Which Tickmill demo is better? MT4 of CQG?

Home > Reviews > Tickmill > Tickmill Demo Account

Tickmill has two demo accounts you can paper trade on. Either MT4 or CGQ, both are brilliant platforms but the demo versions leave a lot to be desired. In our Tickmill demo account review, I tell you what I like and dislike about them.

Tickmill Demo Account Reviewed

Name: Tickmill Demo Account

Description: Tickmill's demo account lets you trade via MT4 or CQG with up to £1m in virtual funds on 578 markets for 30 days. 71% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs and spread bets with this provider

Are Tickmill's demo accounts any good?

No, in a word. Which is a massive shame because both CQG and MT4 are both brilliant platforms, but for some reason Tickmill’s paper trading versions are hopeless. Firstly, I’ve already tested 7 other demo accounts today so I am not going through the rigmoral of trying to set up another MT4 even though you can set your own leverage and virtual balance. So when CQG figuratively spat in my face and refused to show off its brilliance I became even more tired and irritable. CQG is an amazing trading platform. Tickmill’s live version of it is one of the best around. If you are a high-frequency retail futures trader it gives you almost institutional capabilities. But the demo refused to do anything. In summary, if you want a Tickmill demo, don’t bother, just open a real account and see what it’s really about.
