Yes @100Plus, there are simulators and many find them an invaluable tool. There are several free ones for share trading I have posted links to in the past (search for threads with Sim or Simulator) but I've not used those myself, but for normal cfd/sb trading there seems to be only pay for sims available. I have 2 and the great benefit of a simulator is time saving. You can test strategies, indicators and practice execution for a week or a month worth of trading in a single afternoon. Seeing what doesn't work and discarding it quickly is a massive bonus. 

It is true that system hopping is vice new traders acquire to their detriment but sticking to a system that doesn't work is just as bad. If I'm trialing something new I would give it at least 20 trades before assessing, this takes time, especially if you are only placing 1 or 2 trades a week.

A google search will reveal the 2 most popular and affordable sims available, they use the mt4 platform or a mt4 copy and both have a single payment for a life time key with free data updates. The good news is that the cheaper one is the better, costs about $99 usd if memory serves and is called Soft4fx. It's actually an EA so it will run on the IG mt4 and so works with all the markets covered by IG's mt4 platform (fx and indices plus some commods, cryptos and metals). I think the available data runs a couple of weeks behind time and goes all the way back to about 2001.

    • The cryptocurrency industry has grown rapidly in recent years, with the total market capitalization now exceeding $500 billion. However, the industry still faces a number of challenges, including security and on-chain efficiency which is one of the biggest challenges in the cryptocurrency industry, because in recent years, there have been a number of high-profile hacks of cryptocurrency exchanges & wallets, and traders are faced with high cost of on-chain transactions. All of which summed up to make cryptocurrency trading less efficient. In order to address these issues, exchanges are seen taking up the responsibility of solving the problems and I've seen Bitget, a leading cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, recently partnering with Cobo, a leading provider of digital asset custody and security solutions. This partnership is aimed at enhancing the security and efficiency of cryptocurrency trading, which will allow users to seamlessly execute cross-exchange transactions, enabling users to capitalise on arbitrage opportunities without having to deposit their funds directly on exchanges. This could significantly reduce on-chain transaction gas costs and make crypto investments more efficient and cost-effective. Developments like this, if it could be capitalised on would take away bad players from the industry, make crypto a safe place and increase its adoption, but how wide would it cover for the whole users in the crypto space and even Bitcoin?

    • I think bitget will be the obvious option cos binance that use to be a good option isn't finding it rosy atm with regulatory bodies and speculations around the health of the exchange aren't friendly to feel safe with them atm
