This project is a four-week stock simulation research. The goal of the project is for the participant to gain stock trading experience through a real-time simulation so that she can make calculated, well-informed stock investment decisions in the future. This project reviewed the current stock market, analyzed two existing trading techniques, and ran stock simulations on six targeted companies with an investment of $500,000 for each trading method. The results from the simulations indicate that the Technical Trading method is more profitable than the Swing Trading method. This project provided the participant with valuable trading experiences that will be beneficial to future investments.
