Terminal allows to work with two types of accounts: demo accounts and real accounts. Demo accounts enable working under training conditions, without real money on them, but they allow to work out and test trading strategy very well. They possess all the same functionality as the real ones. The distinction consists in that demo accounts can be opened without any investments, though one cannot count on any profit from them.
A demo account can be opened by the "File Open an Account" menu command or by the same command of the "Navigator Accounts" window context menu. Besides, the terminal will offer to open a demo account at the first program start to begin working immediately.
The process of opening an account consists of several steps:
The first stage of account opening is selection of a server to connect to. Addresses of available servers, their names and ping are listed there. The most preferable is the server having the lowest ping. To perform additional checking the ping, you should press the "Scan" button. After that the ping information becomes refreshed.
Also in this window you can add a new server to connect to. To do it, press the " add new server" button or the "Insert" key. A server can be specified in different ways:
As soon as you specify a server, press "Enter". To delete a server, select it and press the "Delete" key.
At this stage a user can specify details of an existing trade account or start creating a new one.
This window contains three options:
The next stage of opening an account is specifying personal details:
The following data will be requested to open an account:
To activate the "Next" button and continue registration, it is necessary to flag "I agree to subscribe to your newsletters".
After the registration has successfully completed, a window will appear that contains information about the open account: "Login" the account number, "Password" the password for access, "Investor" the investor's password (connection mode in which it is possible to check the account status, analyze the price dynamics, etc., but no trading is allowed).
After registration has been completed, the new account will appear in the "Navigator Accounts" window, and it is ready to work with. At that, the server sends a message to the terminal containing login and passwords of this newly opened account. This message can be found in the "Terminal Mailbox" window. Besides, after the account has been successfully registered, it will be authorized automatically.
Attention: If any problems occur at the account opening, technical support service of the brokerage company should be asked for help.
Real accounts, unlike demo accounts, cannot be opened from the terminal. They can only be opened by brokerage companies under certain terms and conditions. Real accounts are marked correspondingly in the "Navigator Accounts" window. To start working with them, one must perform authorization.
