Demo account is a dummy account that enables new traders to perform all trading activities without risking real money. It will be right to say, Demo account is the live simulation. With demo account trader trade with fake money while with live account trade with real money.
The demo is useful, but this is not reflected overall trading result in live account, there are a term of difference between two, main point is about psychology trading, then about server demo and real is different, good trading in the demo account, not sure will good also in real account

There are a lot of opinions on this and everyone is right in his own way, but Ill say that you still should not ignore the demo account.

Psychological difference is the most case between demo and real account, because since trading in demo account only use virtual money, no effect on emotion, since trading in a real account will involved emotion and this influence during trading, fear, greedy and so on

The difference between them is that Demo helps beginners to get familiar with the aspects of trading carefree(without risk). Its a tool that helps one to practice trading or to test a new trading strategy without any risk to actual money. As for a the real or live account there are risk factors and also if you don't have an strategy or plan on what your doing its going to be just loss.

the biggest mistake that people are making - they think that they would be able to trade FEARLESS with the same amount of money on live as they did on demo.
there is a phycological pressure.
and sometimes it's really hard to overcome it.

Demo account usually starts with huge capital, this is main difference in the demo and real account which usually start with smaller capital, if on demo use 5000$ its big capital, but since in real account use less than 200$ is very different, so often good trading performance in the demo but fail in real trading.

A trader who trades on a real account will likely try to close the trade in profit or at breakeven. ... There are many traders who manage to make a profit while demo trading, but start losing money once they switch to a live account. No Real Consequences Demo accounts provide a risk-free trading

There are different psychological factor during trades on a demo account since trade in demo account as a trader will never felt scared to losing money, its free of risk, but since in real account trading, as a trader will facing many sorts of emotion, greedy, scary to lose, anxiety, etc.

Yes and causes a kind of reckless attitude towards possible outcomes, i.e. making luck the basis of trades instead of cold calculation.

I agree, I've seen people - including myself - fall into that trap. It's a big mistake.

Demo account is mostly for the purpose of beginners to show how the live trade works and to build up strategies.

Demo is a great tool for training, the main thing is to take your time and develop such a responsibility for yourself, as if you are working with real money because otherwise, you can become a gambler, and it will be harder for you in the real market.
