*FOREX.com’s demo account is a core element of our educational effort. A demo account is intended to familiarize you with the tools and features of FOREX.com's trading platforms and to facilitate the testing of forex trading strategies in a risk-free environment using virtual funds. Results achieved on the FOREX.com demo account are hypothetical and no representation is made that any account will or is likely to achieve actual profits or losses similar to those achieved in the demo account. Conditions in the demo account cannot always reasonably reflect all of the market conditions that may affect pricing, execution and margin requirements in a live trading environment. Margin and leverage settings by product and account may vary from time to time between your demo account and a live account due to live account settings changes imposed by Forex.com resulting from market volatility and other factors. Rollover/financing charges are not simulated in the demo environments. The pricing available is the same pricing available to FOREX.com account holders. Pricing for managed accounts and accounts referred by an Introducing Broker may differ.
