MetaQuotes has a MetaQuotes-Demo server you can open a demo account that allows you to execute trade requests. 

File -> Open Account ... Follow the prompts, selecting/filling-in information asked of you as you go.

They're simulated executions in a demo account, for obvious reasons. No guarantees you'll get executions that are necessarily close to realitic that you'd see from your broker in a live account.  I haven't really looked to make real comparisons, personally it's 'close enough'. But my strategies are not dependent near-perfect executions, and pretty forgiving in that respect, so your mileage may vary.  I would guess the real-time and historical data provided also may/may not jive with reality either (again haven't made any real comparisons, so just an assumption on my part).
