Opening a Demo Account

Opening a Demo Account

In the MetaTrader 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 users to test a trading strategy. They feature all the same functionality as the live 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 "Open a personal demo account".

Tap on "Start without registration" in order to quickly open a demo account without entering personal details. The new account will be instantly opened and connected. Your login and password will be sent to the internal mailbox.
