demo accounts are worth trying before getting into real one. you can compare the brokers by opening accounts with different brokers and you can then choose with whom you should ope your real account.

It's a good way to try working with different brokers but demo won't guarantee success anyway. You will never know if a company is market maker with demo trading, it's a pitty

Good to here that you have started with learning and practicing demo, also it been helpful. Not every one can do it easily because forex is risky and people just want to earn money and they are never ready to learn any new things.
Anyway, people have different goals... maybe some want to gamble :) and some want to earn money

There is no big difference between the demo account and the live account. Just that the demo account is more suited for practice and you can there perfect your trading system on the demo account with play money.

Demo has its own importance in trading life but taking it as seriously work is needed. Most newbie do not work as seriously as they are going to work on live. So that is one negative point.

As a novice trader, you should focus on only demo, if you don’t want to lose your money! Forex trading business is so popular, because of availability of demo trading service! So, use this opportunity! In addition, start your live trading when you are very sure about your own trading skill in your demo! Don’t count your demo trading sessions, focus on your learning process only, best of luck!

I traded for 3 and a half months on demo but still lost sometimes after I shifted to live. But I can't say how long should one sit on demo
maybe I should take more time, but it's late to think about it now

I think using demo and a live account is an iterative process. I started on demo then went live but had losses, so I went back to demo. This repeated a few times but have been on live account for a while now

demo trading allows you to sharpen your trading skills, test your strategies and learns from the virtual losses. It is an important tool but it lacks the emotional quotient which comes with the real money. This is where live account marks its importance.

mmm ... I cant agree that demo involves any emotions. it's virtual money... no worries :)
I had some problems with switching to a live acc as emotions were quite strong comparing to demo

I don't even understand the idea of the question... a demo account is for getting acquanted with the terminal if you're a newbie or for trying out the trading strategy. A real account is for real trading.

The question may seem ambiguous really , but I personally use demo while live trading to test new strategies, it always needed

Demo accounts will be useful for newbies, also it's best to start with a cent account, you can see many brokers have them now. After you get better at it and more sure of yourself, you can switch to a real with more solid sums.

I don't see how to open a real account without a demo. You should first learn how to trade on demo and then begin on a real account.

As for me, demo accounts are necessary for beginners. And for experienced traders only real account.

Wow. How long are you in Forex?
In fact, why not to do it. Testing without losing money - perfect :)
Three monthes I have been learning how to trade but than i found RAMM-accounts and it seems more interesting for me.
