Most brokers offer demo accounts. The only differences would be that certain aspects like the spread may differ based on the broker. I started trading on a demo with CedarFX on MT4 and switched to a live account later on. Never had any issues with the demo account, and support is online 24/7 so I suppose that could be helpful if you needed any assistance.
I suppose traders shouldn't choose brokers according to thia criteria. You know that demo account matters only in case if you need to elaborate a special strategy for your trading activity or edit it. Moreover, it's a good wy to practice if you're a rookie in trading and you're still learning fundamental things in it. Brokers always offer similar conditions on trading on demo account becaise it doesn't matter, everything you should have on demo is a good sum of virtual money in order to train your skills and no more. It's enough for you to trade on demo actually. Brokers should be chosen by other more vital criterias.

Of course, demo platforms are very important in trading. It helps me develop strategies and create ideas about the market.
Most brokers provide demo accounts. I traded using FP markets demo account. Their education centre offers in-depth daily and technical analysis with video tutorials, and the account expires only when inactive for a certain period of weeks.
Make sure to choose a Broker that offers consistent support and educational materials; one suggestion would be FP Markets because they have an informative Education centre and a separate blog that will help beginners vent into forex.
Even so, with a decent win rate and risk/reward ratio, a dedicated forex day trader with a decent strategy can make between 5% and 15% per month, thanks to leverage. Remember, you don't need much capital to get started; $500 to $1,000 is usually enough.
I mostly recommend trading with the FP Markets demo account because they have an Education centre that offers in-depth daily technical and fundamental analysis, which will definitely help beginners vent into FX.
