While all features and functions of the Live platform are available in the Demo platform, traders should keep in mind that simulation cannot exactly replicate real trading marketplace conditions. One important distinction is that the volume executed in the simulation (Demo) does not affect the marketplace, while in Live trading, executed trades have an effect on the marketplace, especially when large and/or numerous trades are executed. Furthermore, traders can have a very different psychological profile depending on whether they trade in Demo or Live platforms. This aspect may impact the evaluation performed with the Demo account.

Market order is an order to buy or sell an instrument at current market price. If you submit a market order to your broker to buy or sell a stock, bond, mutual fund, or other security, your broker will execute the trade immediately if the market is currently open, or upon market opening if the market is currently closed.

A stop order is a pending order to buy or sell an instrument once the price of this instrument reaches a specified price, known as the stop price. A stop order can actually be considered as an alarm, which gets triggered when market reaches the price and turns into a market order. So once the price surpasses the predefined entry/exit point, the stop order will indeed become a market order. As the stop order becomes a market order when it reaches the stop price, the order might not necessarily be filled at the target stop price. Therefore the executed price may be worse or better than the stop price (or identical). In other words, stops are not a 100% guarantee of getting the desired entry/exit points. This could be a disadvantage if a there is a fast market move and consequently, your stop order may be filled at a price considerably different than expected.

A limit order is a pending order to buy or sell an instrument at a specified level. A buy limit order can only be executed at the limit price and triggered by the ask side, and a sell limit order can only be executed at the limit price and triggered by the bid side. Limit orders may fail to execute because the market price may quickly bounce back from the limit price before your order can be filled.

No. Our negative answer means that all trading orders are executed fully automatically by the trading system. Order execution is STP (Straight-Through Processing) without any human intervention.

The ‘Stop Loss Level’ function provides traders with possibility to automatically close all positions beyond a certain drawdown level of equity, which is usually 20% of your margin and can be more depending on higher leverages. The function is located in the Portfolio section of the trading platform or in the client reports area. All open positions will be closed, all pending orders will be cancelled and trading blocked if the equity on the account becomes equal to or less than the ‘Stop Loss Level’ set by the client. Please beware that equity on the account after the closing of all open positions might be lower than the ‘Stop Loss Level’, depending on market conditions.
