A demo account can be used for other purposes also. If you think that recently you
are facing greater challenges in trading and that your money will be at stake, then
you can turn to a demo account trying to cope up with the process. Once you create
a demo account, don’t be inactive for a longer period. That will lead you to your
account termination or deletion.
