The purpose of this IQP was to scientifically develop a profitable automated stock trading system. Through developing the system the group members implemented the tools and techniques commonly used to scientifically develop a profitable trading system. Initially the members researched the fundamental concepts and theories about trading and how to develop trading systems. Next, the members implemented these theories by scientifically developing a system that an average citizen can use to improve their trading. Lastly the team performed back testing and analysis on the system using historical data to determine how well the system would have previously performed. The back testing proved the system to be extremely profitable.
