Hey guys,

Does anyone know of any trading simulation programs? I have a friend who was in training session of the Bank of America Trading training program, and he had to go through some trading sessions.

He was playing a market maker and the computer randomly generates news to create chaos.

He was using trademetrics.

I did a little research and couldn't find much about it.

Does anyone know of any similar programs which can simulate a virtual condition and to hone one's trading skills?

Thanks.

trading simulation

Have a look at the following:

Another member (arbitrageur) found it and brought it to my attention on another post; so not taking credit for finding it! :D

It is a player to player trading game, so it does simulate the market and you can try your hand at being a market maker etc. The quality of the game depends to some extent upon the quality of the opposition. It is sometimes quiet and you have to wait a while for a game. I have found that lunchtimes in the week are the best time.

Hi Snownation,

You could try Van Tharp's trading game at www.iitm.com

It's one that I recommend to some of my clients and it teaches the importance of money management and position sizing.

Good Luck,

Damian
