IQ Option Demo on All Devices:
IQ Option Demo Online
- Standard Online Trading Platform
Your first trading experience with IQ Option will probably be on its standard online trading platform (web trading platform). When you first open a demo account and choose the “Trade Now” option, it opens the web trading platform.
You can access the online/web trading platform with your computer or with a mobile device. The mobile user interface has some minor limitations compared to the online platform you can access with your pc. For example, you can only open one chart at a time with the mobile interface, while the pc interface allows you to open more charts next to each other in the space at the top of your screen.
Although the online platform is convenient to use, the desktop trading platform (for your pc) and other apps (for mobile devices) offer a better trading experience.
- PWA (Progressive Web App)
IQ Option’s PWA offers a better online trading experience for mobile users than the standard online trading platform. After downloading the PWA, it can be opened from an icon on your mobile device, which is more convenient and saves you time, compared to the standard online trading platform. The PWA interface also gives you more screen space for chart analysis, trading, etc.
The PWA can be used by Android and iOS users and non-EEA traders can trade binary options with it. For more features and a better trading experience, non-EEA traders with iOS devices who do not trade binary options can use the standard iOS mobile app instead of the PWA.
IQ Option Demo Download for PC
If you’re trading with a personal computer, IQ Option’s desktop trading app is the preferred way to trade. The desktop application gives you a smoother and faster trading experience than the online trading platform.
While you wait for the online trading platform to open, like in the image above, you can click on DOWNLOAD APP (indicated by the red box) to download the Windows or Mac desktop application. Then you need to install the application. After it has been installed, you can open the desktop trading platform by clicking the IQ Option icon on your home screen. This is a direct and much faster way to open the trading platform than the online (web) option.
If you would like to skip the online (web) platform and get started with the desktop trading app immediately, choose one of the following:

How to use the platform:
IQ Option Demo vs Real Account
Demo trading is an excellent way to learn the ropes without blowing your hard-earned money. One of the best advantages of IQ Option’s demo account is that it doesn’t expire. This gives you sufficient time to master the markets and the different mechanisms of trading before you enter the market with real money.
Many traders don’t know when the right time is to start trading with a live account and real money. It makes sense to first develop consistent profitability on a demo account for a substantial amount of time before trading with a live account. Market conditions change from time to time, which means that a certain trading strategy or approach that performs well in certain conditions could easily fail in different market conditions. So, it is vital for aspiring traders to be aware of this, even though they might have traded profitably for several consecutive months.
Before switching from a demo to a live account, you need to understand proper risk management, correct position sizing, and all the other concepts that are fundamental to successful trading. You also need to have your emotions under control and exercise strict discipline when trading.
Another vital characteristic of IQ Option’s demo account is that it closely resembles its live trading account. There are no restrictions compared to the live account - you have access to the same assets, spreads, expiration times, leverage, charting, technical indicators, drawing tools, news feed, etc.
*Of course, the demo account cannot simulate what is called ‘market impact’, but this only makes a big difference when really large orders are executed.
How to Reset the IQ Option Demo Account
IQ Option’s demo trading account gives you $10,000 of virtual money to practice with. However, if your balance moves below $10,000 it can be replenished at any time. So, each time you test a new trading strategy, for example, you can enjoy a fresh start by resetting your account balance if it is below the initial $10,000 mark.
In this example, the demo account is on $4,350. To top it up to the original $10,000 you can simply do the following:
- Click on “Practice Account” next to the “Deposit” button at the top of the trading platform.
- Then click “Top Up” next to “Practice Account”.
- The practice account will be instantly replenished to $10,000.
