Hi all,
I am interested in purchasing Wealth Lab, but have some questions.
1. I live in the US. Do I have to have an account with Fidelity?
2. Will the software allow me to backtest a trend following strategy using Parabolic SAR to signal entry/exit/reversal points?
3. What is the cost of the software?
4. Does the software actually allow for live trading, like Scottrade Elite, for example?
5. If yes to number 4, what are per trade commission costs?
Thanks.

It's not possible for US residents to purchase WL Developer. They should contact Fidelity instead to get Wealth-Lab Pro free of charge with a qualified account.

As already answered in e-mail and a support ticket, yes.

Free with a qualified account.
