A stock market trading simulation was conducted using a combination of several trading techniques. Using references and ideas from the Internet, various trading methods researched and four methods were selected to use in our simulation. The methods were Swing Trading, Defensive Trading, Momentum Trading, and Penny Stock Trading. Active trading was conducted using pseudo-capital over a two-month trading periods to determine the advantages and disadvantages for each method using graphical analysis. All members of the team gained practical knowledge about [the] stock market which will be useful in future real life investments.
