    Trading with demo account is great as you don't have to risk your money in it but the problem is that you are unaware about the real situation. For only when you dive in the deep waters can you learn to swim. In this situation you are not experiencing trading with real money. And the frustrations of the brokers is also not known. So demo account is good but ultimately real is what counts!

    It is very useful for the trader to be able to improve his trading skills using demo account without exposing his funds to the risk of financial loss. For sure, it doesn`t give you the feelings like real trading, so you probably wouldn`t understand your trading problems in the sphere of psychology, but in general it is a grea tool to make your trading better.
    Some of the traders also use demo account to test new strategies, but to my mind such apporach has many disadvantages.First of all, it is extremely time-consuming. It could take several weeks or even months to make enough trades to get the reliable results. Another point is that testing results would be impacted subtantially by your mistakes: you can miss a trade or execute the trade that doesn`t fit the strategy rules. That is why if you want to check the performance of your strategy, it would be better to backtest it using specail software like Forex Tester, that allows you to test strategies without any actions of the trader that gives accurate testing results. Backtesting software executes dozens of trades based on the strategy rules using historical data provided by the brokers. As the result, you will get a detailed report on the performance of the strategy in long term perspective.

    Anyway, demo account still is a necessary tool that could help you in many situations. For example, you can use it to understand whether it is comfortable for you to trade using your strategy and how it fits your psychological preferences.

    The key is to understand how it really works and who is right to work with. I was losing funds to a broker and by the time i realised it, i had already lost $52000 which was over half of my savings. I met a friendly trader and she directed me to the recovery agent Mr Bart Kasch. He helped me recover all my money, every penny. Referred him to friends and colleagues already, you can contact him if you need help at [email protected]

    A demo account is an account from which you can gain forex knowledge without any fear. If you use a demo account then there’s a money-losing chance, no fear you can easily build up your knowledge. The problem is you can’t earn money by using a demo account. You can only build up your forex knowledge. I used a demo account for building up my knowledge. Now I trade with Eurotrader. They are really very supportive and helpful.

    Demo trading is important if you know how to use it. No matter you are new or old traders. If you are old traders you must know with a single strategy you can not make profit all the time. We need to change according to the market condition. To test your strategy demo account is the best place. You can't lose money by testing on live account. For demo trading a good broker is also important. A broker whose demo price is well synced with live market like Eurotrader broker.

    By millions of traders scalping is a trading type favored. In Forex market today mostly, traders are now using this scalping trading type because it is easy and profitable. But the broker is the main thing to get proper support of using scalping. Tpglobalfx is my trading broker and I have chosen them to get proper facilities to use my scalping trading. I have lowest zero spread from 0.01 pips, instant market execution support etc.
