About This Site
This website was born out of TSim+, so some quick history on how TSim+ came about is in order. When I started my trading career I wanted to be able to do simulated trading in real time with real live prices; I wanted to be able to try different strategies without placing real trades, before I played them with cash. At that time there just wasn't any software that did quite what I wanted, and so I wrote my own and thus TSim was born.
Having got used to trading with TSim, I decided I would rather like to keep using the same trading interface with easy automatic Stops and so on, to enter real-money trades with too, so live trading was added and TSim became TSim+. In the meantime, I had given copies to some trading friends who I thought might find it useful. They did, and so it figured that other traders might also find it useful, and hence this website was created as a place to distribute TSim to anyone who wanted a copy. There are now many thousands of TSim+ users around the world, trading just about every stock market and futures market out there.
Why Is The Trading Software Free?
Several reasons. The whole point of writing TSim+ was to help me trade better, not to try and sell a piece of software (I had enough of that in my former career!). I want to concentrate on my trading, and getting involved in sales etc just doesn't interest me. There's also the fact that the more people there are using TSim+, the more feedback I get, and that means the more good ideas that can be incorporated into the program, which makes it better for everyone who uses it.
