Looking for that as well. If there aren't any existing one's, it'd be great to have at least one of each (Future, Stock, Stock Option) simulated for testing purposes.

For example, @ESTEST# (and/or @NQTEST#) could repeat the market data for @ES# from the last trading day with timestamps offset for current time.

I concur, this would be a good idea.

We don't have this currently, as is obvious by the other people chiming in, but I think it is certainly a valid request. But, to be sure I am requesting the right thing, is something akin to a once per second update on a symbol of each security type enough for this to be useful, or would it need to be an actual market replay in order to be useful?

A market replay would be best. At minimum, one or more futures (maybe the ES as mentioned, as they run almost 24 hours, and could rotate on 24 hours). Bonus would be one or more equities, maybe a few OPRA options to go along with the chosen equities.

IB runs what appears to be pseudo random values on their edemo account, but at least there is a time varying feed to run basic operational tests.

Good information,
Please keep the ideas coming, I will make sure product management is aware of this thread so all your ideas are received and hopefully we can try to consider it as we move forward.
