I have a similar problem. I have tried to create a "Demo Account" several times and it has failed every time with a "system error". When I contact "IG Help Desk" they claim that there are 2 "Demo Accounts" in my name but I cannot see any. So far I have been going around circles with them eventhough I have provided screenshots of my dashbord which shows no "Demo Accounts" at all. Something is not right.

Not sure why mine stopped. I uninstalled saving personal data and reinstalled and it restarted no problem exactly as before the shutdown.

At what point do you get the 'system error'?

Never had the problem you have, I've started many new demo accounts, didn't know IG recorded them.

I run 2 separate mt4 platforms, one for live and one for demo. You can have them both running at the same time.

Just need to rename the first installed  icon (or the second install will try to use it too) and on the second install the opening pop-up click 'settings' don't put the second install in the same folder as the first one (c: Program Files (x86).

Instead click browse and make a new folder in (C: ) and name it whatever and install the 2nd mt4 in there.

In dashbord when I click "Open demo accounts" I get the following error message:

"We couldn't process your details because of a technical problem. Please try again, call us on 0800 409 6789 / +44 (0)20 7896 0079 or helpdesk.uk@ig.com."

not sure what you mean by dashboard?

To open a demo account open the mt4 live platform and in 'File' click 'Open an Account' click on the demo feed in the pop up box to highlight then click next and follow instructions.

The platform will then generate a demo account and an icon will show in the Navigator panel below the one for live and you can switch back and forth between them.

I am referring to a standard demo account on the online platform not an mt4 live platform. I just thought there may be a general problem with demo accounts and there does not seem to be any knowledgable support staff currently available to sort it out.

    • If we could get some news about negotations and a possible ceasefire in Ukraine then i would say this is the bottom https://edition.cnn.com/markets/fear-and-greed "That indicator previously fell to 0 in August 2002, July 2008, September 2011, September 2015, January 2016 and March 2020, observed Hartnett. When it has previously zeroed out, except in the case of a double-dip recession such as 2002 or in the event of systemic events, as in 2008 and 2011, three-month returns have been strong, as the table below shows." https://www.marketwatch.com/story/based-on-history-the-next-bull-market-is-just-months-away-and-could-take-the-s-p-500-to-6000-says-bofa-11655475414
    • The CME Bitcoin futures BTC main contract was at $19,370 late Friday (Chinese time) in New York, up 3.25% from Thursday's New York session, and trading in the $18,630-20,790 range during the session, down 8.87% for the week. the CME Ethereum futures DCR main contract was at $1065.50, up 5.08% from Thursday, and trading in the 1009.50-$1118.00 range, down 13.02% for the week.Maybe there is still a possibility of decline.
