I agree with this. Slippage is almost always absent in all demo accounts and the spread is never exactly the same in demo accounts. That is why you must try a strategy several times on demo before being sure it can work in a real account. To play safe, you can try mini account for the real experience at lower riskI have never seen a broker where the demo and real accounts have exactly the same slippage and spreads. There are always discrepancies, it is a reason why you can sometimes see a strategy work on a demo account, but then fail on alive account.
Slippage on demo accounts does not usually occur, in my experience, but as discussed above, demos should reflect the live market of the live account for that broker, and I actually tested this with Hugo's Way and never had issues with either demo or live. One of my brokers of choice right now.Hi all,
Is it safe to assume that all brokers who have a demo account, the demo account matches the live account's slippage and spreads? When asking some of them directly, they said yes ... but want to get the take from the fellow community here
