Documents may vary based on the entity you sign up with. However, we need to verify who you are and where you live. We do this via 3rd party identification checks and what we need is a proof of your identity (valid passport or government ID, and a driving license) as well as a proof of your residency(utility bills such as water/electricity, bank or credit card statements or a residency certificate) . Once you've done your online registration, your Account Representative will help you with your documents and anything else you may need to get your account activated.

Can I send a proof of ID / address that's not in English?
img

You can send us your documents in one of the following languages: English, French, Polish, Spanish, Portuguese, & Arabic. If your documents are in a different language, then they will have to be provided with their official translation, which may make the process a little longer.
Why do you need to know my personal and financial information?
img

Our regulators, who monitor our activities to make sure we're running a compliant and ethical business, require the information of all our traders. Given we hold the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) license, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) license, the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC) license and are registered under FSA (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), we're required to meet certain obligations.
We need to be able to show who you are, where you live, and that the funds are coming from a legitimate source.
Any information you provide is only used for regulatory purposes - as per our Privacy Policy.
Can I open a joint account?
img

Yes you can! As you probably know, both yourself and the party you're joining accounts with will have to sign some documents. Once your joint account is ready, both yourself and the party you're joining your account with will be able to trade, deposit and withdraw.

How long does it take for the money I deposit to reach my account?
img

That really depends on the way you deposit.

We send the money to your trading account as soon as we get it - once again keep in mind we're talking about business hours & days.

In trading terms, you'll be able to trade in real market conditions, using real account features, but without the risk of losing your investment.
Are you ready for the test drive?

img

Your spreads will be based on our live trading accounts. You can choose your spreads either in the pop-up registration page that you'll see after you've downloaded the MT4 demo platform for the first time, or you can do it while you're on the platform by going to the 'File' tab and choosing 'Open an Account'.

What is the difference between trading on a demo account and a real one?
img

On a demo account, you'll be getting similar market conditions and trading features, and monitoring the same market as you would on a real account. The difference though is that on a demo account you're trading virtual money, so you do not face the risk of losing most or your entire invested capital and you also get to learn. On a live trading account, the risk is real as you may profit but you may also lose most, or all of your invested capital. Also, trading/execution conditions may change, given that you will have to take into account liquidity.
Why do you offer MT4?

What does the 'Trade Context is Busy' error mean?

For assistance, click on 'Chat Now' at the bottom-right of your screen to get in touch with one of our Account Representative.

img
