The trading results on the demo accounts do not include commissions, exchange fees and N.F.A fees that you are going to get charged on your real account. You should also consider that certain fills you would get on a "demo" account might not reflect the same result on a live market action. Demo accounts use hypothetical money and don’t have the emotional impacts of real money. This demo is designed as an introduction to using the platform; it is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment.
