ThinkPortal

 

What is ThinkPortal?

ThinkPortal is the secure client area of ThinkMarkets. It allows you to manage your trading accounts, access additional features available only to live account holders and deposit and withdraw funds to your accounts.

How do I register to use ThinkPortal?
You can get access to the ThinkPortal in a number of ways. If you’ve signed up for a live or demo account, you’ll automatically get access. You can also sign up directly for a ThinkPortal account by simply clicking ‘New Account’ on the ThinkPortal login page and filling out the form.

How can I log in?
You can log in to the portal by visiting ThinkPortal and entering your registered email address and password.

I have forgotten my password – what do I do?
At the login page, click on ‘Forgot Username or Password?’ and enter your registered email address. You’ll then be sent instructions on how to retrieve your login details.

Why can’t I see all the features of the ThinkPortal?
ThinkPortal has some features which may not be applicable to your account type. For example, if you only have a demo account, you’ll not see information on depositing funds. You’ll always see the features applicable to you. As your account type and status changes, your portal access will also evolve.

What is My Profile?
My Profile is the area of the site that stores your personal information, such as your date of birth and contact information. This is automatically populated with information you’ve provided when signing up for your account.

Can I update My Profile?
Your ability to update your profile information depends on the status of your account. For example, if you have a live account already, you are not able to edit your address directly and must contact us. If you only have a demo account, you can easily update your details.

Can I change my trading account password?
Yes, you can. Simply choose ‘Live Accounts’ or ‘Demo Accounts’ from the menu and within the list of your accounts, click the settings ‘gear’ icon next to the account number. You’ll then need to enter the new password and confirm for the change to become active.

I need to change my leverage – how do I do this?
Go to the ‘Live Accounts’ or ‘Demo Accounts’ view and click the settings ‘gear’ icon next to the current leverage. From the dropdown menu you can then choose your desired account leverage. Please note that there may be leverage restrictions in place based on your account balance. 

Can I change my account currency?
You are not able to change the currency of your trading account through the portal. This is because you may have existing trading history which would become inaccurate after making such a change. You can easily apply for a new account and select your desired currency.

How do I apply for a new live account?
If you want to sign up for a live account, or an additional live account, simply select ‘Account Request’ from the ‘My Account’ menu. You’ll then be taken to the applicable application form.

Can I open additional demo accounts?
Yes, you can! Select ‘Create demo account’ from the onsite menu and complete the form. The account will be created in a few seconds and you’ll then be able to log in.

Our virtual private server (VPS) allows you to stay connected to your platform wherever you are. To register for a VPS you must first have met the minimum requirements, which is a minimum account funding level of $2,000 for VPS Pro and $5,000 for VPS Pro Plus. Once you have met the requirements, simply complete the form and your VPS request will be processed. You’ll receive an email notification once the VPS is ready to go.

What is Autochartist and how do I use it?
