I think that you will have to set down with yourself and ask yourself what you’re afraid. Losing money? It’s different trading on demo account as on real account, because of our emotions. Demo account is good for testing yourself for your strategy, money management, analysis and indicators which you are using for trading. You can’t use them all. And you can’t use all analysis which is known and you read about it. You have to set up your best analysis system which works for you and you can practice it on demo account. Then when you are ready with that, you switch to real account and then you have to deal with yourself. It’s not easy to lose your money, for which you were working for. When you go to real, you have to stick up with system which was working fine for you on demo account.
I was there too, you know. I am now in Forex for around 6 year and read a lot of books. At the beginning I have lost two real accounts with my savings. This was not so encouraging. I had a system, knowledge, but my emotions let me down. Then I saw that “my system” freezes when I was going to the market and I was making so stupid entries which were not in my system. Everything was upside down. Reason for that: I was afraid of losing my own money. We underestimate our own emotions, which operates behind (or in) us. I am perfectionist in my nature, so losing … that was not in my repertoire. When I accepted that I can lose too and I will lose some amount, I picked up. Now I just follow my rules and am making decent profit. I know when I enter, where I go out and how much lose I am accepting with specific trade. If you know at the beginning how much lose will you have if you have miscalculated and you accept that, I think you will be just fine.
