The demo helps to learn trading skills. It is very difficult to make money from trading if you have incomplete knowledge about the forex trading Therefore, all types of analysis should be practices through demo trading.
The main goal of demo trading is to meet a trader with trading activity. It's a quite good instrument for acquiantance with various oeculiarities and features of trading activity. It literally teaches you how to trade. It's a great empirical method I guess. There are no alternatives to it. Even if you will watch some videos where traders make traders, it won't give you such experience as your own demo-trading will. In my opinion, the main two things in the process of learning trading activity are theory (videos,courses,information) and demo-trading. All brokers offer such a function. You can also create, edit and test strategies on demo account.
Demo accounts offer an opportunity for traders who are interested in learning more about forex trading or who want to test out a new type of trading strategy without putting their money at risk. But it will not give you the experience of actually trading.

Absolutely, I would just say that a demo trader need to however keep trading realistic, and not use a bigger amount in demo when in live he would be using a smaller account.
Demo trading is not mandatory, but it is essential to test and enhance your trading skills. The purpose of demo trading is to strategize and develop practices that can make you a trader who knows how to minimise risks.
Demo accounts are a great way to get your hands on in trading. Especially if you’re a beginner, you should start trading on a demo account however it does not always give you a real experience. You'll get to experience some things like difference in spreads, re-quotes, slippage, over-trading and other emotional issues while trading live only.
Although beginner traders can jump to use the real account, however, it's not good to step, and maybe will close to suicide account, trading forex looks simple in theory, but actually complex and complicated in reality, this is need skill to work profitable, demo account is a good and free place to learn how to manage money and finding good and suitable trading strategy.
The purpose of demo trading is to allow traders to trade without risking real money. It's also an opportunity for them to explore the different features of a particular platform before actually using it with their own money.
