Here is how you can set up your TOS and I go over a bunch of little options I had to figure out on my own. Hopefully this helps you get a faster start in the program than I had!

This desktop app can be used for paper trading or real trading, and it runs on mac and windows.

Sorry I wasn’t recording the upper portion of the screen with the extra tabs… you’ll see what I mean.

This platform is bland and generally late 80's early 90's "style"…most use the home page to trade instead. Disgraceful.

hi i've been trying out this paper trading thinkor swim account. It behaves different than say oec and a few others mainly a short act like a long and a long acts like a short, also when it shows that i have made say 100 bucks or so and i sell / get out of the position i end up at a loss ( a pretty big one at that ) I feel like i am doing something drastically wrong here ( I haven't watched the video yet you tube videos are blocked on my work network)

Troy McDonald says:

Am I wrong, or is "PaperMoney" only available through InsvestTools now? (I don't see it on the TDAmeritrade site).

This video was more helpful than all the other tutorials on YouTube for this platform. Excellent work.
