How long did you spend on a demo account before going into real trading?
I've been trading 3 weeks on demo accounts. It's 2 different accounts because I started a new one to replicate exactly what my real account will be, the other is now a mess about account to play with.
I've got 3 consecutive profitable weeks totalling about 16% with 6% dd. I'm keen to get started, but still making to odd silly mistake. How does my record sound to people who are experienced?
Demo you can run it your trading system without any loss of money, Actually most people seem misconception of being trader, Trader is not depend how good your make a money, but a REAL trader is he know how good he manage the risk.
For me, loss is our enemy and profit is our friend, so you must overcome the enemy when your test ur system. I usually use a Demo account for testing my trading system and I make a challenge to Try as best as I can to Margin Call the demo account.. Not by taking how much i get money from it. Believed me, when your system are being tested and difficult to get MC, profit will come like a Magic.
