How to painlessly go from demo to live account in 4 simple steps

Many traders show great results on a demo account but fail when they start live trading. We made a full analysis of this problem and selected 4 crucial steps, which will help you switch to live account as comfortable as possible.

1) Trade Like it's real

When you know you are not trading with your real money, emotions are much less involved, and you can make all the possible mistakes. It is dangerous because everything you do on a demo account becomes your habit. When you open up a demo account, forget that it is a “demo” account.

Treat it as a live account with your real money in it. Enter the trade with a strategy, plan, risk management and etc. Your demo account's size and leverage should be exactly the same as your live account would be. Do not open a $50,000 demo account if you plan for a $1000 live account.
