Can't see IG/IG-DEMO server on MetaTrader 4



When I click add account on MetaTrader, I can't see IG in the options for server. 

I have searched for IG but still found nothing.

When I opened an IG (real) account it gave me an email to use mt4.ig.com:443 server but when I follow through on that in Metatrader it just links back to the IG website telling me to sign up for a IG live account and then when I fill it out it says I already have an account.

When I try to sign up for a demo account in my ig section the button doesn't work.

Also the setup on MT4 is different to the demo account setup email I got so I can't seem to follow it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi @piersft,

You can create an MT4 demo by following these steps:

1: Open your MT4 terminal and go to file->open an account



2: If you installed MT4 from the IG website the IG server addresses should already be added by default. 



If not then you can easily add them by clicking on the green + symbol and entering:

MT4.IG.COM:443 for Live and DEMO-MT4.IG.COM:443 for the Demo server. Once you entered the address click on scan and ensure that you are able to see a ping number next to the server address to confirm a successful connection.

3: Select the IG demo server and click next, then select "New demo account" and click next again:



4: Fill in the demo application (you have to tick the newsletter box otherwise it won't let you continue):


Take note of the account type:

Forex is for a CFD account and the currency in the suffix determines your demo base currency. Betting is for a Spreadbet account. US FX is for clients based in the US.


-Click next to continue

5: You should now see a window confirming that your demo account is ready for use and a section providing you with your demo login and password. Click finish to complete the account creation journey and start using your MT4 demo.



Hope this helps!

    • The P2E ecosystem has always been both fun and rewarding and that world is about to welcome a game-changer in Animalia's ANIM token. With my portfolio of playing all kinds of games and recently the P2E genre, I will say Animalia is a mix of Axie Infinity and Pokemon, with a dash of Dogecoin thrown in for good measure. Animalia is a captivating new game that blends meme-tastic creatures, strategic card battles, and the power of blockchain technology. And at the heart of this ecosystem lies the ANIM token, ready to unlock a world of possibilities. With an affordable initial market cap and a bull market launch, Animalia wants everyone to join the fun. Competitors like Axie Infinity and Gods Unchained have paved the way, but Animalia brings its own unique blend of humor, education, and community focus. It's not just about battling, with Animalia you can collect unique cards, own a piece of the game, and participate in shaping its future through governance rights. Animalia also raises awareness about endangered species and the importance of animal conservation. I have to say I Animalia have done a good job with the graphics of the game albeit a card game. I saw an opportunity with the first 1,000 users who achieve a spot net buy volume of 100 USDT in ANIM/USDT pairs will receive 56 ANIM each during the current promotion on Bitget until March 1. I like to play but I love to earn too so I'm heading over! What are your thoughts about Animalia? Are you going to be an early bird to get you share of the ANIM worm?
    • Hey everyone! I want to play free games that use NFTs in a fun way. GameFi is getting big lately with new ways to play and earn. Does anyone know of games where you can start playing for free, but they still use NFTs in a cool way? Maybe with animal or crypto cards... We know NFTs can make games more fun instead of just seeming like a money grab.  Specifically, I'm looking for games that: - Are really fun even if you don't spend money - Have an active community of players  - Are on major platforms like Bitget etc. - Let you collect rare NFTs just by playing that are worth keeping - Have developers who are involved and keeping the game fresh or have partnerships that will help it last Let me know if you've tried any games that fit what I described above. I'm open to exploring new projects in my spare time.
    • I'm intrigued by NADA Protocol's vision of integrating blockchain technology into the gaming experience. The prospect of owning and trading in-game items through NFTs adds an exciting dimension to gameplay, offering real rewards and enhancing immersion. The marketplace controlled by the NADA token seems promising, providing a platform for users to engage in trading activities within the gaming ecosystem. I'm optimistic about NADA's potential to carve a niche for itself in the competitive gaming world, especially with its focus on creating a fun and economically rewarding gaming environment. Looking forward to exploring this new gaming frontier!
