Forex paper trading?

I am looking for an alternative to forex DOT com since their demo account only lasts for 30 days for some reason. Do they seriously think it only take a month to go from pleb to professional trader? I need to be able to use order templates and make trades directly from the DOM as I am only interested in Forex markets for scalping.

Possibly a daft question.. but here goes;

Hi all,
Currently starting out in Forex (paper trading to learn etc before going live) & the other day I saw a thread about the pips going up by 100.
Now, I know that for the major pairs (bar Yen) we look at the 4th digit from the decimal point, but if it goes up by 100, does this mean that a price starting at 1.200 & now at 1.300 has gone up by 100? (assuming 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 and going up in blocks of 10 like 1.210, 1.220, 1.230 etc) or have I got this wrong?

Closed forex position won't disappear on paper trading account?

Hi, I closed a forex position a while ago on my paper trading account, but it won't disappear from my monitor tab. I know it usually takes a market day for a closed position to disappear, but it's been about a week and it hasn't gone away. I've also reset my paper trading account a couple times to try and get it to disappear, but that hasn't worked either. Here's a picture: https://imgur.com/ukhijpv
I know it's a little thing, but I would like to fix it if possible!

How similiar is paper trading to the real deal for forex?

Using td ameritrades thinkorswim and have been playing around with the paper money side. Not comfortable enough yet to move into real money, was just trying to see how close it is to the real thing.
From what I can tell it is the same thing, just ran 20 minutes behind the actual market. Really just wondering if there is any major differences i should be aware of before putting real money in.
Second question, are the transactions instant like they are on paper? I know there is a lag with stocks.
Thanks

Phatey with this beautifully simple USD/CHF short: http://i.imgur.com/HDvmumb.png
Congratulations on winning the first /forex paper trading competition! I really like this trade because it was just so obvious, clean and textbook, and in the face of all the noise out there about how USD/CHF was on its way to the moon.
There were lots of other good contenders. In second place for sure was Wyat2000's USD/CAD short. The only reason I decided that this didn't win was because phatey's trade had a much better risk/reward ratio - other than that they were both equally good, and equally well executed.
I didn't include phatey's EUUSD long, which would have been even better, but I don't believe it was triggered?
Two interesting things:
I'll leave correspondence open for bitchin' and whinin' until the end of the day, so if you have any complaints or suggestions we can pretend that this is a democracy for a bit. Otherwise the prize will be awarded this evening!
Someone suggested we make this a thing, so this is where you post your hottest trade ideas for the week. Smoke 'em if you got 'em, and let's try liven this place up a little.
*** To make it a little interesting, I will award the week's "best trade" with a month of reddit gold! ***
RULES:
  1. Charts are preferable, but if you don't post a chart then please be detailed about entry level, stops and limits, means of execution, and any other conditions. Vague buy or sell calls won't be considered for the competition - you must include some reasoning behind the trade.
  2. In order to be eligible to win, you MUST adhere to Rule #1 and you MUST post an update on when and how you managed and closed your trade (including partial exits, trailing your stop, adding on, etc.) - I'm hoping these threads will be a good way for newbies to learn, and for the rest of us to pick up a few tricks.
  3. The "Best Trade" will be judged by me, but I'll take anyone's thoughts into consideration. It will be based mostly on % change in price during the time the trade was open, but there may be arbitrary style points awarded. Generally it will be on how technically "good" the trade is, and hopefully this will generate some debate.
  4. Risk management and strategic execution will also factor into it, mostly to try to exclude luck to some degree - but also to encourage and promote good trading habits.
  5. You can post trades at any time from now until Friday's close, but no trades after the fact, obviously.
  6. Trades that are still open by Friday's close will be considered as closed at that point (unless anyone has a better idea of how to handle this?)
  7. EDIT: Forgot to mention that you can post as many different trades as you like, but please do them each in a separate comment to make it easier to track.
I'll post mine as soon as TradingStation is back up tomorrow, but in the meantime, let's hear what you got!

Decrypting cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are becoming a fully mature, integral, self-contained and independent of the Forex market, and therefore an alternative to it. It seems that we are just witnessing the finalization of the transformation from paper to digital civilization.

Is forex scalable? bad risk management #1 reason why people fail? Less than a year of paper trading?

