Alpari UK demo and live account
« on: May 12, 2009, 04:59:31 AM »
i have been using alpari UK demo account, i was wondering if their demo rate will be same as live rate, apparently seems like spread for EURGBP and EURCHF always 3, on its website it is showing some annoucement that spread will increase to 5 for EURCHF, anyone having live account can answer my Q, also if US resident can open a live account?
thanks
Frank

The spread on AlpariUK is 5 for both of those pairs at FAPTurbo trading times, but lower during the day. US residents are not allowed to open an Alpari UK account- you will need to go to Alpari US, which i believe does have a spread of 6 on EURGBP... whilst higher it is not totally unworkable, although does increase your risk.

I am running a demo account & a Classic (real) account with Alpari UK and note that the demo account speads do not appear to change, however the Classic ones widen overnight. this gives me different results, however they both make lots of money  ;D

Just for info, the spreads for demo accounts have widened since 13 May 09.
Spreads for both live and demo are now exactly the same, after 20:00 GMT.
EUR/GBP = 5
EUR/CHF = 5
GBP/CHF = 10
USD/CAD = 5

No matter how you write this up in this forum, the demo has lower spreads all the time. I have a US live account and it has the same spreads as the UK. The demo has always been lower for spreads and that is actually false advertising. I did not know this when I got the live account as nobody bothered to answer the email I sent. I am not sorry that I have an account with Alpari-US but do not be mistaken, the demo rocks every day but my live account is not at all what I expected.

I need to run a different EA on 2 different MT4 platforms.  Can they both run simultaneously on the SAME live account in Alpari? Or do I need 2 live accounts?

How about other brokers?
