Abstract

The three-member group researched the history of the stock market and different trading strategies for two weeks. A ten-week stock market simulation was conducted, with each member using a different trading technique. The three methods used in the simulation were trend following, swing trading, and news based trading. After the simulation the three strategies were compared and analyzed to determine the most profitable technique. Valuable trading experiences were obtained that will enable the team members to become competent investors in the future.
