Through the use of tools and resources available from the internet as well as text and media references, a team of six people conducted an eleven-week stock-market simulation to investigate the validity and success of different trading strategies in the stock market. In the project group members selected companies to follow and trade based on how the company projected earnings. This required extensive research into the companies' history and recent movements. The group found that all of the methods tested were adequate in producing returns but one method that followed Livermore's Principals of investing was far superior to all of the others. The experience gained throughout this project will allow the group to become more competent investors in the future.
