When I started the course I was already trading both on demo and live , demo on mt4 for learning the platform and studying technical analyses, and on a live account (after technical analyses on mt4) risking as low as 0.5€ or, more often, less, just for having the feel of trading with real money and to educate my mind to think in terms of pipettes, pips, overall % and consistency instead of thinking in terms of money I could earn or lose. So, I can’t say that when I finished it I felt adequately prepared, because I was already trading, but I have to say that maybe this is one of the best free courses I’ve seen on the net, it was quite fun to study. If you can practice on demo while studying the course than this would be a good thing, this way you can apply immediately on a demo account what you learn from the course and you can reduce time and learning curve before starting trading, so the answer to your question is : maybe yes, you’ll feel adequately prepared to start trading. Of course I would suggest to stick with demo even after finishing the course till you develop an effective and consistent trading system that suits your personality, and, after that, to start with a live account taking ridicolously low risk till you develop an effective and consistent trading system that suits your personality and so on…(trading with real money is a little bit different thing)… . Obviously the course is a starting point, because you MUST ALWAYS keep on deepening ALL the aspects about trading after you finish it.
