Making your first trade
You’ve signed up and you’re ready to dip your toe into the world of trading!
If you’re completely new to trading, we recommend the Demo Account at first, in order for you to get comfortable. The Demo Account is a great way to get acquainted with the trade room environment, as well as getting to grips with the various tools, charts and indicators available to you. Your Demo Account will be credited with $10,000 in virtual cash, but do remember to use this as if it was real money.
You can start by choosing an asset to trade (forex or digital options might be a good starting point) and use this to work on your trading skills. At a later stage, when you feel you are ready to progress and you are making profitable trades, you can open a real account.
If you’re an experienced trader, you can deposit money into your account by clicking the drop-down arrow in the top right-hand corner, where it says ‘Real Account’.
From here, you will be able to see your balance, investment, net profit/loss and your total. Underneath you will see the ‘Withdrawal’ and ‘Deposit’ buttons, you should click deposit if you want to add money to your account.
Once you’ve clicked the deposit button, it will bring you to a list of payment methods. Some of these include AdvCash, Neteller, Skrill, Visa/Mastercard and many more. Once you’ve chosen your payment method, choose the amount you wish to add to your account and fill in the information required by your chosen payment method.
Once you’ve done that – your money will be deposited and you’re ready to make your first trade!
There are a number of super useful tools included in the app to help support you and your trading strategy.
On the left side of the trade room interface, you will find six icons, each with their own unique and helpful functions.
If you click on the Calendar icon, this will open the market analysis tab. This is a continually updated news widget that will help notify you of any news developments that could affect or potentially assist you in selecting an asset to trade.
On the Play icon, you’ll find a whole host of incredibly supportive and useful video tutorials, from the trading basics all the way through to technical analysis.