  1. When I think of investing a lot of time into getting good at something I want it to have potential to be scaled up to the moon. When getting into commerce for example, I can open stores at many different locations. I've seen a lot of people saying that traders who know what they are doing can hope for 15-20% profit a month. With that math, good trader can turn $1000 into 700k in just 3 years and later and at the end of 4th year that number would be at $6m. Of course I don't believe it is possible. I just want to know what's the potential endgame? and how many years does it take for people to reach it? I'd assume in forex volume of trades done each minute is really damn big. What stops someone from putting in 100k, 500k or $1m on a single position and seeing fairly similar results as if he put only $1k?
  2. Next question is about risk managment. When reading various posts I've seen many people acknowledging the fact that they didn't implement proper risk managment strategy when they first started which was one, if not the biggest reason why it took them longer before they saw satisfying results. Is risk management as simple as for example always S/L @ -1% and P/T @ 1.5%? If I stick to it from the beginning and always get out at 1% loss. Can it potentially drastically improve my chances of becoming good at it faster? Are people with the right mindset who don't get tilted as easily and turn off their emotions during trading, set up, for the higher success ratio?
  3. and lastly, for how long should one paper trade? Is it doable to learn enough about forex to see positive results with real cash in 6-12 months? Not that I have anything else to do during covid. I would assume copying working strategies, learning patterns and how to analize charts shouldn't take longer than that
All best

Does anyone know exactly how Interactive Brokers fills forex limit orders

If the latest bid and ask are say 100 / 105 respectively, and I put a bid in at 101, will I be at the front of the queue to be matched to the next person who makes a Sell market order? Or will I have to wait until the 105 ask drops down to match my 101 bid before it is paired off?
I've just tried IB's Forex paper trading account and it seems to be using the latter method.
I'm hoping for the former method as this means I can avoid the spread costs myself if my limit orders are filled regularly enough.
Thanks.

Do you need live data to paper trade forex?

Hey everyone. I have been going through the intro, faq and babypips course on this sub but haven’t come across this info yet.
Can you paper trade forex with delayed data ?
As a Canadian I find it difficult to find a platform that has live data paper trading that is free AND real-time. Suggestions are obviously welcome. Only place I have ever paper traded was Think or Swim. Thanks!

not sure if this is the right place but I was wondering if there is anyone I could correspond with to ask questions about forex?

I am currently doing a forex paper but I am really struggling with some of the content. As I research and learn about the topics I generally dont have anyone I could ask whether I am on the right or wrong path. (the tutor for the class writes all the homework/assignments so when I ask about anything I am stuck with, she can not tell me if I am right or wrong) So I am not really certain that I am 'getting it'.
Is there anyone who would be kind enough to endure occasional questions about foreign exchange and who i can bounce ideas with.

I have been trying to learn more about trading on Forex by using paper trading. Probably a stupid question but I put a limit order to buy at 1.32755 and it passed by and went to 1.32752 why did the buy order not go through?

I have an 89% win rate over 18 trades, with a 27% profit. How many trades should I do before going live?

So I've been doing some scalping on pairs with high spreads in cryptocurrencies previously with great success, but I finally figured I'd give forex a real shot (was into it a few years ago, but didn't go live). Last time I scalped in crypto, I had 14 out of 14 successful trades, but only about a 10% profit. I haven't heard about anyone scalping the way I do in crypto, but I find my method extremely reliable when I just find the right pair to trade. This is just to say I have some experience with trading, but I'm by no means an expert.
Now, I've been scalping the past few days with a paper trading account on TradingView. I've mostly been trading the US Currency Index, S&P 500 and some crypto pairs thus far. I'm scalping on the 1m time frame using bollinger bands and looking at trends, price action and stoch RSI for confirmation on my entries. I started out with 100k a few days ago and first doubled my account to around 200k and then did a 1,3 mill trade, but I was running like 500-1000 USD per pip, so if the market turned against me, I'd be liquidated real quick. While the trades were good, I figured I was disconnected from the risk I was taking because it isn't real money, and I wanted to try doing more conservative and realistic trades, so I reset the account yesterday.
Edit (more trades done): Since the account was reset, I've done 45 trades where I've lost on two of them. If my math serves me right, that's about an 95.5% win rate. I'm up around 77.5% currently. I did lose 1500 on one trade, but that's because I by mistake placed a sell order when I was supposed to add another buy order double down on my long position, so I'm not counting that one in (but I'm not counting the 1500 I lost as profit either). I have a very strict strategy I'm sticking to when doing these scalps. I realize 45 trades is not a huge sample size, but that is kinda why I'm asking:
How many trades should I do on the paper trading account before I should run it live with confidence?
For anyone who might be interested, here's my account history: https://imgur.com/a/zuRSWwd
Edit: here's 6 trades more: https://imgur.com/a/CmbyU6n
Edit2: some more trades: https://imgur.com/a/q9xqVyq
