If you used a demo or fantasy forex account prior to trading on the real markets, keep the demo forex account even after you start trading. It is vital that you continue to learn and practice, and you can practice new strategies on the demo account before doing them for real, allowing you to catch problems or mistakes.
To make money on the foreign exchange market it is absolutely essential to know when to stop losses. It is a common advice to stop on tight losses, but this kind of move can make you lose money fast. It is best to have a wide margin for error to work with, and this should be set by the trader himself.
A trader's overall strategy on the forex market should fit his or her lifestyle - that is, how much time he or she trades. Traders who watch the market just a few hours a day gravitate naturally towards conservative strategies. Traders who spend more time following activity closely can employ more aggressive, small-margin tactics.
