MT4 Demo account Initial Balance limit to $10,000

Question

I create a IG- MT4 DEMO acct. It shown the account  will have an initial balance of 100,000 SGD. 
But when the demo account was created, it only has $10,000 initial balance. 
I want to test with a larger initial capital.
Please look into this issue and revert.

Hi @ckc,  You'll need to go to 'File' > 'Open an Account' and just open a new demo account.  As in the pic below in the pop up box with your personal details you need select SGD (instead of USD), the deposit is auto'd at 100,000 and set the leverage. If that doesn't work increase the USD amount.

Thks for the response.  I opened a IG-Demo account followed the  steps . The first 2 screenshot showed the response from IG Terminal Client that the account with $100,000 has been created. The last screenshot showed that the balance in the account created is $10,000 only (strange. maybe a bug).

ok @ckc,  I think you're right, there seems to be a disconnect in the dollar value input box, maybe @JamesIG, can check up.

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
