What are Paper Trades and How They Work

Tickeron offers paper Trades to keep track of open and closed positions that users want to add to their portfolios. This is a great way to see how your portfolio would fare in real life without putting money on the line. Open positions can be reallocated during off-market hours and would be locked in for the day after the morning bell. The pending orders tab contains positions that require the user’s attention. 

When making a paper trade, keep in mind that every trade is a $10,000 position and can only be added or deleted during market hours. You can buy a position if you believe it is going to continue to rise, or sell if you are counting on it to go down. Paper trades support both stocks and ETFs. At the bottom of the page, you can find your open, closed, and pending trades, and can access the Tickeron newsfeed to see updates on the tickers you have bought and sold. Charts are available for both open trades, as well as open and closed trades combined, showing equity. 



In addition to the live newsfeed, see stock summaries for detailed performance, the screener to find other stocks according to your parameters, and community predictions to find out what other Tickeron users have to say about the stocks you are considering. 

Trades can be analyzed using Tickeron’s comprehensive statistics.

Simulated results (annualized returns, % wins/loss, and other statistics) are achieved by the retroactive application of a backtested model itself designed with the benefit of hindsight. The backtesting of performance differs from the actual account performance because the investment strategy may be adjusted at any time, for any reason and can continue to be changed until desired or better performance results are achieved. Alternative modeling techniques or assumptions might produce significantly different results and prove to be more appropriate. Past hypothetical backtest results are neither an indicator nor a guarantee of future returns. Actual results will vary from the analysis. Past performance should not be taken as an indication or guarantee of future performance, and no representation or warranty, expressed or implied is made regarding future performance.  Disclaimers and Limitations
