Trading in Simulation

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

NinjaTrader routes orders based on the account that you select in any of the order entry interfaces (SuperDOM, Chart Trader, etc.). Simulation is no different. You can select the Sim101 account from any of the NinjaTrader order entry interfaces to submit your orders in simulation. When selecting the Sim101 account in any of the NinjaTrader order entry interfaces, the background color will change to the user defined simulation mode color which is a dark slate gray by default.


NOTE: Trading in simulation should be done only when you have data within market hours streaming. Simulation outside of market hours can result in fill prices which are seemingly far off the last traded price based on the erratic bid/ask prices commonly seen during these hours.
