I am not going to take part in this thread anymore - there are way too many people out there that are convinced it is quite possible, but then haven't done it.
Surely if you made a lot of cash (enough to live a very comfortable life ) you are not going to take part in forums and try to prove to others that it is quite possible, and you have done it. I would travel the world and enjoy myself - definitely not take part in forum discussions. Maybe I have got it all wrong, maybe if you 'have made it' you need to prove to the world that it is possible. I would be too busy living the dream life to snoop around in forums - but maybe that's just me.
Let this thread run rife with people proving it is possible so more and more newcomers to fx can invest and buy all sorts of money-promising things.
Your account is not HFT but is arbitrage. High Frequency Trading need servers to run near liquidity providers, you are lucky if you find rent space for 50,000$ a months and I'm not talking about other costs. There is no way you can afford that cost on your demo account.
The strategy that you are promoting is arbitrage. It uses two different brokers, one faster broker as a price feed and one slower broker to trade. That strategy does not work on real account, and you know that. It's not even worth electricity to let the computer run.
$1 to $10 million is possible (nothing is impossible), though the correct question is 'how long will it take?'. You would need to have a pretty sound system to trade with (or a good EA). If your system was a HFT scalper that increased risk with growth then obviously you would get there quicker than a system that made trend /reversal trades that have to be open for weeks or months at a time.
People often limit their thoughts to their own experiences and fail to think 'outside the box': you can see this when folks are 'ecstatic' over 5% per month returns from forex (you can make a lot more than that if you have the right system).
