Why is trading so lucrative?

  • You do not need much money to start: $100 is enough to start!
  • You can use orders and automate your trading activities.
  • Successful trading does not have to take more than a few hours a week.
  • Because you can go short, you can also place orders on falling prices.
  • Thanks to the leverage, you can achieve results with a small amount.
  • No commissions are charged: therefore, trading can be advantageous! 

Demo Account Opening :

In the Meta Trader 5 mobile platform for Android you can work with two types of accounts: demonstration (demo) and real. Demo accounts provide the opportunity to work in a training mode without real money, allowing to test a trading strategy. They have the same functionality as the real ones. The difference is that demo accounts can be opened without any investment and, therefore, one cannot expect to profit from them.

To open a demo account, tap Open an account on the account management page. Next, select the server (brokerage company) on which you wish to open a demo account.

By default, the list does not display all available servers. To find the desired broker server, start typing its name into the search bar.

After some time a new demo account will be allocated to you. Its parameters will be displayed as shown above.

  • First Name, Last Name – the name of the account owner.
  • Account type – the type of the account and the leverage value.
  • Deposit – the initial deposit.
  • Login – the number of the opened account.
  • Password – a password to access the account. This is a master password, which allows to perform trade operations on this account.
  • Investor – investor password. It allows you to connect using this account, view its state and analyze price dynamics, but it does not allow trading.

To complete the account opening process and connect to it, tap "Ready" at the bottom of the window.

Tap Copy to Clipboard to copy the parameters of the opened account to clipboard in order to save them in any other application.
