I agree with you. If a person develops good skills, controlled emotional discipline, and a solid understanding of what really moves the markets, you can make a very good income from trading. But it takes a lot of work and education in order to make a good income from it.


This is the holy grail of trading what you explain. Everyone should strive for it 😄 I agree that it takes lot of work!


I agree. That is the only holy grail of trading, in my opinion - hard work. To study, to practice, to learn from one's mistakes. There are no shortcuts.

The purpose of demo is to be familiar with the trading mechanism. Another purpose of demo is to test your strategy. Stay on demo as long as you find a proven method. Define your entry, exit, risk, reward and risk management policy on demo. Once you are convinced you can go for live trading.

the main different between demo and live is all about psychology , nothing without it , in reality there is no technical different between two.

I would suggest starting out with a demo account for at least a year before attempting to trade on a live account. You should minimalize your risks.
