MT4 login - demo Vs live details

Guest Neil


I     have a live MT4 account. My chart is in demo mode. Tried to overide demo log in details with details of my "Live" log in details. Failed to get live charts. The log in box always reverts to demo log in details and Demo-IG server.

I think? I have the right "Live" log in details. I am confused - help?

Hi @Guest Neil, 

check you have the following;

demo and live have separate feeds, you need both;


Demo and live appearing as separate accounts in 'Navigator',  that is where you switch between the two;


If demo doesn't appear go to 'File' to 'open new account;


Click on the demo feed to highlight and follow on screen instructions to open a new demo account;


Let us know how you got on.

Hi @Turnip230248, what do you see under accounts, are there the demo and live icons as in my pic (num 2)?

You need to double click on the live or demo icon to make it active.

You can open a new demo account at any time in just a minute following the instructions in my post. 

Accounts -nothing. Clicking produces nothing. I need to get a live MT4 account - I have funds in my MT4  IG account page -I checked.

Would it be easier to uninstall IG MT4 and reinstall ?

Newly re-installed and charts waiting for update

Fixed -closed "waiting to update charts" windows and popped in a couple of new ones from "Market Watch" window.

Now have live functioning MT4 platform - thanks for all the help Casey

No problem @Turnip230248,  one of the first things to do is to set up a chart in the colours you like and set as a template to use on any additional charts. Then consider downloading the IG mt4 apps package which includes the mini terminal which puts a deal ticket on the chart and once a trade is entered adds adjustable limits and stop levels. Once downloaded drag and drop from the list or just double click to add to any active chart.

    • Have markets any further upside to go?    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Wednesday 01 February 2023   In our regular monthly update, IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Serge Berger, from The SteadyTrader.com, who is looking at shorting the DAX. But he says that the US dollar is key, and his best case is that this begins to pick up again after the recent drop into the support zone where it is. The obvious trade out of this is then short gold.

    • Central bank transparency means few surprises to move markets when the Fed rate decision is announced. Does it still have a surprise to shift the dollar? We look at the potential for upside and downside moves in forex markets.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Wednesday 01 February 2023 Fed rate decision It is the US interest rate decision tonight at 7pm UK time. While there’s little move in the currency markets so far this morning ahead of the announcement, it is an event that could well move the markets when we see that detail coming through from the Federal Reserve (Fed) and also at the press conference a little bit later on. The expectation Let's take a look at the detail as we're expecting it to break this evening. It's expected to raise interest rates by a margin of 25 basis points, a quarter of one percentage point, to a range of between four and a half and four and three quarter percent. But the big question is how long will the Fed remain on this tightening path? Now, this 25 basis points expected follows a 50 basis point increase in December and four successive 75 basis point interest rate rises previously. Dollar basket Let's look at what's happening with the dollar basket. As I said, not much move at the moment at 10173. Now this direction of travel here showing the dollar weakening away from the highs that we saw back in September last year when the Fed was in that aggressive tightening cycle. Since then, we have seen lots of evidence to suggest that the Fed is wanting to take its foot off the pedal a little bit - 25 basis points is already priced into these markets as things stand there at the moment. There's a little bit of an uptick in the momentum, indicating that there is an appetite, I think, to take this market higher. But if the Fed comes through with anything like the sort of dovish reports in the press conference that some are expecting, we could well see some of that unwound. EUR/USD - trading the move So how do you trade this? Well, let's take a look at the opportunities here. Let's assume that the Fed is going to be dovish, maybe more so than had been the case previously. The euro/dollar trade would go higher and at 10873, you'd put your stop below this area down here at around about the 10750 level, 10873. The area to beat is this 10936, which is the highs that we saw back on the 21st of April last year. Now that's long euro/dollar. Assuming we get a dovish Fed, if the Fed looks like it wants to keep its foot on the pedal, if it wants to continue to try and combat inflation, which is certainly the mantra that we're getting and we have in the past, that's what central banks are meant to be doing. In that case, you would go short on this, and I think there's more money going into the dollar. If we see something more hawkish from the Fed, in which case you go short on this with a stop above this area up here to round about the 10970 level, with a view to taking this lower depending on what the outcome is of that interest rate decision. GBP/USD And the Fed statement tonight, I just want to show you what's happening in sterling against the US dollar, this is sterling having risen up to a level at 12446 with the highs we saw recently back on the 18th of January. Since then, there's been a little bit of consolidation going on, same sort of thing. If you're looking at a dovish Fed, you'd be taking this up. In other words, you'd be long with a stop below recent price action. If you think that there's going to be an aggressive Fed, then obviously you would expect this market to move lower on the session around that decision tonight from the Federal Reserve.
