This Demo is designed as an introduction to the platform and its functionality. It is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment. In an actual live trading environment, commissions and fees would be applied at the close of every business day, and a statement would be generated. Daily statements and the associated fees are not applied within the demo environment and as such, those fees, which may have a material impact on your account, are not reflected in final profit and loss calculations within this demo. Other factors such as latency fill price and execution times may also differ from live trading results. It is not intended for this demo to be an accurate representation of actual profits or losses that may occur in a live trading environment.


There is a substantial risk of loss in trading commodity futures and options on futures. Only risk capital should be used when trading futures or options. Investors could lose more than their initial investment. The lower the Day Trade Margin the higher the leverage and riskier the trade. Leverage can work for you as well as against you, it magnifies gains as well as losses. You should consider carefully whether futures or options are appropriate to your financial situation.  Past performance is not indicative of future results. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit.
