This Interactive Qualifying Project is a stock market simulation focusing on the three common stock trading strategies: swing trading, reversal, and position trading. Our group worked on a ten- week stock market simulation by using these trading strategies. These strategies were tested on ten companies for the simulation, and each strategy was tested separately. These ten companies were selected by some historical or experimental reasons to help us getting more experience of those three strategies. The goal of this research was to getting some good or bad experience of stock market trading for future use. As we expected, these valuable trading experience helped us deeply analyze the trend of the stock market and will make good investments in the future.
