MetaTrader 5 Android HelpAccountsLive Account Opening

Live Account Opening

Live accounts, unlike demo, cannot be opened straight from the platform. They can only be opened by brokerage companies under certain terms and conditions. However, a real account request can be easily sent to a broker from the trading platform.

Tap on Open an account on the account management page. Select "Open a real account".

You will need to fill in a simple form, similar to the one used for demo accounts, and to additionally attach two documents to confirm your identity and address. A preliminary account will be opened for you on the broker's server, with a zero balance and a disabled trading option.

New Account

Soon after opening the preliminary account, a representative of the brokerage company will contact you to finish the real account opening procedure. After that the preliminary account is converted to the real one, and you can start trading from it.

To select a found server, tap on its line.
