I agree with you. If a person develops good skills, controlled emotional discipline, and a solid understanding of what really moves the markets, you can make a very good income from trading. But it takes a lot of work and education in order to make a good income from it.

This is the holy grail of trading what you explain. Everyone should strive for it 😄 I agree that it takes lot of work!

I agree. That is the only holy grail of trading, in my opinion - hard work. To study, to practice, to learn from one's mistakes. There are no shortcuts.

The purpose of demo is to be familiar with the trading mechanism. Another purpose of demo is to test your strategy. Stay on demo as long as you find a proven method. Define your entry, exit, risk, reward and risk management policy on demo. Once you are convinced you can go for live trading.

the main different between demo and live is all about psychology , nothing without it , in reality there is no technical different between two.

Both accounts are essential for learning.

I would suggest starting out with a demo account for at least a year before attempting to trade on a live account. You should minimalize your risks.

Basically they both are same the difference is that the live account has real money involved, although you have traded in the Demo accounts , their is this psychological factor comes into play which might hinder your decisions.

It's almost identical. Only thing is that there is a difference from a psychological standpoint.

I think beginners will be surprised to learn how many experienced traders use demo accounts to test strategies.

For me, demo is good to be familiar with how the trading platform works. However, if you want the real trading experience, you need some money on the line. It doesn't have to be big, you just need to have the same feelings or emotions when trading a bigger account. With demo, you tend to be reckless with your trades because you have nothing to lose and that might lead to a bad habit.
Trading is a marathon, not a sprint.

The goal of the demo is to become acquainted with the trading mechanism. Another goal of the demo is to put your strategy to the test. Continue to demo until you find a proven method.

On demo, define your entry, exit, risk, reward, and risk management policies. You can begin live trading once you are convinced.

It is very important but you can learn so much on a demo so that when you go live you have 95% of the skills you need

I'm still learning how to trade on a demo account, but I'm worried about not being ready for a real account yet.
I am afraid that I will lose real money quickly.
