Abstract

For our project, our goal was to learn as much as we could about stock market trading, with an emphasis on fundamental and technical analysis both through reading online materials and engaging in our own trading simulation using the TradeStation platform. In order to identify emerging trends that we could trade on, we planned to engage in market watching by watching CNBC daily and reading relevant online articles. Since no real money was at stake, our strategy was to use a trial-and-error approach to find out what works and what doesn't when attempting to trade in the stock market.
