Paper Trading Definition – What is Paper Trading? | CFI

paper trading

The term ‘paper trading’ originated from when traders on the stock market wanted to practice trading before trading with real money and would write their investments on paper and follow the market movements.

 

Paper trading is also sometimes called virtual trading or demo account trading and enables you to simulate a live trading environment with virtual funds before risking real money. a paper trading account helps you get used to your broker and the trading platform you are using, as well as test and refine your trading strategy. All traders should demo trade for at least 30 days before graduating to live trading.

 

CFI offers you the ability to trade the global financial markets with no risk using a free demo account. With a demo account, you get an identical trading environment to that of a real account so when you make the transition, the only difference will be using real funds.

 

Key takeaways:

 

  • Opening a paper trading account with a broker lets you get familiar with the trading platform and learn how it works from a user perspective.
  • Before you enter the markets for real, it is crucial that you can comfortably open, amend, and close trades when you need to.
  • Knowing how to efficiently use a platform removes a lot of unwanted stress when it comes time for live trading.

Forex and CFDs are leveraged products that incur a high level of risk and a small adverse market movement may expose the client to lose the entire invested capital. The vast majority of retail client accounts lose money when trading in CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss in excess of your deposited funds even if a stop loss is used and therefore, you should not speculate with capital that you cannot afford to lose and be aware of trading risks.
