Opening a Paper Trading Account

Opening a Paper Trading Account

What is a Paper-Trading Account?
A Paper-Trading Account allows users to practice trading on an account with virtual funds. The user will not use any of their real funds, allowing them to trade with virtually no risk but at the cost of not obtaining any actual gains made from these trades. Paper Trading Accounts simulate real-life markets, allowing users to see how they would perform trading in the markets today.
Compared to demo accounts which also allow users to trade with virtual funds, Paper-Trading Accounts save all trades made by the user while demo accounts usually delete the users’ trades after 1 day, making it difficult for them to monitor the changes in their portfolios.
Beginners/First Time Traders are recommended to open a Paper-Trading Account to teach themselves how to navigate their accounts and how to make trades. Paper-Trading Accounts allow users to trade with up to$1 million in virtual funds.
