During the five-week simulation, the News Based trading method was applied. Recent news from the selected companies were obtained, analyzed and put into the simulation of each week. The results showed a good performance as the applied method gained 2.38% of a total percent change. Success of the project and the experience learned about the critical details of stock market will increase the chance of helping people to become successful investors in the future.
