    we behave different with demo account and real account-loss reason

    i am here from 3years and know many traders who have used demo account for practice but they not learned something, the reason is:

    1- on demo account they open an order and leave it for some time, may be not check after 2 days, if they got profit they think they have good strategy but on real account they open an order and check account in every mintue and some time close in loss in just some hours, can't make strong decision

    2- on demo account they trade freely and make decision, but on real account they become emotional and lose money in this way

    3- on demo account after losing money not take tension but on real account after losing they try to recover and place big lot order and lose more money in tension

    4- on demo account trade not become greedy but on real he just try to make more and more in short time.

    there are many things more which are bad, we should avoid them

    In real trading account trader's can face a lot of challenges and you have already written about them in your thread, you are right that its important to understand that what we are doing in the demo trading account, and how we have to perform in real trading account, as you have said that in demo we don't see our positions for a long time, but in real trader's want to sit in front of their computer due to the cause of emotion.

    Well, they were never serious with the demo account and it is likely to happen to any one who is not serious with the learning platform. The demo account is one of the place where to learn from, therefore the newbie making use of it should first treat the demo account as the real account because that is really what that matters and that will give to him or her the learning they require.

    Yes off course and I agree with you that this happen with us and almost this happen with all traders because only one reason is our emotions So in demo account trading there are not our emotion and in real account trading , there are too much emotions involve , that are also cause of our failure .

    It is all about choice if we should really take the demo account seriously then we would be able to behave the same way in all trading platform. Just that on the demo account we tend to be more free thus having huge amount of virtual amount of money running but then on the real account we have little amount of money and then we trade using higher lots.

    [lang=id]it is caused by the commitment and responsibility, traders will not get full of them at demo account and then become the habit and bring them to real account, and also, there are some mistakes made at demo account such as set virtual money too big, so they can hold the position for bigger floating minus and touch their target, of course, they feel good at demo account[/lang]

    Of course mate anyboy can feel good in demo trading account, but its not the same like real trading account, trader's should understand about it seriously, demo trading account is the place where they will not loose an real money but they should never ignore their mistakes in demo, they should but handled and controlled well in demo, otherwise tradders will get problem in real account.

    Yes it is not much possible to feel happy and also to feel frustrated when trading with a demo account. When trading with real money these feelings are automatic as we feel happy on earning profits and feel sad when we lose our money. Also there are feelings like fear and anxiety when our real money is at stake in real trading. Getting stop outs and big losses in a demo account does not affect our psychology in any way.

    In my opinion sir, what I have noticed is that; the demo trading is the virtual trading account, and most traders (if not all) have the virtual feelings about it as well, it is not real. This is why it will never be the same thing like the real trading account, traders might try to make it same, but the difference would always be clear.

    The reason on loss in real trading is that we did not take the demo trading sincerely and all the people thinks that it is the waste of time and failed.

    I would like to suggest all the newbies that they should take the demo trading seriously in order to get the fruitful result in real trading.
