Thanks about the pool.
I completely agree with you!
I completely agree too.. the risks are the same when the signal is demo or real
Perhaps in demo accounts their strategy has a requirement for more capital than they have ? or just don't want to risk high money in forex ...
Indeed, in my opinion, market uncertainty is greater than all these factors.
Anyway, if someone creates a competitor system that the provider has to pay the damages of the subscriber I will believe in the difference between provide using Demo or Real!
But, in this case, I believe that providers will not sell their trading signals over there ;-)
I agree to the demo account that providers ask for a fee for his work !
If the provider ask for the credit/month he will work for you and take care your money while he can earn monthly salary !
I like too much your sentence: "ask for a fee for his work".
And the logic is that: the more accounts you have to manage, the more work you have.
Behind a profitable trading signal (Demo or Real) there is lots of work, that you can ask or not for a fee, proportional to this, as any other job.
Maybe, if you just ask for a fee using Real Accounts, probably emotions of the provider will avoid we reach higher results (as we can in Demo Accounts).
So, state of the art, in my view, is near Demo than Real accounts, and is fair to ask for a fee for this work.
In my opinion, probably if some real account provider is really confident about his trading signal, he will sell all his assets and invest in this signal in private!
But who has the holy grail here and is really confident about the future of any pair?
To be honest, I'm far away from that.
