You can always rely on variety when it comes to CAPEX.

Switching between these trading instruments is simple, and easy – all the trading signals, and statistics will be visible to you in your hub once you click on your chosen instrument.

What trades can you buy and how much you can buy

Take, for example, if you wish to trade in crypto. We have all the popular cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Dogecoin. But, we also have less valued coins that you may want to jump in on, such as Cardano and Troncoin. We offer nothing but variety, no matter the currency.

Tools & Software – The different types of demo trading platforms CAPEX offers

Once you sign up to CAPEX.com, you’ll get taken to a page that shows you everything you’ll need to start off trading with demo accounts. Think of this page as your home page, or ‘hub’ – this is the basis where you’ll be doing all your demo trading. Just remember to go to the top right corner, and switch to your CFD demo account. On a white background, and laying out everything you need. From the search bar, to signals, and even a bottom tab that shows what trades you have opened and closed. Navigating this hub is as easy as clicking a button or two. You’ll have everything you need using our CAPEX trading software.

At CAPEX, you will have two different online trading platforms available that are both efficient to use and effective across both mobile and desktop. However, choosing the right one for you when trading with demo account is essential. The CAPEX WebTrader is built for more advanced traders, and focuses on advanced assessment of the markets and innovative ways of making the most out of your demo account.

The MetaTrader 5 (MT5), is more suited to those who are new traders. MT5 offers features such as personalisation to your own strategies, managing risks by putting stop-loss orders in place. These tools may not seem important when trading with a demo account, but getting the hang of one is important.

 

Resources – What is exclusive to you for your online broker demo account

As stated before, we at CAPEX leave no stone unturned with our demo trading account. We want it to be as realistic and accurate as possible – with the only difference between the demo and real trading accounts being that one is for real money.

So, one look at the resources pages available at CAPEX.com could come of great use to any uninformed trader just starting trading with a demo account. You can look over any market news that might change the value of any instruments, study the global economic calendar or even find out when your CFDs expire. All of this will come of great use to any trader, even when using a demo account.

Differences between real accounts and demo accounts

Now that you know how to navigate and use CAPEX.com, let’s clarify some detailed differences between an online broker account and an online broker demo account.

  • Lack of real investment: When using a demo trading platform, you don’t use any of your real money. So, in the case of CAPEX, we ‘give’ you a fictional sum of $50,000 that you can trade with, purely for enjoyment or learning purposes.
  • Some difficulties in simulating real time environments: We believe that we have done an excellent job replicating trading with demo accounts. However, some changes just can’t be accounted for. People are generally more reckless and brave when there are no real stakes, so take into account the psychological factors that would not affect a real trading market.
  • Spreads: An online broker demo account has general spreads, just to help the user understand the difference between the buy and sell prices. Note that real broker accounts will deal with more volatile spreads, due to sudden market changes or liquidity issues.

Instruments – What can I use my demo balance on?

Knowing when and what to trade on is your decision. After all, you have a whole virtual $50,000 to start trading with! But, in the following sections, we will tell you all the pros and cons of the best instruments we believe you can trade with on CAPEX. The best part is that most of them even apply to a real account as well.

Cryptocurrencies – Pros and Cons of investing in virtual currencies

Pros

  • Easy cash outs: Due to the likes of Bitcoin and other cryptocoins being completely digitalised, once you want to cash out, you can. There is little to process outside of what’s in your digital wallet.
  • Limited supply: There is only 21 million Bitcoins that can be ‘mined’. While this may seem like a disadvantage, it only helps you and your online broker demo account at CAPEX. The more crypto coins you buy when they are low, the more they will be worth when crypto coins production slows and the market soars.

 Cons

  • Volatility: As such an unknown and new addition to the market, the volatility of cryptocurrency is at an all time high. Knowing your timing when investing in crypto is key, otherwise you could suffer some serious losses with your demo trading platform. Glady, it is just virtual money.
  • Unregulated: Cryptocurrencies were created privately, meaning they face little public regulation. Be careful when using your account to get too into trading with crypto with unknown sources, as in some other places online, it is frequently used for scamming. However, that is not something you have to worry about when using your demo account.

Forex – Pros and cons of investing in currencies

Pros

  • High stability: Forex is known to have more stability than the rest of its counterparts, mainly due to other contributing factors such as its accessibility and high profit rate.
  • Accessibility: You can trade non stop on Forex. It’s open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week – making it easier to schedule some serious trading with your Forex demo account, part of your CAPEX main account.
  • Technical analysis: Forex is great if you don’t like to spend too much time analysing and strategizing. The only real charts you need to look at are graphs of the prices of goods internationally, rather than extensive analysis of various other factors.
  • Leverage: Due to the ease in which you can buy and sell currencies, you’ll find you have a lot of leverage trading with forex. Once you get a hang of the many resources out there on leveraging the forex market, you’ll find some serious success trading with demo account.

