What is the Sim101 account?

The Sim101 account is a default account that represents your own simulated account through which you place simulated trades. The Sim101 account behaves identical to a live account in that it has a cash balance, profit and loss and other financial parameters. For example, when placing orders to the simulator, the Sim101 account is checked to ensure that you are not exceeding your buying power.


How to customize the Sim101 account

You can set initial Sim101 account values, reset simulator values, clear order history, and set simulation engine parameters.  To access these settings open the Control Center window select the Tools menu and then select the menu name Options, once in the Options window select the Simulator Tab.
