MT4 Demo account issues


MAKTRADER6970

Question

Hi

 

I have IG MT4 downloaded and installed on my Windows 10 laptop.
I tried to open a demo account via file->open account -> selecting IG-DEMO trading server and then new demo account. At this point , after clicking next button (which greys out) nothing happens and gave up after waiting over 2 hrs.
 
What is going on please and why is it not letting me create a MT4 demo account?
 
Thank you

Hi, did you also open a mt4 account with IG from your My IG > add an account? You don't need to fund it but think you need it to receive the data feeds.

Hi,

Yes I did but it didnt send me an email with password credentials.

I could try again but how do I delete the demo account I created on IG Index  first ?

Thanks

I'm thinking now it should work on just demo. To delete a demo open the navigator panel and Accounts should show at the top, just right click on the demo account and click delete.

Go back to File > Open an account, highlight demo > next > new account > next > and follow steps but make sure you check the 'agree to receive newsletter' box, nothing is sent but need to be checked  anyhow.

see if that works.

Hi again

When I go to my IG platform via browser and naviagate to "MY IG" I can see my MT4 account but there is no option to delete it - am I looking in right place?

Regards MT4 platform itself - it doesnt even go as far as allowing my tick the subscription - afte clicking 'next'  after ticking demo account type from 'Select account type'  it just sits there.

I did notice that IG-DEMO server does not ping - I'm assuming that is correct?

 

thanks

sorry no, delete on the mt4 platform but just seen the delete option is only for multiple demo accounts, (pic 1)

and yes the scan for demo should return ping and highlight when clicked . (pic 2) if yours isn't > 

Check your server connection bottom right corner of mt4 screen, click on box and rescan (pic 3)

Hi

Thank you for your detailed response - greatly appreciated.

All a mystery as I have tried pinging the IG-DEMO server number of times via scan without success plus IG-LIVE is not shown in the list. I tried another version of MT4 ( from different broker) p and that worked fine - so not a firewall issue. Totally confused.

 

If you have any further suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you again

no problem, maybe a corrupted file somewhere, probably worth just doing a reinstall.

Uninstall mt4 from computer's control panel > programs

and reinstall from the copy in your downloads folder.

It's the 'ig4setup' file - just double click.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
