Demo account buseful to backtesting strategy and shystem trading, but real account will more useful to develop better psychology trading, success in demo might making trader being confidence but not guarantee will success later in real account.

I think it's definitely psychology. I mean, I am sure that demo accounts and real accounts sometimes have different speed of order execution and that can also affect your trading, but the added pressure of trading with real money is the biggest factor in my opinion.
Yeah pressure is the worst. Its like passing an exam... Ugh!

Some opinion giving suggestion to trade on demo account at least six month, because many trader they can't maintain account more than six month and most trader get fail less than six month

It has never occurred to me to compare the stress of trading with real money to passing an exam, but come to think about it, it's a very accurate comparison. As a student I did learn, however, to deal with that stress, and I got used to the exams. It shold be the same for trading, I think. The more you trade, the better you feel.

Yeah you feel quite chilled by the time you graduate :) So maybe its the same fore trading just trade until you feel nothing can beat you

There is no fixed period for demo trading. It depends on your progress. I did demo for 6 months.

By the time I graduated I felt almost sleepy during exams. However, when it comes to Forex trading, while it's good to have confidence, I also think that one should never become too confident. That too can be a mistake. It's good to always be wary, but not afraid.
