Drew McCormack today released Trade Strategist 0.1a, a trading simulation program, which allows users to combine the technical indicators found on online investing sites into "trading strategies". It then takes the strategies and performs "virtual" trading on historical data downloaded from the web, allowing users to visualize "how much she would have made or lost adopting the strategy. She can then either discard the strategy, or improve upon it. The best strategies can be swapped with other Trade Strategist users."
