The goal of this project was to create a successful trading strategy for use in the forex market and create a positive track record which could be used to launch a money management company. Several different trading strategies were considered, and were subsequently tested both through live trading and through programming automated trading robots. Additionally, other programs were created along the way, both to aid in manual trading and in data gathering and processing. With our performance history we then sought out possibilities for launching a money management company. Such strategies and examinations of the markets illuminate both the benefits and detriments of several potential trading philosophies, and provide a solid background for the beginning trader.
