The Tradovate platform comes with Market Replay built-in, including full market depth and trading capabilities. Market Replay is included in the 2-week free trial as well as our Active and Advanced membership plans.
To launch Market Replay in Tradovate, click on the Application Settings icon in the top right corner of the platform:
Click the Add-On Tools tab and click Activate More Add-Ons:
If you have subscribed to the Tradovate Active or Advanced membership plans, simply click Activate. If you have an Essential membership and would like to access Market Replay, upgrade your membership to the Active or Advanced to gain access to the Market Replay activation:
You will then see a confirmation message:
Once agreed and confirmed, you can open Market Replay by clicking the account dropdown menu and select the Replay account:
Enter the start date and time you would like the replay to begin, how fast you would like the market to be played back, the initial balance of the equity to trade with during the session, and whether you would like it replayed in your current layout or select another layout from your saved list and click Start:
You will now see that you have a new “replay” account number and the balance has been updated:
You will also see that the chart and quotes/DOM data is showing action from the selected start date and time:
You can see a new area in the header of the platform that displays the time and the speed at which it is replaying:
You can click the dropdown on this area to pause, adjust the speed, view the date and time currently being displayed or close and exit the replay:
It is important to note that market replay on many other platforms is limited to the best bid and offer, Tradovate shows the complete market depth and includes trading capabilities. This is very valuable to check your trading methodology on actual historic market movements and also feeds some of our Add-Ons like OFA and Bookmap.
