Abstract

The purpose of this Interactive Qualifying Project is to scientifically develop a trading system that increases profitability and return on equity when compared to index funds. This project used three different trading systems that focused on trading foreign currencies as well as equities. The first strategy is based on value investing and focuses on equities where the “true value” of a stock is found by using fundamental analysis. The next system used is based on the CANSLIM method of stock screening that uses specific parameters to find stocks that have potential for high growth. The third system focused on currencies and used technical analysis as a basis for creating entry and exit conditions.
