Is it possible to open a demo account for basic stock investing / trading i.e. not a CFD or Spread Betting demo account?

thanks.

Hi Ben10,

Unfortunately we do not offer Demo accounts with Share dealing only. You can buy shares through leverage on the Demo though.

How do I buy Mandrake Resources (ASX) on a demo account?  Mine says "CLOSING DEALS ONLY - IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close."

Initially I thought it was because my first attempts were before the market opened at 10am, but now that the market's open and I can see trades for Mandrake going through like usual (and even bought some myself via another broker) I still can't place an order for same in my IG test account.

Hi @emexes,

Mandrake Resources Ltd is not available to trade on leveraged account (CFD). You can see that information is available on the info tab on the dealing ticket:

    • Ok, I just hope that you are consequent with your own words and don't get the Covid vaccine or don't wear a mask when you are asked to.  I hope you are not like these folks: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/sep/15/fox-news-vaccines-testing-tucker-carlson I know... I know... the guardian... It is not right-win biased.
    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
