The purpose of this project is to apply the scientific method to trading the market and trading systems. This is relevant to the widespread and growing trading community worldwide because, many people hold the common misconception that it is simple to be profitable trading and investing. Mass media and the internet have led the public to believe that the lack of skill can be replaced with a set of arbitrary or predefined rules to be successful in the market. In this project, a system of systems was used to evaluate how a defined set of parameters and rules helps to effectively trade stocks and forex. A set of statistical analysis was applied to each individual system and the whole to deduce whether it has value and efficiency to the project goal and future of trading community.
