Paper Trading replicates actual price movements. The price moves the same way as on a real exchange and in real-time. Paper Trading price movements are duplicated from real trading prices on the Binance.com Spot market!

BTC has good news and is rocketing to the moon?

ETH has terrible news and is bleeding hard?

It will be the same for Paper Trading.

Paper Trading still requires funds to buy or sell, but you get them the easy way: press a button, and you'll have $10000 deposited to your Paper Trading account!

Sadly, it's impossible to transfer profits made with the Paper Trading account to your real exchange account, but you can reset your losses as many times as you want to.

You can master technical analysis with Paper Trading, and your skills will become stronger when trading your real account.

3Commas features work the same way for both Paper and real trading, but the Paper Trading account is isolated from your real accounts, so if you play with Smart Trade on the paper trading account, you won't notice any change in your account balances after switching back to live trading. 

...*But there's no trading volume simulation

Paper trading doesn't simulate liquidity, so unlike real trading, there is no order book simulation and no partial fills. High liquidity pairs like BTC/USDT work well, even without the liquidity simulation. The difference is noticeable only on low liquidity pairs where there are fewer traders and thinner order books.

Differences between Paper Trading and real trading:

  • Orders fill when the price hits their level regardless of size.  0.1 BTC will have no difference from 10 BTC, but it feels different time on real trading. 

  • Market orders fill like there is always someone to buy & sell at the best possible price. On real trading, a market order might fill at the much worse price if there is no liquidity on the exchange order book.  

  • All trailing features in 3Commas rely on market orders, which means on Paper Trading, they will always have the best possible result.
