Hi bro, it’s more than one year & what’s going on there? I’m really interested to know your current trading status!

While you may make a strong point, a demo account is also best for beginners to test out new strategies and give the trader an overall idea of how things work in the live market, which may increase confidence and make them less insecure about making on the spot decisions. It’s a great way to practice trade and understand techniques and methods.

I agree with your opinion, but I think that a demo account will help newbies learn better about the world of trading. When a newbie is trading with real money with a small account, the loss will still make them feel something, as they lost their money, however small. They will not feel that way in a demo account. They will learn about the market, and they will be able to judge and tweak their strategies. A demo account has certain drawbacks, but I don’t think that newbies should eliminate a demo account from their learning path.

Yes, a demo account is essential, especially if you are a beginner. Demo accounts will assist you in developing your own strategies that will ultimately benefit you in your real account.

No. It is not mandatory to trade with a demo account, but why don't you want to trade with demo accounts? Nobody starts making hundreds of dollars on their first day of trading. Demo accounts are there to help you build trading skills and get familiar with the trading system until you are ready to take actual risk.

When I first started trading, I used a demo account to associate myself with the method, which has helped me understand where I am heading as a trader.

Demo trading is a must for every beginner in my opinion. Starting with a real account in the first place will be confusing and overwhelming for them. Also, it helps us to check the trading conditions offered by a broker. And even experienced traders use demo accounts for forward testing their strategies. I still use my demo account along with a live account as it helps me learn and test my trades without risking real money in the first place.

using a trading strategy in a demo account is really a good approach , this approach is very supportive to avoid unfortunate risk and losses.

There is no rule that you have to do demo trading before trading live. But it is recommended because how will you trade if you have no skills and don’t understand the trading platform? Demo trading helps with these two, and it is a good enough reason to get started with it before taking a risk.

No one is forcing you to demo trade if you don’t want to. But it would be a risk to trade without practising on a demo account as you may not know how to proceed further with live trading. So, demo trade for a while and when you think you are ready for live trading, go ahead with it.

If traders want to make a successful trading career then I would say a demo account is mandatory. Demo accounts help new traders in learning the complexities of the market and familiarise them with the trading platform.

It's hard for me to imagine how much money a trader will lose if he doesn't use a demo account.
People should understand that this is a great opportunity to learn the trading platform.
No matter who says what, but a trading platform is a heavy and multifunction platform. That's why a trader should be able to study all the tools and understand how timeframes work and how to look for patterns.
It can seem like an exciting adventure.
But it is not necessary to trade on the demo account for too long.
You need to train your emotions.
That's what real money is for!

To begin with, I believe that demo accounts are necessary for experimentation, as they enable us to prevent unfortunate losses and risks when dealing with real money. Also, we get to learn our hands on trading and various tools involved.

They are, of course. They allow you to practise trading without risking real money by using virtual money. Demo trading can be very useful for evaluating the performance of a trade strategy and for trader education. If you jump into the live market without practising then you’ll end up losing all your funds.

If you are new to trading then definitely it is important for you to first trade on the demo account and then shift to a real trading account. It is for the benefit of you only, to understand the trading deeply before trading real funds.

RSI and moving average seem to be good indicators. These are the mostly used indicators around the world. They will help you view the market technically. There are also other indicators as well which you can use also to analyze the market.

There is no compulsion. But why do you want to enter into a market which you don’t know the ins and outs of ? A successful trader has a profitable strategy in hand. As a newbie, if you fail to have it, the market is going to give you a hard time. Demo trading is helpful to come up with a profitable strategy, saving your time and money. So, never skip it!
