I haven’t read all the comments, so apologies if I am repeating.
I believe to be successful with live trading, you need to be successful with demo trading, I would say for at least 4-6 months. Only then would you have some idea that your plan/strategy works. If you are able to demo trade for more like 6-12 months, that would give you decent exposure to a number of difference market situations and show the robustness of your plan/strategy. Have you been successful in demo trading?
I should clarify that when demo trading, you need to trade EXACTLY how you will when live trading e.g. same opening balance, same lot size, same number of open trades, same stop loss parameters etc, following the plan/strategy you successfully developed in demo trading.
I personally spent a few months back testing my strategy, going through about 10 years of daily charts working out and writing down the result of every trade I would have taken if trading at that time. I then spent about 5 months demo trading. Then I went live and I have been successful since (2 years and 3 months ago)!
This is just my opinion and what worked for me. Good luck with your trading journey
