... on the simulator. I'm doing playbacks on Ensign's simulator. Incase you are not familiar with it, it allows you to download all ticks for a certain day, and then play the whole back at your chosen speed whenever you want. SimBroker allows you to mark your buys and sells and does account for commissions. I picked days pretty much in sequence, from months like November, December. I do playbacks on 1min ES chart at 6x speed and $5 IB style commissions. I would suppose 6x actual speed would simulate some real-time slippage. It's like I can't stop winning. If I made stupid mistakes during a particular day then it just turns out that I'm not gonna make alotta money on that day and that I will make something like $20 maybe but not lose. Here's my "results" so far: (day totals) +10 +292 -115 +25 +142 +115 +15 +65 +220. OK, I'm waiting to hear why I'm an idiot/this won't last/I wont be able to make a dime with real $/etc.
