worldwide11, it all depends on the broker you are using. If it is a strict market maker broker instead of an ECN broker I would say that the performance of a demo account is better compared to a live account. ECN brokers is in my opinion do not differ that much between a demo account and a live account. Slippage can of course be somewhat more on a live account but on the whole an ECN broker is more reliable then a market maker broker when it comes to demo accounts vs live accounts.
