Note: Trading on a demo account is a great way to familiarize yourself with a forex broker's trading platform, to master the mechanics of order placement and to test your forex trading system - without risking any money. However, if you wish to prepare yourself psychologically for the trading, you should open a real trading account - preferably a Mini (it offers more flexible risk control than a Standard account). Trading with virtual money on a demo account should be limited in time, so that you do not start real trading with unrealistic assumptions about your ability to handle your emotions (as this skill does not get fully tested when you trade on a demo). However, if you are planning to autotrade your strategy, you shouldn't worry about the emotional aspect of the forex trading; the demo account is ideal for testing the trading setup before you start automated trading with the real money.
