Don’t Demo Trade for too Long

So, how long should you demo trade?

One month?

Four months?

One year?

The truth is that it depends…

If you’re a day trader, then you may want to consider demo trading for one month

If you’re a swing trader, however, then you may want to consider demo trading for three months

The concept is that the higher the frequency of your trades, the less time you should do demo trading; if the frequency of your trades is lower then it’s the opposite.

Remember…

Your goal in demo trading is not just to test whether your strategy works.

But to see whether or not your trading plan or trading routine is for you so that you can make tweaks along the way.
