Does E*TRADE provide a demo account?

If you're just getting started in the trading game, using a demo or virtual account is pretty much mandatory before putting any real money on the line. We put E*TRADE under our microscope and examined whether they give you the opportunity to practice and get comfortable through a legit demo platform.

Bad news, demo accounts are not available at E*TRADE.
