I prefer more strict regulations as these makes me feel more secure. So my fingers are crossed that most of these changes will pass through and maybe spread across different countries/regulators! 😄

A much safer environment for retail traders , it takes someone to lead the way then others will follow suit , some brokers have implemented changes before this , but others are slow to follow.

If you trade manually it is different as your emotions wont let you trade it the same way.
For a robot demo and real is the same
For a good broker it should be the same but you can always copy trades from demo to real.

What you see in the charts and the bid/ask price should be the same with any good broker. However when it comes to order execution in reality, especially if the robot opens large trades, then I guess there should be a difference.

It depends on broker. Demo should not suffer from requotes, delays or other issues.
Trading with good real broker should not as well.
On the other hand recently I faced sllipage of 50,000 ms on FxPro and they are not able to explain it .

When I was doing statistical analysis of my trade history , I noticed missing information from the provider , I contacted them and there reply was its not for stats purposes , same when I was downloading FXdata from their API missing inputs.

I think when trading with a good broker slippage is market-related fact, for example. I am afraid it is not possible for it to be replicated on demo, thus there is still a difference even with good brokers.
You mean your order was delayed by 50 seconds? If so, what was your actual slippage in pips? If they are B-Booking, they don't want to explain it for sure 😄

The point is: Losing 1milion on demo account as losing 1USD in real account. I know many traders, who are great trader but on demo. When they start trading real account it is disaster.

Demo is about testing and practicing, it is wrong to say 'demo trading' as on demo you are not actually trade. What you say is totally true and I just want to clarify this aspect. We can talk about trading only when real on live accounts 😄

Trading is like football - if you don't practice you can't win the game!

That is true but demo trading is all about practice. It doesn't really capture the emotional side of trading. You need a real live account to slowly get yourself acclimatized to risking real money

'Demo or Live' sounded to me as fully newbie like 'dead or alive' 😄 maybe there is some point in it...
