Open an Account with Alpari
So, you’ve made the choice to open an account with Alpari NZ Ltd. There are just a few steps remaining.
Fill in our application form.
First, take a couple of minutes to fill in our application to open an account, a fillable PDF form. Download the form, fill it in, print it out, sign it, scan it and send the scan of the signed copy to accounts at alpari.co.nz. Before opening an account, you should also take some time to read through our regulatory documents, which can be found to the right.
Send us your documents.
In addition to filling in the application, you will also need to provide us with documents that confirm your identity. To find out which documents you must provide and how to get them to us, you may refer to our listing of document requirements by country.
Fund your account and start trading.
After we have looked over your form and verified your identity, we will send you an email with information about your trading account and a link to download the MetaTrader 4 platform as well as instructions on how to fund your account. After conducting your fund transfer, keep track of your balance in MT4. As soon as you see that your funds have been credited, you can begin trading.
Download the platform.
First, download MetaTrader 4 from Alpari NZ Limited and install the program to your computer following the step-by-step instructions.
Launch MT4 and open your account.
Launch the program and fill in the form to open a demo account, indicating your desired level of leverage and starting balance. Click "Next". In the next step, choose the "Alpari-ECN" server (this server should be selected by default). Click "Next" again.
Your account is now open. Don't forget to record your login, your master password and investor password (for viewing information about the account only, not for trading). When you launch MetaTrader 4 in the future, you will need to log in by going to "File - Login" and entering your login details and password.
Your demo account will expire if you have not logged in for 30 days.
Need Another Demo Account?
There is no limit to the number of demo accounts you can open with Alpari NZ Ltd. To open another account with us, open MetaTrader 4 and go to "File - Open Account".
