Who offers stock trading demo accounts that DON'T require your SSN?

  1. I have a demo account with Open E Cry that is awesome, but it's only futures.

    I signed up for Think or Swim's demo account only to find that data is delayed by 20 min. Useless.

    I heard Options Express had a good demo trading platform but they're requiring my SSN. I understand why that might be required to open a real account but for a practice account? No.

    Are there any real time stock trading simulators that don't require an SSN?
  2. i have acct. with TOS i run 4 monitors on TOS paper money, just for charts and i never noticed that data is delayed even by one second, in fact when TOS have problems paper money runs as smooth as it can .
  3. I just got it now. Maybe it has something to do with the market being closed right now. But that shouldn't matter, should it?

    I'll try again tomorrow I guess.

  4. thats weird, my session status says that i'm connected, i guess thats because you don't have with them real acct.
  5. Ok it looks like my ToS demo is actually displaying data in realtime (comparing with QuoteTracker/Scottrade on my other monitor).

    Weird. I'll just ignore that part that says delayed 20 min then.
