Get a Forex MetaTrader demo account for free

I was looking for a free MetaTrader demo account and the one from Alpari fits my needs nicely. The signup procedure is very quick. Just fill in a few basic details, download/install MetaTrader and you are ready to start.

You can choose your initial balance when signing up. I haven’t worked out how to add more ‘money’ to the demo account so if you run out you might just have to sign up for a new one – as it is so quick to sign up for a demo account this is no big deal.

MetaTrader is a feature rich trading client which as well as all the usual chart and indicator options allows you to write your own automated trading systems in a language called MQL (similar to Java/C++).

MetaTrader 4 demo account for free with Alpari

You can keep using the demo account for as long as you like, but if you don’t use it for 30 days it will be deleted and you’ll have to sign up for a new one.

Alpari sensibly segregate their live and demo accounts onto separate servers. They say that occasionally they may test new features on the demo account which could affect its reliability, but so far I’ve had no issues.

Go here if you want to open a demo account with them.
