Is demo trading enough before real account?

500% growth for example as you mentioned on a micro account before funding more into the live account, it is not possible with good money management. It will take probably years with that kind of strategy you are referring to. Better to have really low expectations like max 100% profit within a year, even 60% is really a good return before funding more money.

It's not possible with or without good money management?

mlawson71,
all depends on what you mean. If you are referring to in taking an incredible high risk of the trading account it is possible but only for a short period of time, in the long run, trading with a very high risk strategy it will catch up, and eventually it will blow the account.

Demo account gives you a good virtual market experience, its never easy to enter the real market but still it helps you in preparing mentally.

Whatever account you use though, has anyone tried trading with the Web-based version of MT4? I know that the software developer recently added a bunch of new indicators to it (https://theforexreview.com/2016/02/15/mt4-webtrader-adds-bill-williams-technical-analysis-indicators/) and that supposedly made it more practical, but I have concerns about its safety. Any opinions?

Good point mlawson71, I have to echo your doubt. As MT4 is more and more accepted by brokers and even retail bankers like Citibank or others...I had a feeling that it may be tackled by very expert IT people; that means, if your EA/Strategy has any storage or safety issue.. it can be tackled or compromised by 3rd party at any of the nodes in between. IT security is a big subject and there are many thing in between. Any professional trader has insight or suggestion, how to protect EA/Strategy that you develop for the MT4/MT5 account?

Hi all,

As a new trader I am trying to develop strategies in demo accounts before registering for real accounts. Is this enough though for me to be ready to enter the real markets?

Thank you!


Yes, it's more than enough if you have good performance without scalping, martingale, grid strategies!

Good luck.

From my experience, they turn out to be different afterall, I have never noticed that the volatility would hit demo to same extent as live, having opened same direction positions

Really? How come? The charts of demo and live accounts are identical, at least in my experience.

Hello,

i dont mind that charts are identical, I actually mean speed of order processing which is can hugely be impacted by volatility with lives and be usual in demos at the same time
