Yes, before you go live you must understand that trading on a real account is very much different from demo account as your real money is involved here and you will be affected by your emotions a lot. So be patient and focus on learning and practice. As far as brokers are concerned i would say DYOR!
Right! Do not take a demo account and live account as similar ones. You'll notice a lot of differences once you have experienced both types of trading.
Started my journey well over 10 years ago total noob lol. Lost a lot and spent a lot on all sorts of training, systems, ext.. Last 5 years I decided that I will create my own strategy that makes sense to me. Finally finished in March of this year and haven't looked back since.
It is a good idea to trade in Forex since you can earn some good amount of money but only if you have knowledge about it. You must research it in detail before starting live trading and once you are done with the research, you can open a demo account and practice before using your own capital.
Success is not easy here; in my 1st year of trading I struggled a lot, but I didn’t lose my learning interest; as a result now I am making a decent amount of money! On the other hand, till now I am working on my trading skill.
