How to Get Started Trading CFD’s with a Stock Demo Account

QuickTrade Equities Demo – Learn to Trade With Reduced Risk

We know if you’re reading this, you’re interested in becoming a fully-fledged trader on the stock market. Ready to pit your wits against global trading as a whole. Fired up to start building a portfolio that’s strong and diverse, off of the back of market growth you’ve identified and embraced, and slumps you’ve predicted and deftly avoided.

But we also know that you think you’re a little wet behind the ears, and you still want a little more guidance and practice before you start sending your hard-earned rands into that ebbing and flowing market.

The stock market is rife with temperamentality, nuance, and volatility. It takes knowledge to identify these characteristics, and experience to know how to stay agile as they arise. Knowledge and experience will only come in the doing of things, so the good news is, that QuickTrade can help. Before you trade a moment, with a cent of your own money, we have a platform you can use, to demo the experience of real-time investment market situations. It’s ideal for taking the time to hone your skills, build your understanding of market behaviours and the events that may arise, and, most vitally, it’s a chance to make mistakes – mistakes, in the real investment world, that could be costly.

Here’s how to start:
