This is why I say that trading on a demo account is only beneficial up to a point. Beyond that point, a trader impedes their development. You shouldn’t spend more than a few months on a demo, especially when micro lot trading is available with a couple of hundred dollars.
The real learning starts when you go live. As what most people ‘learn’ in theory and in practice is usually not applied live. There is a gap between theory and live trading where most peoples money falls in to.
You cant learn this business for free. It cost money in one form or another as you are discovering here. Since your tuition fees are being paid to the market.
Firstly, this is how I would re-frame the situation. These trades and the decisions you made to get to this point are tuition fees. Expensive lessons, maybe, but if you learn anything from them you should not pay to repeat the same lessons again.
I would refrain from adding more money to your account at this point. Only top up your account again once your funds get too low to trade with. Reduce your volume if you have to until such a point where you deem yourself to be consistently profitable.
Your education can be relatively cheap or expensive. You decide.
There is an adage that might be relevant here : When in doubt, get out.
However, no one can tell you what to do. You have to consider whether the criteria used to enter the trades are still valid. If not, you should ruthlessly cut your losses to prevent further damage.
There is always the possibility of a recovery though. The point is, no one really knows. You have decide whether you want to take on more risk, eliminate the risk, reduce risk or give your positions a chance to recover.
The market has an uncanny ability to know where you pain point is. When you cant take it anymore, and decide to cut your losses, she will reverse course while sticking her fingers up at you.
As it stands, you have to perform at near 150% ROI to get back to roughly where you were.
