Is there a demo in MT for any broker that doesn't expire? I know I can just keep recreating demo accounts, but it's a pain. How is recreating a new demo account a pain? It only takes 3 seconds. And why does anyone need a non-expiring demo account anyway? What is the point? But what you do is, open Explorer and drag all your indicators and profiles and templates to the new MT4 provider. That way your templates etc follow you if you have to switch providers or in my case, I use two or more testing different strategies in different demo accounts.
Because in my experience, you have to redo all your charts, loading up all your templates and whatnot. It's just something I'd rather not do. Thanks for the help. Alpari demo accounts expire after 90 days, if you download MT4 from the metatrader website it has a non expiring demo trading account Forex Trading Platform MetaTrader 4.
FX pro does not expire. I use it to chart. They do expire after 30 days if you don't use them though While IBFX has a never expiring demo account, it does not offer every currency pair.
Consider it a one time expense to have access to infinite charting for all currencies. Google MetaTrader4, should be the first listing then click on Forex Trading Platform Meta Trader 4, then download and its yours forever.
Setting up a demo takes very little time and as for having one indefinitely, sorry but most brokers provide demo accounts with a time cap.. If you reset each time, its impossible to build a one year trackrecord to have a realistic overview before going to live. Oanda is non expiring even if you don't use it for over a month, some will delete your account if you don't use it once per month so just take note of that.
Metatrader Demo That Doesn't Expire? Why does my IBFX demo account says its a 30 day demo? I've just tried to login to my Alpari UK demo and it's expired.
One of the reasons to use a non expiry account is to track all your performance and statistics.More...
