Traders must focus on trading as if they are going to trade live money. Simulator trading should be an exact match for how traders will trade with live money. Traders must practice exactly as if they are trading live money. If one is to start on Micro ES contracts, then practice with Micro ES contracts. Trade the # of contracts that will be traded when a trader switches to live money. A trader’s emotions are “trained” to expect a particular result. If too much money is traded on the simulator, emotions are strained when trading live. This creates conflicting emotions with unintended negative consequences. Private or small group sessions are available to review trades a trader has taken and get feedback.
