This project is a four-week stock simulation research. The goal of the project is for the two team members to learn stock trading strategies through a real-time simulation so that they can make wise and proper decisions on stock investment in the future. This project reviewed the current stock market, analysed two popular trading techniques and ran stock simulations on ten selected companies with an investment of $500,000 for each trading method. The results indicated that the Day Trading method is more profitable than the Swing & News Trading method in short-term investment (one month). This project provided the team members with valuable trading experiences that will be beneficial to future investments.
