I'm very new to forex, been trading on a demo account from various brokers for 2 weeks. I'm very consistently making profit, so I'd like to start doing real trades. I've been practicing mostly with an Alpari demo account, and intend to register a real account there once ready. My trades go over a period of 10-15 minutes usually. The problem I'm having here is that it just doesn't make sense that you make such easy profit with so little experience, there has to be something I'm overlooking. The question I'd like to ask is: what is going to be difference between demo account and real trading ? The only thing I'm aware of is higher spreads during news (I don't think this reflects on demo accounts with Alpari). Any tips are welcome.
