How do I log in to my trading account?

When you created your trading account, you will have chosen a username and password. We will have sent both details to you in separate emails.

These will give you access to the trading account you selected in the application. To log in to our web trader platform on desktop, click here. To log in to your MT4 account, click here. To log in on our mobile platform, simply open the app and enter your account details when prompted. 

To log in to My Account, your trading account management portal, click here.

I am unable to log in to my trading account

If you have entered your password incorrectly five times, your trading account may be locked. Please request to reset your password using the password reset link.

If you have not accessed your trading account for two years or more, it will be deactivated and will need to be reactivated here.

I forgot my username and password. How do I retrieve them?

If you forgot your username, please contact us for assistance. If you forgot your password, please click here and fill in your username and email. You’ll then receive an email with a link to reset your password.

How do I change my password (Live trading accounts only)?

If you wish to change your password, you can do so from within My Account by clicking the ‘Account Settings’ tab and then ‘Change Password’ in the menu on the left side of the page.

If you’re using our mobile trading app, tap ‘More’ at the bottom of the screen (for iOS) or the menu icon at the top-left of the screen (for Android), then ‘Settings’ under the ‘My Account’ menu and then ‘Change Password’.

I received a password resest email that I didn't request. What should I do?

If you’ve received a password reset email that you didn’t request, your trading account may have been compromised. If this happens, please contact us immediately.

I received a password reset confirmation email but didn't change my password. What should I do?

If you’ve received an email confirming that your password has been changed and it wasn’t you, someone may have fraudulently changed your password, if so please contact us immediately. 

If you’re unable to contact us immediately, please secure your trading accounts by changing your email account password right away. Then use the forgotten password functionality onsite to reset your password.

If you have not used your trading account for two years or longer, it will become inactive. To reactivate your trading account, you need to complete our short online Account Reactivation Form to ensure we have your latest contact details and can reassess your trading experience.

After you submit the form, a member of our account management team will be in touch to let you know if we need anything further from you or to let you know when your trading account has been reopened.
