I would never suggest that a new trader open a live account, there is so much you can learn for free by simply trading on a demo account.
If you can't make a return trading demo, you won't make a return on a live account. My advice is to create or learn a strategy, trade it successfully on a demo account and then move to a live account. If you don't have the patience to do this, you won't have the patience to make it as a trader - trading is all about logic, patience and discipline.
Just my opinion, everyone is different...
If I can do it, so can you!
