Any free SIM futures trading platforms out there?

I'm a futures trader, and I'm training others to do the same. I want to give them the free SIM platforms if there are any.

It doesn't matter if it is on the clock perfect timing with the real market. It does need to be real data though.

As many of these sites and platform outlets as can be listed here to choose from would be greatly appreciated.

NinjaTrader can be used for free including SIM, but if you need real data that comes from paid market data fees.

The best approach is to determine who you want to select as your broker, and then look to see if they have a demo account. This will usually give you access to their trading platform and market data for two weeks. It is usually recommended to go to CQG for a demo account because their fills are more accurate.

Well for these people it would be something for a year. I think after I get a few people "in with a grin," they'll stand as testament of others to put down funds on platform and data without being such skeptics about it being some get rich quick scheme from a stranger scam bag on the internet like there are a ton of in every industry since the beginning of empires.

So CQG is a demo for a few weeks, but at what cost thereafter?

How about Ninja Trader? Free platform for however long, but what's the cost of the data?

If you are classed as a non-professional and if we are talking about CME exchanges only, the cost of the data is 15 USD per month per user. However this presuppose opening an account fist I believe.


But if you say you are training other people, then chances are you would not be classed as a non-professional (i.e. you would be classed as a professional), in which case the fees go up quite substantially. I am not sure by how much exactly but others can advise on that.

thanks @trendisyourfriend

Interesting - there's no bundle package, unlike in the 'non-professional' case, so each different CME exchange is charged separately.

Pretty cool is it not?

One thing i wonder though. If someone passes a combine and gets funded, i understand he needs to pay the pro fees but what about if he is kicked out of the program because he busted his account. If the pour soul takes a combine again to qualify for a new funded account, does he need to pay the pro fees during his combine after having been funded one time and considered a pro trader?
