Demo is the initial step, then if you wanna learn it more better, you could do small investments and learn through it and later could invest more money with the increment of confidence level.

A FX practice account is a trading account to test strategies under real market conditions. It is funded with virtual funds and allows you to practise trading. It can be used to get experience before we use real account. Demo account will help new trader to start trading.

I feel the difference with the demo account real account is located from the psychological side, and capital used, try to manage capital trading in demo account is definitely no sense of worry, fear, etc so that it is capable of logical thinking of trading behavior

In demo account we can trade as much as we can with virtual money to enhance our trading skills and our main objective should be the learning it will further help us in real account to achieve high margin profits. Emotions in real account should be controlled.

Huge difference is that with Demo you don't let your emotions take control of your actions. Hardly the situation is the same with the Live environment.

Demo is to gain knowledge, though experience could be gain only through the Real Trading. Thus EA advises to so trading with small capital, after practicing Demo.

The difference isn't just psychological. With some brokers there is slippage and requotes on the live account and none on the demo account. One should really watch out for that when they pick a broker and a platform.

Yes, I don't think that someone will face huge slippages or orders cancelling on demo. But on live, such things happen not rarely

Yeah, and that is what makes Demo a good way to learn about the Forex Trading, only if you spent more time in it, most of the traders thinks that they don't need to more of Demo, but trust me they need to have.

Well, first of all have a good strategy, and be able to control your emotions even in stressful situations. Never trade on your emotional impulses, they cloud your judgment and lead you to make bad decisions.

True, the part about the large initial capital can be very misleading. That is why it's so important to trade on a demo account in the exact same manner as you would on a live one.

The difference is very simple, a DEMO account is dedicated mainly to those beginners who are interested in entering the market or especially to learn how to operate on a special program for trading, But all the operations performed are like a kind of simulation and there is no risk. The REAL account is for when you go into trading, all your transactions will be real just like the risk. So to say the DEMO account is for practice and the REAL is for doing real operations.

I think demo and real account trading server is different, since in demo account with good speed latency but maybe in real also influence by volume traffic between client and dealer, if the trading server is busy, hence also influence to performance if use EA, but ideally ECN broker is better than bucket shop

There should be no difference unless the demo uses a different feed, which is very unlikely. Live trade execution slippage and liquidity issues will mean bigger differences as you increase the lot sizing, especially if you trade around news and/or Asian markets.
