Demo account reset

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Is there a way to reset your demo account (without creating a new one, by using a different email address)?

 

I am busy testing a number of ProTrader strategies and use my demo account for this purpose. Before each run, I would like to reset my demo account history (trade history, capital, profit, etc.), to enable easy comparison. At the moment there is already quite a bit of history in my demo account.

 

At a minimum (if nothing else can be done), I would like to be able to set/reset the starting capital amount.

 

Is there a way to do this? Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Is this something that can be added?

 

Regards

Stef

Hey ,

 

It isn't possible for a client to do a full reset on their demo account, however you can top up the funds as required through My Account - Deposit funds in the demo environent.

 

If you do want a specific account reset, please just contact our helpdesk and we can arrange for this to be carried out.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan,

 

The functionality to top up funds is not available for demo accounts, see below:

I was told by your helpdesk that this was not possible - resetting an account - and was told to create a new one!? So, if this is possible, maybe you should tell them.

 

PS: I still think that this functionality should be built into the platform.

 

Regards

Stef

Afternoon ,

 

I'm not sure why you don't have the option to top up your account - I'll get one of our tech team to investigate this. In the meantime, did you want me to get both of your acocunts reset back to the default funds?

Hi all - I just thought I would give an updated answer as I can see that this post has been viewed a number of times even though there haven't been any additional posts on the thread.

This can only be done via My IG. Simply load the page, and then select the 'deposit funds' option from the three bullet point drop down menu on the right had side. Please note once fake funds have been added, you won't be able to remove them.

What an absolute palaver to reset the demo account. It was always possible to simply reset the demo account. Why have you changed it?

    • There is the 'potential' for a breakout in Natural Gas from these price areas. 
    • One of our financial writers have written a piece on smoking vs vaping vs cannabis. Really interesting read. Here's a snip:  Main points:  Big Tobacco turns smoke into vapour Vaping: UK and US take different approaches … with different results Altria’s JUUL investment costs it dearly US vaping crisis highlights importance of a diverse portfolio Can Big Tobacco thrive as cannabis legalisation gains momentum? Altria gets stung for early move into cannabis Can vaping and other smokeless devices become key to the cannabis market?   Find the full article here: Vaping or cannabis: where’s the growth for Big Tobacco?  
    • I see a trend here ... British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman refused to comment on Monday when asked about the hiring of an adviser who has discussed the benefits of forced contraception and said data showed the U.S. black population had lower IQ than white people. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-politics-adviser/johnsons-office-silent-as-rivals-call-for-adviser-to-be-sacked-idUKKBN20B1NI
