Forex Simulator’s Offline Mode – Practice Trading When Market Is Closed

Download Free Forex Simulator

Using Forex Simulator’s Offline mode is an ideal way to to practice trading when the markets are closed. The software uses historical market data stored locally on your computer, so you don’t even need an Internet connection. You can practice anywhere – and any time you like, not only when the trading is open!

Our Forex Simulator guarantees 100% market modelling quality, as it only uses tick-by-tick data.  You can download high quality tick by tick market data for free e.g. from They provide the data as monthly files in CSV format, which the simulator natively supports.

The Simulator provides an inbuilt sample market data file covering 2 full days of trading. Navigate to the Data tab, and follow the instructions there, and you can give offline simulation a try in just seconds after software installation.

However, there is an important difference between practicing on live market and with the Forex Simulator offline.

Namely, in our Simulator you can vary the data feed speed and also put data feed on hold. Which is obviously impossible to do if you use a regular demo account.

What are the benefits of these data speed manipulations? Why would we need it?

First of all, pausing the data feed lets you manage your time. You can take breaks whenever you need it, but not when the market  situation allows it.

Secondly, by speeding up the data feed you can save your time. When the markets are moving nowhere, you don’t have to sit and wait for action. At higher speed, you can skip the moments of “dead market” and return to normal speed afterwards.

Finally, you can also slow down the data feed. This might be useful practicing news trading – when the market moves extremely fast.
