How realistic is the papertrader? It did not work well at all this week. I had one trade that shorted when I clearly entered buy. I had trades that did not show up in the execution window. The trade that sold instead of buy, is still on the platform, after I tried numerous attempts to liquidate today both limit and market orders. Today when I opened the platform this stock still shows in the portfolio but is not on the pending tab. Today I placed 6 more stock trades in which 3 of them went up but no fill on any of them after bouncing around back and forth through my limit price. and still could not get out of my bogus short trade after chasing it with limit orders and then a market order. Is this typical with a simulator platform? or am I to expect this in real time? What kind of a realtime fill should I expect to get on a stock with 100K volumn? and when you attatch a stop, it doesn.t fill unless you are filled on you limit buy first right? I never had any problem trading the futures realtime, but a lot of the stocks I scan for are lower volumn. 100k usually, and are much slower. Even though there is no one on the other side of the trade here, any input?
