Market Data Considerations for the Paper Trading Account

 As a licensed distributor of exchange market data, IB is obligated to respect constraints imposed by the exchanges which serve to govern the dissemination and/or retransmission of this data. As a general rule, a given subscription can be associated with only one account or user ID, although the sharing of that user ID between different devices (e.g., stand-alone PC, smart phone) is permitted as long as the user ID does not access multiple devices simultaneously. 

Accordingly, clients seeking to simultaneously operate both live and paper trading account TWS sessions must do so on the same device in order to share a given market data subscription.  If concurrent logins on different devices are detected, the live account session will be afforded the real-time market data subscriptions and the paper trading account session delayed data, as available. 

Clients who wish to run multiple sessions on different devices may do so by opening a second user for their existing account. While this approach will result in additional fees for any subscriptions elected, one would be able to maintain a different subscription set from that of the main user and will then be capable of running simultaneous live and paper trading account sessions on different devices. Moving forward, an option will be provided whereby the same fee-based subscriptions will be offered for the paper trading account independent of those elected in the live account. 

For information on adding a second user, please refer to the following Knowledge Base article:  Adding a second user for an individual account holder

How to open a paper trading account

A paper trading account is available only after an account has been approved and funded. To create a Paper Trading account once those steps have been completed, the account holder would need to log into Account Management from the website (www.interactivebrokers.com) and then select the Manage Account, Settings and then Paper Trading menu options. The Paper Trading account will then be made available within 24 hours under normal business circumstances. It should be noted that the Paper Trading account will have a separate password and user name from that of the regular account. To use the Paper Trading account, log into TWS  in the same manner in which you would log into your regular account but using its unique user ID and password. Account holders should save and protect the Paper Trader user ID and password in the same way one would protect other confidential password information.

For additional information, please visit our website and select the Trading and then IB paper Trader menu options.

Can I open a paper trading account for practice purposes before opening a live account?

 

IB does offer a paper trading account which allows one to use the full range of IB trading facilities in a simulated environment using real market conditions.  This account, however, is made available only after the regular trading account has been approved and funded. Until that time, we recommend that you try the online demos made available to prospective customers through our website to get an overview of system functionality.   A demo of both the TraderWorkstation or WebTrader trading platforms may be found by visiting our website at www.interactivebrokers.com and selecting the Individuals page.  There you will be presented with a series of links including one titled 'Demos'.

I received an execution in my Paper Trader account that did not correspond to the market at the time, what happened?

Overview: 

This is a simulated account, trading in a simulated market.  IB programmatically simulates, to the best possible abilities, actual market conditions.  Since it isn’t a real market, prices can’t always match exactly.  IB is simulating not only the trader’s functionality and the market, but also the role of the exchange.  In a real, live account, the order would be sent to the exchange, and the exchange would be doing the execution—not IB.  The exchange has an anonymous book, and orders are matched anonymously.  With the simulated account IB is trying to simulate the role that in the real markets is played by the exchange.  While these fills may or may not be within the bounds of the live market at the time, in no way is it indicative of what would happen in the real market.  Again, IB is simulating the exchange’s role in the live market, and in that market the onus for order matching/filling is on the exchange.

Background: 

The simulated trader is for client’s to acclimate themselves to the software, test various orders and strategies, and to serve other learning functions.  There is no way to exactly replicate live markets.  They are simply too dynamic.  The IB simulator does a very good job of it, but no simulator could be perfect.
