Hi, I'm looking for a trading tool that works both as a simulator and as a real-live tool. I hope to learn the mechanics of trading and then move on to trying out various strategies both in simulator and in real life. Considerations: - A tool that can be used for entire trading career - I don't have an IB account. - The tool should be representitive of what the majority of tools act and feel like. (not good -> cyberX2 had a horrible interface) - Would be willing to pay for a real-time service - Probably will start with E-Minis (as suggested in previous threads) - Simulator works after closing of markets One more question... Is QuoteTracker a solid all-in-one solution? Does it have simulator capabilities? Currently I've been using SpeedTrader Pro although my 5 day trial is running out. Thanks for any suggestions or experiences.
