It is better to trade with a cent or micro account.Real money trading is different from demo trading because of human get emotional when there is money involved and trading psychology will change.


I understand what you're saying. Although I'm hoping to avoid that situation because once I start the account, I am going to try and behave like that money is gone and react as if I am with a demo account. We will see how that works, but I think I have the right personality to do that. I think a cents account wouldn't really work for me, because the losses and gains would be too small vs what I earn in my real career to actually have an emotional response to it.


Live account will certainly test your personality to its limits, that's why it is good advice to start small till you understand your reactions to losses and wins, only trade live with what you can afford to lose while improving,at the same time it has to be worth the effort ,sticking to your Plan is paramount.

Demo account can be used for testing your new trategy. So, to improve your trading you need trade demo constantly

I agree on principle, but I think the original question refers to the period one trades on a demo for training purposes.

Till the time you don't feel confident for trading on live account.

It really depends on how long you take to learn the essential aspects of trade. Some people might get off to a flying start whereas others may require more time to absorb what's going on. Once you get a hang of it and start earning good profits through demo money you can switch over to live account. But take your time because if you are not doing good on the demo account it won't be a very good decision to risk real money by trading on live account.

I've been on this demo account for almost 2 weeks, do you think i'm ready to go live on a small account?

That is a good looking demo account. What strategy do you use? If you can keep that up for a few months then you could be trading with the big boys
