Demo account is useful for both newbies and experienced traders. The latter ones still use demo account to back-test their methodologies.

Before you start trading even on a demo account, you have to go through a certain theory.

I think yes. Because the demo account is the most effective way to learn forex perfectly. Every trader should use demo account at first to learn forex before using real account.

When you are ready to trade on a demo account, you must have a specific strategy and plan

A demo account is certainly a great thing to practice and gain a good trading experience. Still, there is a disadvantage that will not allow you to break into the market immediately. This minus is that on a demo account, you don't feel any emotions, because you are not trading with real money. It is very important to be able to contain your emotions and control yourself. A lot of traders have lost their investments because of greed. So you need to open a small account in which you will trade small sums and slowly train your aging and self-control.

Demo accounts are the replica of live account and are used for the purpose of learning the platform and testing the strategies, EAs. However, the forex market is unpredictable. It is not 100% that if you are making profits on demo account, you are gonna make the same profits on live account. In live account, you will be using your own money so one has to be more cautious while placing the trades.

In any case, you need to familiarize yourself with the platform of the broker you want to trade with, and the demo account really helps a lot with this.

If you are a new trader, you should do demo trading first. Demo trading helps to develop your skills. There is no such thing as demo trading to use strategy as a new trader. Demo trading is very beneficial in education. In this case, a good broker is needed. A broker can take a trader to a good platform.

Demo trading is done in a way that you can understand and strategize the live account but without money psychology. However it is very useful for the beginner to learn everything that there is for the trading.

live account can be beneficiary for acquiring real trading experience but first of all they have to finish basic level of trading, otherwise this approach will not work at all.

It’s not enough but it’s definitely necessary. Demo account is the only way for a new trader to get a feel of the broker before live trading. I personally have used Fxview but you can choose any broker you prefer like Oanda, Alpari or London Capital Group. Just make sure that it is regulated, stay away from scams!

Demo trading is definitely necessary. They might not be enough as they cannot simulate the emotions you might feel when there is real money at stake but I think you can adjust your mindset to treat demo money like real money as much as possible. Regardless, it is useful for testing your strategies before you risk your capital.

I think only demo can not help you to make prepare yourself for real trading. You have to research and follow many more things to become experience in trading.

Demo trading is one of the essential steps before live trading, but not the only one.

Demo account, of course, is important before real trading, but do not forget that you must have your own strategy and trading plan.

Other than demo trading, you can also do a free babypips course to enhance your knowledge about trading and refer some youtube channels as well.
