Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project introduces the Foreign Exchange market with an emphasis on fundamental and technical parameters, in order to get started as a Forex trader. The purpose of this project is to systematically create a profitable trading strategy in the Forex market. The group used $100,000 each in a simulated account to trade different currency pairs on the TradeStation platform. During this process, two students in the group selected manual trading systems and the other two chose to trade automatically. After testing each system and collecting data, the group compared the results and gathered a profitable trading system.
