I remember very well my account manager from ironfx calling me and telling me that trading with a demo can have a reverse effect on me.

    Early success in forex is worse than early failure

    I totally agree with you. Succeeding at the beginning without really understanding how it happened is a vary dangerous game. It gives you the ability to feel like you are in control and that you have the upper hand and will always succeed. However this is not the case and it is a lesson everyone...

    Does your broker give you support in local language?

    I trade with ironfx and I visited their office down in London a couple of times and I am impressed. I definitely saw and spoke with people from at least 20 different nationalities.

    Portfolio Management

    This portfolio management product was offered to me also. I look at their figures and yes they seem to be quite good. One thing that I liked is that you don't have those excessive minimum deposits that many money managers normally request. You can select one of the programs with as low as $500...

    Can demo accounts give us all we need?

    Demo accounts are a good way to get a feel of what trading forex is like but I definitely don't believe it is enough.

    Why demo performance is often better than live performance?

When you trade on the demo account you aren't risking anything so you remove yourself from the "what if" state of mind. In the demo you don't really care if you lose. If you lose it isn't your money so you...
