It's clear it's because of psychological factors. On the demo account there is no psychological pressure and we can trade casually even though we are experiencing a loss, in contrast to a real account where psychology controls us here so it will be much different from trading results on demo and real accounts even though the demo account has managed to profit consistently.

Try to hold your demo account until 3 months. If you're not Margin Call try to deposit on real account. You just deposit same with the demo account.

you better join any contest in many brokers bro, join a demo contest and test your skill there,and about demo win and live loss is a psychology factor, you want to get easy money by use full margin, but in demoyou will be just like "nah, its only demo" haha

It must because your live account is less funded than the demo account. With plenty of capital on your account you can freely open market to buy or sell and just wait until enough profit reached.

Because trading on a demo account does not involve psychology as happens in a real account. this is the reason why we can lose on a real account even though we can get consistent profits

things like this are often experienced, especially those who are newbee.
Why?
Because of the influence of psychology. Trading on a demo account feels easier to make a profit, but after they tried the account, it turned out to be the MC. In fact using real money weighs more on our psychology. For that, just a suggestion from me, if you want to practice, you should use a cent account. Don't just practice on a demo account

Well the emotion between live and demo account is different, in demo account you can open with big lit and if you lose it wont affect you. And in live ? The opposite

Its the pshycology that make it different, do some research and trade careful with live account

this is a common problem because basically if we use a demo account, our psychology tends to be maintained, this is different if we use a real account our emotion will play there

I suggest that before entering into a real account with a large capital try practicing phisikology in a micro or mini account, I think micro accounts can train little by little,

Demo win, Live loss
This is very good topic, why? Because I also often experience things like this hihihi :( .. 
The reason is that when we trade using demo account, we will not think about how much loss we will experience. It's different when we trade using a live account, before buying and selling we must have thought about estimated profit and losses. And the thing I experience most is when we buy prices down, and sell prices goes up. That's where, emotions, mentally, or psychologist is unstable, as a result instead of profit but even loss.
