Demo platform prices different to live platform prices

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am new to the IG platform.

I was trading the demo account and saw cheaper prices for buying calls and puts at the money compared with prices of around 10 times more expensive options when buying these same calls and puts on the live platform. 

Could anyone give me any pointers to let me know what I'm doing wrong please? (or is it just a fault in the demo platform with IG?)


Here are the screenshots of the demo versus the live platform (both are for the daily Wall Street option markets).

First for the DEMO platform:




and the LIVE account prices:




Thank you for any help anyone can give me with this query.


Kind regards,
