Review of the WorldSpreads Demo Account

By mosesbet · Filed Under Brokers Comments Off on Review of the WorldSpreads Demo Account 

WorldSpreads is one of the leading spread betting firms in the UK and has a history of delivery positive customer service and experience.  Founded in 2000, WorldSpreads is a lot older than the newer companies such as Capital Spreads (2003) and Tradefair Spreads (2008), and thus is able to provide a little extra to customers in terms of online platform features and markets.

The WorldSpread Demo account is available to all new customers and gives you $10,000 in virtual dollars to practise open/closing trades with on their online simulated platform.

Why Join the WorldSPreads Demo Account?

Unlike other spread betting firms, which provide the same platform features to live account customers, WorldSpreads actually offers three different types of accounts tailored to your needs – a Limited Risk Free Account, Active Account and Platinum Account.

The main difference between all of these account is that the Limited Risk Free Account offers Guaranteed Stop Losses and uses a more basic online trading platform known as the “Lite Platform”.  Unlike the Advanced Platform, the Lite Platform is more suitable for beginners and only offers 72 financial instruments to trade on rather than the 4,000+ which can be found on the advanced version.  In addition to this, the Lite Platform doesn’t allow you to place OCOs, If Dones or Trailing Stops.

That’s why I recommend signing up to the WorldSpreads Demo account.  The Demo account offers you both sets of platforms to choose from (Lite Platform or Advanced Platform) which helps you to decide what type of account you’d prefer once you make a deposit.

The other advantage of trialling the demo account of course is that it enables you to practise risk-free trading without having to deposit or risk any of your own money.  The account allows you to enjoy using all of the features on the WorldSpreads website (including trading charts, seminars and margin trading) before you open a live account.  You can practise using the demo account for as long as you want, making trades on the FTSE 250, Rolling DAX, S&P 500, gold and oil markets, etc.
