I also support the idea that demo account can be useful for the newbies. There are so many people nowadays who claim that using demo account is waste of time. Surely, you won't get the same feelings with the real account but you can still test new strategies and get used to the terminal you want to use. That is the most frustrating thing when you want to open the dead quickly but you are not quite sure which button to press. I believe that it is essential to master the terminal so that you can operate it automatically.
