Retail FX broker Alpari Limited has informed its clients that, effective May 16, 2016, there will be changes to the trading conditions for demo accounts.
From May 16, 2016, a demo account will be considered active if a trade has been made from this account at least once every 14 days. The previous requirement was a trade to be made once every 21 days.
Alpari has been changing the trading conditions lately. About two weeks ago, it announced it was terminating its program of paying interest on client deposits. The program was introduced in March 2015, two months after Alpari UK appointed special administrators in the wake of the Swiss Franc spike of January 15, 2015.
