Hi friends
I've been running my automated trading on my tradestation SIM account.
At the end of each day I open the performance report and go through the Trades List tab.
My question is - how accurate is running aautomted trading on SIM accounts and can I count on its performance reports?
* I'm of course trying to get as close to reality as possible, before putting money on it...

Thanks for any info! Appreciate it

Not knowing what you trade or how much you trade ect can't say.

IF you are trading something like the Futures Indexes, e.g. ES with plenty of liquidity, meaning almost NO slippage and you are using limit orders or are accounting for the bid/ask spread it should be fairly accurate.

Having said that that's absolutely NOT to say thats that what whould happen live.

Most likely it won't work at all. You will have slippage. Hiccups. Orders cross. Orders doubling up or just bleed money till you give up.

Not to mention commissions and fees.

Or it might work... who knows.

I would not believe SIM results at all.

You might not even be able to trust the backtest strategy engine Perf Report, unless you have it set up right.

Example: if you are missing an important setting on limit fills, your results could be garbage.


Just too little info to say for sure, but I certainly would not trust it.

Try running live with micro eminis if you can.
