Paper Trading Resources

I can’t promise this is a comprehensive list, but it is what I’ve found so far. If there’s any that I forgot to include, please let me know in the comments section below.

I personally can vouch for paperMoney. It is a system affiliated with the thinkorswim options trading platform on TD Ameritrade. Great computer interface and ability to use the thinkorswim mobile application. Pretty much anything you can do with the “real” version of thinkorswim, you can do with the paperMoney version. This includes backtesting and integration with the mytrade thinkShare website. I’m not sure about the other brokerage-affiliated offerings, but you get a paperMoney account when you sign up for a TD Ameritrade account OR you can get a stand-alone paperMoney account without having to sign up for the brokerage account.
