I could use some assistance getting started.  I'd like to auto-trade the EUR/USD against simulated data.  I'd like to use either the Aroon Oscillator or Simple Moving Average to start with.  Here is a video of how I experience the platform thus far http://screencast.com/t/6AL0apaxI

You need to setup a Demo or Live account to get any data from your Broker.

It looks like I have that according to this http://screencast.com/t/mvtEGyndHzO.  Where's the hook?

Test away to your hearts desire . . .  some Brokers Demo accounts expire after a set time (perhaps a month) others don't . . .  if your Demo account expires you can open a fresh one and carry on, there is no catch.  the "hook" is that the Broker wants you to open a Live account at some time and deposit real funds to trade with,  but there is nothing forcing you to do that and yo can pick whichever Broker you want.
