If it were my account, I would stay on demo with an initial investment comparable to what will be invested in my real trading account.
If $1000.00 US is invested in a real account, then that is the same amount the demo account should have in it.
Also, the real account should be with the same broker that the demo account is with.
Both accounts (live and demo) should be identical in configuration.
Example: Demo: Standard account with $1000.00 + 1:50 leverage through the Oanda US office Live: Standard account $1000.00 + 1:50 leverage through the Oanda US office
By doing it this way, if a trade system is consistently profitable on demo, when the system is switched to the live account, the trading experience from the broker should be very similar providing of course the market conditions have remained the same.
Once you have a good feel on operating the platform and at least have a good system which you've verified yourself by demo, then you can start opening a small account. The fastest would be around 1 month.

I think demo account for life long. Bcz sometime needed check your system n build a fine tune system etc. At first need at least 1-1.5 year need practice with all system and build a reliable strategy what you can understand easy way. Before trade Forex need some experience, By demo trade you can get it.
