on the wrong foot, I have no intention to cause arguments or be rude to anyone nor come across as arrogant. If anything I was actually hoping to help some of you?  I am actually an autistic mathematician and have an in depth working knowledge of all the important processes and protocols used on the trading floors in Canary Wharf. I'm 45yrs old and now engage in private banking services for a select few. I have a wealth of information on the global markets and am happy to pass on any information that may be relevant to how you trade. Always here to answer questions. 

Best regards

@jlz     Good going!  Demo accounts are a perfect way to test trading strategies!  We use them to test algorithms of which would then generally be linked to automated trade systems. We are also developing and testing A.I. and quantum systems. 

👍

It's me who has to apologise because I set up those amounts just by clicking on the "add funds" button, since they are a rounded number I thought the joke was going to be pretty easily spotted. But looking at your answer you really thought that I made 20 million with my demo account, sorry not even close.
What I can tell is that your account is made out of trades, because you can't add funds to the demo account on top of 10 million (which is what I did). And that is really impressive. It is that impressive that I started looking at the Oil market (picking from your words) to see if I could understand something there. :) 

I do have a good performance with my live account but it is nowhere near those numbers, it is way more modest.

@jlz  That's ok no harm done.  We have run our demo accounts on here for around 6 yrs, im pretty sure ours started with 10k not 10 million as i think at one point you could only get a 10k demo account (Dont quote me on that)

With reference to oil (Brent Crude)  We are waiting to see if it drops back into the 3's..   We calculate the movements based on global usage statistics and reserves etc.  I'll let you know when we are considering to trade it.

🙂👍

Brent crude in the 3's 

A short term Long position could be in play. Although I would expect another drop into the sub 35's if lockdown restrictions increase globally.

Agree.  It could go up or down.  Or maybe sideways.  Depending on circumstances.

    • Early Morning Call: Shell warns on earnings as refining margins drop The oil price is up after OPEC+ delivered a 2-million barrel per day cut, while Shell warns on earnings as it sees a drop in refining margins.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Thursday 06 October 2022  Macro overview US equity markets consolidated yesterday after two days of strong gains. The Dow Jones fell by 0.14%, and the Nasdaq ended the session 0.25% lower. Overnight the session was mixed in the APAC region. In Australia, trade surplus narrowed to a six-month low - A$8.32 billion - in August, below market forecasts of a A$10.1 billion surplus. Exports grew by 3%, while imports increased 4% compared to last month. For San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly, the path has been very clear: "we are going to raise the rate until we get into restrictive territory, and then we are going to hold it there" until inflation comes down closer to 2%. In an Interview with Bloomberg yesterday Daly reiterated the Fed's commitment to restore price stability, and it particularly waiting for two important sets of data. She hopes tomorrow’s non-farm payrolls (NFP) will confirm the start of a hiring slowdown. Earlier this week, JOLTs openings fell to their lowest level since June 2021. Current expectations for non-farm payrolls are 250,000 job creations in September. If actual figures were to match that forecast, it should be the lowest number of job creations since December 2020. The San Francisco Fed president would also like to see next week's CPI showing underlying price pressures either stabilising or falling. She could be disappointed there. If the headline figure is expected to fall to 8.1%, economists see core CPI rise accelerating to 6.5%. The Fed is expected to deliver a fourth straight 75-basis-point rate hike when it meets early next month. Equity overview Elsewhere on the equity market, Shell warns this morning that its third quarter (Q3) profits will be weakened by a sharp drop in refining margins and expects "significantly" weaker earnings from natural gas trading. N Brown posted an 82.4% drop in adjusted profit before tax and revised its profit guidance down. Imperial Brands announced £1 billion share buyback programme, and says that total capital returns in full-year 23 (FY23), including ordinary dividends and share buybacks, are expected to exceed £2bn. Levi Strauss & Company is set to post its third quarter earnings after market close tonight. Analysts anticipate earnings of 37 cents per share, gathering pace after the 29 cents reported three months ago, but some 23% lower than the same quarter a year ago. Revenue is forecast to increase by 6.7% to $1.6bn. Levi Strauss can count on the strength of its brand, but like many other retailers, it has to face supply chain issues, in an adverse economic environment. Investors will be particularly attentive to the group guidance, which at the moment stands at $1.50-$1.56 for the full year. Constellation Brands Inc is poised to release its second quarter (Q2) earnings before the US opening bell. The maker of Corona beer is expected to report an 18% increase in earnings per share to $2.78. Revenue should reach $2.50bn. Commodities Oil prices are holding at the new three-week high set yesterday. OPEC+ agreed on a two million barrels per day (bpd) cut yesterday, saying it was an adequate response in a context of rising interest rates and weakening global economy. US president Joe Biden called the decision "short-sighted" and said he would continue to assess whether to release further strategic oil stocks to lower prices. The next OPEC+ meeting will take place on 4 December. OPEC+ will move to meet every six months instead of monthly meetings. The EIA confirmed the decline across the board announced by the API on Tuesday. Crude inventories fell by 1.4 million barrels last week. U.S. gasoline stocks shrank by 4.7mn barrels, and distillate stockpiles fell by 3.4Mln barrels has context menu     This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Stock markets remain in a more bullish pattern after the losses of recent weeks, and Asian indices made some more progress, albeit in a more tentative fashion. Oil prices remain on an upward path following OPEC's move to cut output by two million barrels per day, pushing prices to their highest level since mid-September. Stronger data in the form of the ADP report and the ISM non-manufacturing PMI caused a wobble in stocks, which have rallied on fresh hopes that the Fed will pivot away from its hawkish policy in the near future. Today is a quieter day, with just the UK construction PMI and weekly jobless claims, and the focus is now shifting to tomorrow's non-farm payroll report.   
    • Scallops Chart Pattern are J-shaped, inverted J-shaped, or mirror J-shaped continuation patterns that appear often during trending markets. This pattern has a steep momentum and a rounded bottom or top. The structure is pretty smooth at first, then the market begins to rush up with significant momentum, or vice versa. Scallop patterns appear less frequently than other continuation patterns such as flags or pennants, yet they are among the most stable forms.   Types of Scallops Chart Patterns There are four types of Scallops, two of which suggest bullish movement, while the other two imply bearish movement.   Ascending Scallop Pattern Inverted Ascending Scallop Pattern Descending Scallop Pattern Inverted Descending Scallop Pattern Read More -   Scallops Chart Pattern
