Playback Simulated Trading

Doug Hayman


I played with NinjaTrader a number of years ago (I think it was V6), and they had a really cool feature that allowed you to simulate trading against historical intraday data, by "rewinding" to a certain point in time, and allowing you to simulate trading from that point forward, by using data coming in from that point (using stored historical data in real-time).  This allowed the trader to practice simulated trading in real-time against stored historical data, without knowing "what was coming next" data-wise.

This would obviously require all the bid/ask deltas with timestamps to be stored (not sure if these are currently preserved in MT data files) and would be a healthy development exercise for sure. 

Certainly not a must-have, but would be a very sexy offering to add to your trading system platform.
