The internet along with online brokers have opened up investment trading to anyone who is interested in pursuing it as a viable means of income. In order to do so education on the subject has become invaluable as many covet the methodology of developing a winning strategy. The goal of the project was to develop such a process through the scientific method by testing in a simulated trading environment. By testing and optimizing ideas, viable trading strategies were produced that function in various markets including foreign exchange, crude oil futures, and technology stocks. These strategies along with a basic understanding of background information serve as a starting point to inform an individual to the possibilities of investment trading.
