Just curious:For how long did you paper-trade or simulation-trade?

For how long did you paper-trade or simulation-trade BEFORE your first live trade?

I probably sim-traded for about just 2 months when i started a few years ago.

In the beginning of my career, almost a year. Back then sim accounts weren't as easy to get, so it was literally 'paper' trading. I would test my set-ups at night after working my day job.

Still use my IB sim account to test new set-ups.
