Getting Started: How to Set Up and Sign into the WT Simulator (Overview)

Before purchasing a simulator subscription or activating simulator access, you should first confirm that your hardware is sufficient for running our trading simulator. Please review this information here on system requirements.

Once you have confirmed that you have the required hardware to install the platform, confirm that your simulator access is already activated on your account (see instructions here).

After confirming that simulator access is active on your account, follow these steps to get set up and sign in for the first time:

  1. Search your email inbox and spam folders for an email titled "Your New Warrior Trading Simulator Account," sent from (If you cannot locate the email, please add the domain to your email spam whitelist or your contact list to make sure you get our emails and then send us a message.)

    That email will provide you with your unique login information and walk you through the process of signing market data agreements and downloading the simulator platform, as also listed below. 

  2. Sign the market data agreements for the trading simulator by following the process described here.

  3. After signing agreements, you should receive a link to download the platform. For more information on installation, look here.

  4. After downloading and signing into the simulator with your preset password, please follow the guide here to reset your password. If you're receiving an error message when signing into your desktop platform, you can troubleshoot common error messages here.

Keep in mind that regular trading hours of the US market are 4am-8pm ET Monday-Friday, with the exception of market holidays. While you can sign into the platform outside of these hours when the market is closed to see historic charts or change your simulator settings, you will not be able to place trades or see price action moving.

Login is disabled for the platform between 11:55 PM ET to 2:15AM ET due to routine maintenance. 

Once you've signed in successfully, be sure to learn more about the features of the platform and how to use them by viewing our other support articles!
