Setting up Simulated Account in EdgeProX

Simulated Account in EdgeProX

In EdgeProX we have a Simulated account where you can test trading ideas, learn different instruments and how the platform work without putting live capital on the line. 

The first step in setting up the simulated account is to go to the Preferences tab. This can be done by clicking on the cog wheel at the top of your charts. 

      

After you click into this, you will want to navigate over to the "Simulated Account" Tab.  

      

You will then be able to click the enable button to turn on the simulated account. In this tab you can also adjust the balance, currency, whether the orders fill immediately or if commissions are included. There is a feature at the top that allows you to disable trading on all other accounts except your simulated account. This is good to set so that you do not accidently place an order on your live account. 

       

The final step to trading within your simulated account is changing from the live account to the Simulated account within your DOM. There is an area at the bottom of the DOM that allows you to click into different accounts. You want to be sure that this says "Simulated" see image below for clarity.
