When you’re a newbie in trading one should keep in mind:
1.Learn the basics on demo trading account. 2.To always be a learner. 3.Taking risks which one can afford. 4.Use low capital initially to begin with. 5.Have a trade checklist. 6.Avoid shortcuts. 7.Review your trades.
As a newbie I feel having some amount of knowledge before we actually start trading is really crucial because that is gonna be our base for the rest of our trading career and also if one wants to get early into trading then you can join similar courses like trading based monthly batches which are available on internet, they will really be a great help.
When you are new to trading always prefer to trade on a demo account first and use stop loss after then switch to a live account after practice and try spending more and more time on daily market study.
A newbie should take his time to practise in demo trading. Newbie traders are still learning, and understanding how forex trading works. If they start trading in a live account from the very beginning, they will be putting their capital at high risk. So, it is better to practise for a good amount of time, at least for a year. Practising in a demo account will help the trader strengthen his skills and understand which timeframe, risk:reward, leverage, etc suits his strategy the best.

Not all bad qualities make a person a bad trader. In fact, what kind of person does not give a shit. What matters is whether he or she makes money or not. Those who don't know how are not even considered. And those who can will be in demand with all their bad qualities. Even if there are not several.
As for the topic of the thread. When a trader is a newbie he trades on demo :)
Thousands of new traders join the forex market every month, but only a small percentage of trades manage to survive. Why? The cause of their failure is their lack of discipline & skills. As a newbie, you lack understanding of the market. To develop that, you need practice and learning. This, however, new trades are not open to. Hence, they fail. My suggestion to new traders is not to take any risk until you have a tested trading system. Also, trade for at least 6 months on demo trading before taking a risk.
I believe when a trader is a newbie they should devote their time in practicing on a demo account to understand the trading more precisely. Trading without a plan can result in drastic losses for those who jump into the process without a plan. So as a newbie learning should be a primary goal.
When I was a newbie, I was desperate to make money and took the wrong steps. Results? I blew up multiple accounts. Don’t make this mistake! Focus on your forex education first. You will make money once you know your way around the market.
