What is the difference between a demo account and a live account?

The only difference between a demo account and a live trading account is that the demo account trades with virtual money rather than real money. A demo account is a virtual online forex trading account. The so-called "demo" means that the funds in the account are virtual. In addition, the currency quotation and chart in the demo account are synchronized with the real exchange market in real time. The demo account is completely free and does not require any capital.

What trading account types do you offer? What are the differences?

We offer two account types, namely Pro and Standard. The Pro account type offers raw spread, perfect for experienced traders trading with high volumes. However, this account is known as an Alpha account for international clients outside of China and Australia. Meanwhile, the standard account type is commission-free, suiting the needs of new traders.
