Years ago, that was exactlly my dilema. Demo trading for years had great results. Friend of mine told me why don't you trade your strategies live? So I took loan from the bank and started live. I was able to repay that loan very first year :) But nowadays I wouldn't risk so much.
Demo account is the mirror image of a live account. For beginners in forex trading, demo trading is the best as it will help the traders to learn how to trade and have some practical experience of trading. Before risking your own capital, you must have experience in it. Demo trading will also help you to see what all brokers offer in terms of spreads, leverage, trade execution speed and bonus, if any. Further, if you like the offerings of the broker you can continue to go live with that broker and try your trading plans and strategies over there with your real money.
HIGH RISK WARNING: Foreign exchange trading carries a high level of risk that may not be suitable for all investors.
Leverage creates additional risk and loss exposure. Before you decide to trade foreign exchange, carefully consider your investment objectives, experience level, and risk tolerance.
You could lose some or all of your initial investment. Do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Educate yourself on the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial or tax advisor if you have any questions.
