The entire registration to use the demo account takes about a minute.
By default, after the first login we are in real mode, i.e. real cash, to switch to the demo account, just select the “virtual wallet” option. If we are going to start investing real money, we stay in the “real wallet” mode, but in order to make the first payment to your broker account, we must first verify our identity.
The next step is to complete a survey that will determine our trading experience and determine the maximum financial leverage with which we can invest. After completing the account verification, we have the opportunity to apply for an increase in the maximum lift for our account, but please note that the higher the leverage, the greater the risk of losing capital invested.
The next stage is a “test of knowledge” about complex derivatives, leveraging capital investment and general CFD trading experience. Beginner investors are advised to read the articles available on our website that explain these key issues in a simple way, as providing a few extremely incorrect answers may result in account registration failure.

The last point is to send a photo or scan of a document confirming our current address, e.g. invoice, bank statement (it can be in PDF format). After completing the last command, we can wait a few minutes or hours for our platform employee to verify our identity and activate the account.