 Cons

  • Volatility: The forex market can be highly volatile when you’re betting short term, so it may not suit those looking for a quick profit.

Shares – Pros and Cons of trading stocks in business

Pros

  • Big gains: Everyone has heard the tales of investing in Facebook when it began, and reaping the rewards as a result. This is completely possible for you to try with your online broker demo account at CAPEX. As long as you do your research, you could find the stock where you win big.
  • Great liquidity: The stock market unpredictability can work to your advantage. You won’t have to wait on transactions or transfers with shares – you sell your balance when you’ve reached your limits, and with shares, you’ll get your demo funds back.

Cons

  • Volatility: Due to public traded business constantly rising and falling in value at such a high rate, the stock market is renowned for being one of the most unpredictable out there. Always have your eyes on the prize when trading with demo accounts.
  • Too much choice: The sheer amount of choice available in shares can be overwhelming, especially for a new trader. Be careful not to get caught up in all of the hype, and waste your demo balance without proper research!

Indices – Pros and Cons of investing in index funds

Pros

  • Steady profit: Trading with Indices sees low risk, which is a huge plus for anyone – even those with online broker demo accounts. Because they are diversified bonds, they protect against major losses, and their tight security sees a slow but steady rise in profit.
  • Better decision making: Looking at indices is a good way to track the overall health of the market at the minute. Taking a look at how indices are doing should help you develop better decision making skills when trading with demo account at CAPEX.

Cons

  • Lack of flexibility: Index funds are heavily tied down by policies and regulations, thus making for a lack of flexibility than other instruments may have. Diversified bonds can be hard to change on a whim, and sometimes, even while using your demo broker online account, you’ll need to make split second decisions.
  • No big wins: This stability and diversification means that the value of index funds cannot rise or drop sharply. So, if you’re looking to win big with your demo trading platform, indices aren’t for you.

Strategies – What should I try out with my CAPEX online broker demo account?

As you’re starting out, it’s important you don’t get too caught up in technicalities. Our demo trading platform will sort out the complicated stuff, you just need to focus on choosing a Trading strategy that is effective, and suits you. Here’s three popular trading strategies that you might find useful with your online broker demo account at CAPEX.

Day trading

Day Trading is exactly what it sounds like. Buying and selling trades in one day, and seeing how much funds you can come away with. No positions are held overnight – everything is closed at the end of the working day. Though it is regularly done by professional traders, seeing how you function putting aside a working day to day trading can be a great learning purpose.

It also works better in more fluctuating and flexible markets – such as stocks, and crypto – as you’re more likely to see a rapid incline in profit.  Day trading would not suit the likes of indices, bonds or forex – there is too little to gain by closing a position every day with stable trades such as these.

We’d recommend day trading strategies to any of the online broker demo accounts who want to see their demo funds rise exponentially – and get an idea of what it’s like to open and close positions on a daily basis, with proper analysis.

Position trading

Position trading is more analytical. Position trading is when you use long term charts – daily, weekly, monthly – to analyse any potential trends or growths in particular trades, and try to determine the current market direction. Position traders will use their analysis to hop on the ‘wave’ of the trend they have studied, and try to ride that wave until its market peak. Position trading would suit someone who is patient and willing to wait out a trend, by holding a position and allowing it to see profit.

So, when you are trading with a demo account, you have to trust in your own analysis of the market, and trust that your analysis is correct. Position trading can work across any trade, but it’s often used when trading in forex. If you want to get into currencies and see the best results with your online broker demo account, we’d recommend you try to learn position trading with your demo account at CAPEX.

Swing trading

Swing trading, in many ways, is the opposite of position trading. At the end of trends, the market usually faces some unpredictability and volatility while the next trend tries to establish itself. Swing traders make the most of this unpredictability, by buying and selling whenever they see fit based on how volatile the trade becomes.

Here is how to swing trade. Swing traders will hold for short periods of time, but usually hold more than a day until the volatility settles. Analysing these end of trend moments usually utilises a lot of study, and algorithms which try to determine the direction of the market next.

We’d recommend swing trading for those who want to get into the likes of cryptocurrency, which at the minute is a huge trend. It will inevitably face a slump, and using your online broker demo account at CAPEX to try to predict this could be great analysis for you.

Conclusion – Plenty to try out with your online broker demo account!
