Saxo Markets does have a demo version of its trading platform, but there are actually quite a few limitations and it is nowhere near as good as their industry-leading live account. So, I’ve tested the Saxo Trader GO demo and here I’ll highlight what I like and dislike about it.
Saxo Bank Demo Account Review
Is Saxo's demo account any good?
Saxo’s demo account is hit-and-miss. The real, live platform is institutional grade with most things, most traders could want. But, the Saxo demo is a bit of a letdown. It’s great for functionality and getting a glimpse at the look and feel, but the market range is limited. For instance, you cannot trade indices or commodities (as far as I could tell when testing it). Also, when you first open it up you only have access to around 150 stocks, I had to go into the research tab to enable forex and CFDs. Plus, pricing is delayed (which it also is on the main platform), but it would be better to give potential customers some betting insight into this epic platform, than what is currently on show.
- Excellent platform
- High virtual balance
- Full functionality
- No indices
- No commodities
- Delayed pricing
