It's true that there are differences and a demo account can't prepare you for the psychological aspects of trading on a live account. However, demo accounts still have a lot to teach us and they're the best hands on tool for traders. I also think we can all avoid some early losses by practicing on one. The best way to avoid being affected by the changes is to do research on psychological trading problems (like analysis paralysis, ego issues, etc.) so that you have knowledge of them and to trade with good risk management precautions, as that can take away some of the anxiety.

Trading via a demo account is easier as compared to live trading. The main reasons are that the demo is a virtual trading account and there are no potential risks of losing your real money.

In demo account we don't feel anything if we are going lose any trade. But in live trading we get restless if a trade goes against us. To deal with it, we need to develop a good trading psychology along with trading skills.

With demo, you just know that the monetary aspect when trading is not real, so you are not mentally affected when you made some losses, that's why it is easier to trade in demo.

First impression trading in the demo is easy because no emotion pre4ssure when trading use demo account, also initial capital on demo account usually very big more than $5000, and we know if amount capital also impacted to the strength of account, ideally use bigger capital and low capital when using same position size will strongest use bigger capital to withstand price movement

Demo is easy because you are not connected with the live market but getting same quotes as real traders are getting. There is no real monetary pressure because of which you're trading stress free.

It depends on you how you are thinking about trading. Try to consider a demo account as live trading and make a journal with your own strategies, thoughts and live trades. It would be good for you if you made a journal about your trading with the demo. You can utilize these experiences when you start trading with a real account, and your mistakes will be small.

Demo account provides a risk free environment where traders are not afraid to take chances. Even if you lose in demo account, you will not have to face the feeling of losing actual money. When you lose real money, that can hit you quite strongly, as you will realize that this is not a game. Your actual money that you worked for and earned is gone.
Demo accounts won't prepare you for loses. Only live account can prepare you for that.

Yea, you are just not scared of losing money while trading in demo, so that can be one of the reason why demo trading is too easy, as compared to live trading.

@skihav Yes demo is to understand the market mechanism before trading in live market. Demo is also useful for testing our strategy and updating our strategy.

There are numerous factors which make demo trading easy;

1. Risk free: You can freely trade on the demo account without fearing to loose your deposit.
2. Learning platform: You can learn how to trade on the demo account as it is generally the replica of the live trading platform. Thus you get a better idea of what is going on in the market as it is clearly discounted on the demo charts as well.
3. Building and testing strategies: The demo set up works as a testing platform for your ea's, robots, strategies etc.

In short demo trading is easier when you are trading with a genuine broker (like Fxview, HYCM, Hotforex etc) who do not manupulate the prices and fetch similar price feeds and spreads on both demo and live accounts.
Thanks for the answer. Found my answers.

Of course, demo trading is a much easier process. Emotions don't usually work here. That's why I go to constant profit. So demo trading is much easier.

Demo trading seems easy because we trade with virtual money and do not trade with proper risk management. In live trading, emotions also play a critical role in our trading decisions. Traders neglect both of these in live trading.

Agreed, but traders have to understand that demo trading is essential for learning and improving your knowledge and get better in time.

In demo there is no psychological pressure of winning or losing a trade. In live trading, we get moved by our emotions like fear and greed. But in demo such emotions do not exist.
