Demo account reset


Guest Stef

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

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?

    • Silver Elliott Wave Analysis Function -Counter-Trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Expected Impulse or Zigzag for wave C (circled) Position - Wave 1 of (1) Direction - Wave 2 of (1) of C (circled) Details - It appears wave B (circled) has been completed and wave C (circled) is now emerging upside. We are now counting a pullback in wave 2 of (1) or wave (2). The current dynamics in the silver market present an intriguing opportunity. Silver is recovering from a pullback that began in late May 2024, and this recovery is expected to ignite a series of rallies, continuing the year-long bullish impulse cycle. Both long-term and medium-term Elliott Wave forecasts support the potential for further upward movement in this precious metal.   Daily Chart Analysis On the daily chart, we can observe that the impulse wave sequence, which began in January 2024, culminated in May 2024, followed by a corrective pullback. This bearish corrective structure persisted for five weeks and appears to have concluded with a double zigzag pattern. The shallowness of this correction suggests a potential for another leg lower. However, if the impulsive reaction from late June continues to ascend without turning corrective, it would confirm that the market has embraced the shallow nature of the pullback. This scenario is likely to propel silver prices higher, potentially reaching new highs in 2024. H4 Chart Analysis The H4 chart provides a closer look at the sub-waves of wave B (circled) and the early stages of wave C (circled). The price appears to have completed wave 1 of C (circled) at 31.75 and is currently undergoing a pullback in wave 2. Wave 2 could potentially extend lower to the 30.15-29.77 range, which represents the 50-61.8% Fibonacci retracement levels. This zone is where the price could find support, setting the stage for the commencement of wave 3, which is anticipated to drive silver to fresh highs in 2024. It is crucial to monitor that the price remains above 28.57, as a break below this level would indicate that wave B might extend lower, altering the expected bullish trajectory.   Summary In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis suggests that silver is in the midst of a recovery from a recent pullback, with the potential for significant rallies ahead. The key levels to watch include the 30.15-29.77 range for wave 2 support and 28.57 as a critical support level. If the current impulse wave continues to rise, it will confirm the shallow nature of the pullback and support the projection of new highs for silver in 2024. This analysis underscores the importance of closely monitoring wave structures and key price levels to anticipate future movements in the silver market.
