Why demo trading?

Postby DanielleDavidson » Sat Oct 10, 2015 3:18 am

Demo Forex account is essentially a virtual trading platform where you can buy and sell various currencies without risking real money. In providing this service, Forex brokers replicate live online Forex trading within a test environment where no trade actually gets sent to the market. There is a slight caveat to this. In a true ECN market environment, trades will not necessarily be executed at the requested price you see in the electronic trading platform. This is because there is always a time lag between the time you trigger your trade, and the moment it actually reaches the bank on the other side of your Forex trade. In live trading, this is referred to as slippage, which may be favorable to you or go against you. This is fully expected, and under normal market conditions, won't be noticeable. Over the long-term, and when trading with a true ECN broker, slippage is likely to be in your favor and may help you accumulate substantial savings.
So being able to use demo trading is great because you can get the experience that you need.

From my first day of trading, I am extremely dedicated to be a knowledgeable trader for predicting the real faction of this market with certainly. So, I took demo trading seriously for acquiring exact trading knowledge, although, we the traders don’t believe the importance of this trading place. I have opened my demo trading in MXTrade trading broker before 3 months ago. After passing some steps, from here, I have acquired exact fundamental knowledge which helped me very much to start a live account in a proper way. So, my trading life is very much flexible.

It is optional in my view like for me I am using 200 dollars free welcome bonus with Nova FX, so it plays the better version of demo for obvious reasons and another massive advantage is that if I get success then I can convert it to real account without any major requirements, so that makes it pretty handy while even conditions are nothing to worry over as all is pretty simple and straight forward making me feel at ease with all.

Demo trading is the foundation of live trading, it's very necessary to practise 3-4 months of demo practise and then turn into live account, I suggest mirco live trading is much better.

In my view demo account functions mainly to allow us to practice things well, but if we are lazy or don’t take advantage of this then we must not do trading given this business main principle is patience and if we don’t have that then we should be staying far away from trading. I am very much patient especially with having OctaFX broker, as they offer us lovely 8 dollars no deposit bonus, it is terrific and helps so much more.

Clearly, to improve your trading skills without any cost! But, it’s not last step of learning but just beginning session of learning. You have to handle your demo account on the right way, but it’s quite tough without any mentor for new traders. But, live trading setup of TradingBanks was my best tonic to learn Forex trading principle.

For acquiring exact trading knowledge, there is no alternative way without demo trading, even though we the traders don’t believe the importance of this trading place at all. In my trading career, I took demo account very carefully and my trading broker MXTrade provided me 1000,000 for trading at all times with lowest trading spread. After passing 3 months from here, I have gathered exact fundamental data which was very supportive to start a live account in a proper way.
