Practice will make perfect, although we use demo account, because sometime if we treat forex only as part time business might we faced worst condition get margin call account, and if not capital in real account we can forward test in demo account again.
Just pull yourself back to demo account and try to evaluate your trading performance in order to avoid the same mistake in the future trading...

Demo account is free place to learn and practice in real market condition, sometime we need to back again in demo if likely we don't have capital in real account because get margin call account, back to demo is not mean we already give up, but this for learning process again until we ready to start in real account.

I'm new and on that stage I'll stick to a demo account until I gain enough confidence. Then I plan to open a real account with a small amount. If successful, I'll put some more money in it, however, I will be very cautious, as I know the value of money. A friend of mine told me to use my own money (not lent by a friend or a bank loan) which I don't mind losing. According to him that will help me remain cool enough and prevent me from making stupid mistakes. That's exactly what I plan to do.

I would say that we have to learn doing our trading with our own money and any amount of money that we are going to put in the Forex trading markets is always at a risk for a loss :)

The fact remains that Forex trading will remain risky as long as we will be doing our trading. And this is because we cannot say cent percent what is going to happen in the Forex markets all the time :)

Ofcourse a Demo Account is useful if you are a Newbie in this Forex world. This will help you get in touch with the live trading conditions and thus, your learning potential will increase. Dive into the Live trading world once you understand the markets pretty well.
So for me Demo environment is where you can nurture yourself. :D

Yes, demo account is actually needed to back-test your strategies. But what I think is certain brokers give different spreads on live and demo, which might affect our trading strategy.

Demo Account is the best way to learn trading but you could never earn with it unless you start trading with real account. Thus it is advisable to learn with demo account and then earn with live account.

The new trader is better to start the exercise is on demo trading. for demo trading provides a lot of knowledge about how we use a platform with a well along with trading tools.
indeed some people suggest to practice trading on a real account, because it does mental exercises.
but there is no harm in a new trader to learn from the experience of others. at least it was able to minimize the risk of loss at the beginning of a career.

One reason why as many beginner get fail beause they don't using demo account seriously to learning, because desired to making real money in trading, but after get failure hence they realize if demo account is important as early preperation.
