Demo can not make you well experienced. No matter how much profit you make with demo. The real test begins when you start to trade with real money. When you trade with real money you get emotionally attached to it. When we are attached to anything, we tend to make mistakes. Demo can only help you to know the trading platform and test your strategy.

I agree with you. But for learning forex, I think, A demo account is the best option. Because you can practically test yourself in a demo account.

I completely agree with you. The demo is just to check your ability. It can not give a complete learning procedure.

Most of the traders use the demo account to check their strategy.

100% at last someone who gets it ..plus you have to trade a demo account with the same amount you are going to put in your LIVE account otherwise whats the point you leanr nothing ..anyone can win big with 50,000 demo on some lucky low pip high lots trades but that dont make you a successful trader....get $500 demo and double it 3 or 4 times ! THEN you are ready for going on live ! thats my thoughts and how i did it anyway
Live and Die by the Sword !

Emotions don't usually work in demo trading. There is no interest in trading when doing demo trading. Due to which it is often seen that even after making a lot of profit in demo trading, it is unable to make a profit in real trading. So if a trader invests a little money in real trading without demo trading, it will be much better than demo trading.

Yes exactly. The purpose of demo is to understand the system. And there is no point of taking 10,0000 balance to trade on demo. You are going to learn nothing except how to open a trade and close it. We should use demo account effectively.

This happens because we do not trade seriously on demo account thinking we won't loose anything of our own.

You need to understand that the purpose of demo is nothing but offering you insight of how your live account trading will work. But you are missing out on fear of losing of money because you are basically losing nothing in demo, while actually losing in live account.

Even though demo trading is not the same and it doesn't help you exprience your true emotions and reactions to market movements, I think it shouldn't be underestimated, it is a great way to test your knowledge.

I disagree with that I know that demo does not include real money so there is less risk involved but that does not mean trading on demo does not give you experience. It gives you the experience of trading in real look-alike conditions. The demo gives you the idea that how the market operates, how can we strategize and how can we become effective and efficient to face the live conditions of the market.

demo is a perfect place where we can see how the strategies work , i always use this approach in demo , and this helps me a lot in real account to avoid unfortunate risk and losses.

Demo trading will help you learn about the trading and many traders provide same market conditions as their live account. It is helpful but in live trading one needs to have a proper strategy.

Yes, you're right. On the one hand, real trading and demo-trading are two different things. Real trading involves a lot of emotions, while demo trading is more like a game than real business.
Still, demo trading is a very important thing, especially if you have never traded. In general, I can compare trading with checkers. You don't have much time to think, so you have to make quick decisions. This can only be achieved with practice, when you study trading patterns and learn to react instantly.
A demo account allows you to learn how to trade and recognize trading patterns, so I think it's very important.

I completely agree demo account is only for testing purposes

A demo account can help you to make experienced. It needs no caputal and it has no risks. You can test your strategy in this account.

@ethan_65 It only gives you the scope to test your strategy. In demo we can find how our strategy is work. We can find risk reward ratio and winning percentage. But the real mental battle starts in live trading.

I think demo helped me a lot to gain experience. I still use the demo accounts of my brokers Fxview and IC Markets to back test my reworked strategies.

I also periodically use the demo account of the Amarkets broker in order to test my strategies and concepts where my errors are
