How do the fills (market orders) on the PFG simulator compare to PFG live account?
Come to the chat room or PM marketsurfer in the AM. He uses PFG.
I've been fooling around with the pfg simulator. There are some problems.
It will fill market orders a couple of points better or worse than the actual market.
It will sometimes fail to execute stops or limits that are traded
through if price does not stay beyond the stop / limit price for a while.
It's better than nothing, but you have to put a lot of asterisks on the trades you generate (or don't generate) with it.
It would be nice if IB had a training mode on its realtime platform for paying customers.

A couple of points or a couple of ticks?
