Practice makes Perfect

Once you have developed your investing or trading strategy and your trading discipline you are ready to practice investing or trading.  Often called paper trading this gives you an opportunity to practice what you have learned.  We highly recommend you practice and test out your strategies before committing your hard earned capital.

To facilitate your practice below are three trading simulation sites that are easy to use.  Give them a try. 

These two are free:  Virtual Stock Exchange - HOME and Investopedia Simulator

This one charges a small, one time fee:  Stock-Trak :: Portfolio Simulations

Another time to use these practice sites is when you are tempted to make a trade that is not following your discipline, yet just "have" to make a trade.  This will keep you from making a mistake and losing precious capital.
