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).

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
