Abstract

The project was conducted by a two-member group to better their understanding of the stock market and gain real world trading experience. After research of the stock market and trading strategies was conducted, two common strategies were chosen to focus the simulation on. Then, six companies in the oil industry were selected to do a real time simulation of four weeks. Using two very different trading techniques gave the group valuable perspective on the stock market as a whole.
