Demo Account Opening

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 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.
