CHAPTER 6 - LESSON 4
It’s highly recommended that you practice trading using a demo account. A demo account is a simulated trading account that allows you to trade using virtual funds.
Demo trading allows you to get familiar with the trading platform and to practice trading strategies with zero risk. It can also help you to identify any weaknesses in your trading strategy and to refine your approach to trading.
Below are some tips for successful demo trading:
• Take your demo trading seriously and treat it like real trading. This will help you to develop good trading habits and to avoid developing bad habits that could negatively impact your trading performance.
• Use your demo account to experiment with different trading strategies and to identify which strategies work best for you.
• Keep track of your trading results, including your profits and losses, and use this information to refine your trading strategy.
• Backtesting involves using historical market data to test your trading strategy. Backtesting can help you to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your strategy and to refine your approach to trading.
Demo trading allows you to practice trading using virtual funds and to get familiar with the trading platform, while backtesting can help you to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your trading strategy. By using these tools, you can build the skills and confidence needed to be a successful forex trader.
