LONDON, January 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Learning how to spread bet can be costly, this is why a free trading demo account is an ideal way to speculate on market movements in real-time using virtual cash without financial risk. Spread betting provider City Index explains all.
In recent events the financial markets have remained choppy due to uncertainty over the global economy. This has created a 'bearish' market of low trade volumes, which inevitably results in fluctuations of stock. So while there are still opportunities to be found during these turbulent times, traders may find the free trading demo account from City Index a beneficial way to test the water.
Through its demo account, award-winning spread betting and CFD trading broker City Index enables you to practice trading the real markets with a virtual cash balance of £2,500. The account is valid for a two-week period and you do not have to be a City Index account holder to sign up.
