Demo account for stocks

Hi everyone,

 

I am a newbie on the platform and I will need your help.

I created a demo account, thinking that I could trade lot of different assets (I am focusing on stocks at the moment), but the only options I have are CFDs and Spread Betting.

Question 1:

How can I open a demo account to practice day-trading some stocks?

Question 2:

In Settings/Trade settings/Data feeds, are the charges of whatever we pick per share we buy, or per overall trade?

CFD'S and SB are the same as trading stocks.  The only difference is with CFD'S and SB you buying with a margin and you don't own the share which does not matter in a DEMO  Margin just  means you can buy more shares for less = more risk    . ie 20% of the actual price.  Hope this helps.                                     

Settings/Trade settings/Data feeds:  This is information you pay for:  Level 1 and 2  are live feeds from ie Nasdaq. ( Direct Market Access)  you can see trades as people are buying and selling the  stock.

Your reply does not really answer my question, but thank you anyway.

Hi  @47Tsial,

There is no share dealing demo accounts only Spread bet or CFD account ( Leverage)
1) Yes
2) The data feed prices are for a month of data for one exchange. It will be active for a month for that specific exchange.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin
