There is no difference between a real account and a demo account except for the fact that you are using play money in the demo account and real money in the real account. This allows you try if you have the skill level required to earn money without actually having to risk any real money. It can be a good idea to trade for a couple of months with a demo account before you decide whether or not you want to trade using real money. If you are able to consistently make money using your demo account then you should also be able to consistently make money using a real account.
The return rate is usually the same regardless of whether you play in a demo account or a real account. It can however still be a good idea to verify that the rate is the same. Some less serious brokers can offer a higher pay out rate in the demo account than the real account. The reason for this it to make it seem easier to make money than it really is.
Trying out new strategies
A demo account can be a very useful tool that can be used to become an ever better trader.
