    I've been a daytrader for a couple of years and slowly moving towards a swing strategy. Im searching for a simulated account that could record real time transactions in the futures market (treasuries, commodities, indices..). The idea is to build a trackrecord reflecting my strategies as well as all VAR calculations.

    Would anyone know where I could find something reliable?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Good Trading
  2. Use your futures broker simulator.

    Don't bother with using simulators that have nothing to do with your actual futures broker.

    Analogy: Don't practice and test a volkswagen then when it comes to race time you'll be driving a porsche.

    This is just one of many reasons why many traders have difficulty (poor performance) when going from a simulator to real money trading.
