You can try a free program that downloads historical stock prices and lets you simulate stock trades with these prices.

Simulating in the past (backtrading) is much different than paper trading in the present. Consider opening a brokerage account that allows you to paper trade for free, which is following your trades in real time. Both are useful but the former alone is not sufficient.
