    Hi
    Everybody knows-winning with DEMO account didn't mean winning with real money. My question - is somebody makes profit at REAL after loosing DEMO?
    I lost about 50% at my DEMO account - it take's me one year.
    Do I have a chance - I open real account today. :)

    Go for it, after all in Demo you are not losing real money.

    Buying a car is more risky. So nobody does money without winnig at Demo? No such examples?

    Real or Demol

    please my brother,

    Continue with the Demo till u are certain of picking pips consistently then you can try you real account.

    Or you will risk lossing your money

    Jeffboy - what do you mean -""picking pips consistently"" ?
    Three months? Three years? When it would be consistently?

    Yo dude, i think you better think twice about opening a live account. The reason being playing with a demo account is supposed to be much easier than live account. And when you said you lost 50% of your demo account in a year, my opinion is you're gonna do a lot worse on the live account.
    Trust me. I am talking based on my experience of 2 mths of using demo acct and 4 mths of using live account. Its much more difficult.
    However, if u still insist, good luck then! :)

    Prices were crazy on November 1st. Only having a 3% drawdown in your first week is fine. It means you must be doing reasonable money management.
