if i got you correctly,u want 2 know what is a demo account. This is a trading platform that simulates a live system but uses live data. The funds you trade with are virtual, meaning that you don't deposit anything, loose anything or gain. Its simply for training yourself or testing a trading system. Once you are ready, you can then go live; where you deposit real money(most cases your life savings), and WHICH U R READY TO LOOSE, and then trade.
You take risks, make decisions, plan and execute.
I advice you to stick first with the demo, until u r sure of your trading system/plan. Also take time(i recommend 6 months) to educate yourself.
