MetaTrader 5 iPhone/iPad HelpAccountsDemo Account Opening

Demo Account Opening

The MetaTrader 5 app for iPhone supports 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 New 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.

  • Search results are displayed after you type three characters.
  • Contact your broker to know the server name.

Tap on the desired server line and then tap "Demo account".

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