I've signed up for a demo account trading CFds. At the moment I'm going to just practice and focus on two markets, gold and silver. I follow these markets closely and know what makes it move.
Practicing since monday I have managed to profit 5k mucking around. Highly leveraged, but nothing that I'm not prepared to lose. What I was planning to do is buy in a highly leveraged position after a month of practicing some strategies and ride out the silver/golds yearly uptrend in the 4th quarter.
However I hear that the demo accounts are different to the live account and making money is not as easy as the demo account. Just want to hear from some cmc traders if this is true or not.
