Here are some frequently asked questions.

Regarding use for MT4 and MT5

You will be able to trade after your identity has been verified, but only our own trading tools can be used. MT4 and MT5 will be available for use after deposit. This means that you cannot use it unless you make a deposit.

Whether or not to withdraw money

Withdrawals cannot be made until the account has been opened and the account has been activated. Therefore, please be sure to complete the activation process.

Trade with demo account

easyMarkets also has a demo account. From the menu, simply switch “LIVE” at the bottom to “DEMO” to complete the setting.

Is it free to open an account?

There are no fees to open an account with easyMarkets. Everything can be set up completely free of charge.

Time required to open an account

Opening an account only takes a few minutes. Other steps include identity verification and telephone authentication, and this step takes about 1 to 2 days in total. This is because everything is analog compatible.

Can I get an account opening bonus?

The account opening bonus will be automatically reflected in your account once your identity has been verified by phone. However, there is a caveat: you must complete the process from account opening to identity verification within 30 days. The bonus will expire after 30 days.
