No, but you can use the MultiCharts Data Playback feature to simulate price action during the weekend.

That depends on what you mean with 'test'. With Playback Mode you can simulate how prices move around the open and 'replay' those bars, but you can't practice accurate order fills at the broker. But then again, a simulated data feed from the broker that you mentioned in your original post can't do that either.

Why not try it yourself? You know best what you're hoping to test, and whether this Playback Mode is suitable for your needs.
