Do I need prior trading experience to open an account?

Although trading experience is not mandatory, it might be better to have some. CFD trading comes with significant risks. It is a complex financial instrument that might not be suitable for everyone and can result in loss of the invested capital. We advise you not to invest more than you can afford to lose and to consider both your financial capabilities and trading experience before trading.

A Live account is where you trade CFDs on actual assets with your actual capital. In other words, it is the real-time environment where you invest your money.

What is a practice account?

Our registered traders are eligible for a 7-day practice account with $100k of virtual money. This gives them a simulated environment that functions just like a Live one, except it comes with no risk of losing real money.
