Difference between demo and real trading
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 higherspreadsduring news (I don't think this reflects on demo accounts with Alpari).

MACD ColorHist Alert Indicator for MT4
MACD or called Moving Average Convergence Divergence is a Trend Following momentum indicator and MACD ColorHist Alert Indicator is when looked at a lot more eye friendly with alerts. Using MACD is one of the main Indicators for Forex trading. It is used by all Forex traders from basic up to advanced traders. It is calculated by subtracting X-days EMA from the Y-days EMA. Then the signal line is plotted on the top of the Indicator to function as a trigger for buy / sell orders. This MACD ColorHist Alert Indicator uses alert to Alert you of your preferred Alert choices.
Developed by Thomas Aspray in 1986, the MACD-Histogram measures the distance between MACD and its signal line (the 9-day EMA of MACD). Like MACD, the MACD-Histogram is also an oscillator that fluctuates above and below the zero line. Aspray developed the MACD-Histogram to anticipate signal line crossovers in MACD. Because MACD uses moving averages and moving averages lag price, signal line crossovers can come late and affect the reward-to-risk ratio of a trade. Bullish or bearish divergences in the MACD-Histogram can alert chartists to an imminent signal line crossover in MACD.
MACD - Forex Walkthrough
The MACD is another popular tool many traders use. The calculation behind the MACD is fairly simple. Essentially, it calculates the difference between a currency's 26-day and 12-day exponential moving averages (EMA). The 12-day EMA is the faster one, while the 26-day is a slower moving average. The calculation of both EMAs uses the closing prices of whatever period is measured. On the MACD chart, a nine-day EMA of MACD itself is plotted as well, and it acts as a signal for buy and sell decisions. The MACD generates a bullish signal when it moves above its own nine-day EMA, and it sends a sell sign when it moves below its nine-day EMA.
