Thread: Difference between demo and real

    Default Difference between demo and real

    I really do tried most of these EA on the fourm . most of them working on the demo but you start trading on live account, all of them doesn't work as they work on demo.

    regards

    Hi Mamounforex,

    Theorically, there is no reason why it should work in demo and not in real.

    In practice, demo and real accounts can have different spreads (when the spread is increased on a real account at certain hours, it is not necessarily increased in demo), you can have also more "quotes issues", "trade context is busy" messages, "too many requests" messages, ... a slippage quickly exceeded, a lower rapidity of transaction, etc... that's why it would be better to test only the codes on real micro accounts instead of demo. But not everybody has a such capacity.
