So why is demo account popular trading feature?

Answer lies in the fact that traders have opportunity to test the trading platform and try out different instruments and strategies to see if they can expand their trading experience. Trading on 24option demo platform is without risk for your own money, since traders get from this brokerage a certain amount of virtual money for them to participate and place trades on demo version of trading platform.

South African traders can easily use a variety of available underlying assets and other mechanisms to enhance their own strategies and analysis in the trading process. This has shown to be extremely useful for all levels of traders, especially for those who have just joined the 24option trading platform.

On demo platform, traders can see how it actually looks like when you trade CFDs. Great thing regarding demo is that is risk free, because you don’t invest your real money, it is only virtual one.

This way, 24option enables traders in South Africa to practice and use some of trading techniques and strategies to see will it turn out to be successful or not. Later on, when you feel confident enough in your trading skills, you can just switch from demo trading to real one and place trades in numerous underlying assets.
