Thank you first of all for doing this and helping us new traders learn to paper trade the market! I was looking to try the spreadsheet for trading the Emini futures, however the calculations for the tick amount per ES movement does not match to the calculations on the spreadsheet (since the value per tick is $12.50). any chance you can help me in this area if I trade the ES or the dow mini?

thinkorswim paper trading sucks. I can never get out of my position when i place limit orders even if they are way cheaper than the asking price. It is so frustrating and ridiculous.

Thanks a ton for this!!!

Hello Clay, do you not get charged $9.99 per sell trade as they are being traded individually on different days rather than all 500 at once? $9.99×4 or $6.95×4? Thanks

Hey Clay, I'm currently saving up some cash to take the plunge into CTU. Seeing how much you stress the importance of paper trading in the podcasts I came over to this video to check it out to see if I could give it a go. I have absolutely no experience in the market but I want to be as productive as possible while I'm only able to save up. Is it worth trying to paper trade with no knowledge or experience? Would I just be picking up bad habits due to a lack of any strategy?

I want to learn trading but I don't know from where to begin.
I familiarised myself with basic terms situated with trading and want to learn more.

Hey Clay, I've been trading for free on robinhood for about 6 months now and Ive been stuck at 1k the whole time. Now I have watched a lot of your videos on here and they helped me a lot. I took all your charts and wrote em down as well cause i thought they pretty cool as well. And now, you finally talked me into paper trading! Thanks bro!

Stanley Laden says:

Martin Ferruggiaro says:

Hey Clay, you are just counting 9,99 comission only for buying, and for selling you don't pay comission?

arupian666 says:

Maybe it's just me, but I paper traded for about 2 days, got bored, and jumped in… my first Iron Condor was "in the wild" and was a BUZZ ! Hahahaha, it WAS a 2 standard deviation trade, mind you… mid 90% probability of success… about a week before expiration… made me about $30 after commissions… But it was REAL trading, with REAL money and REAL fear, lol !

Julian Mata says:
