This IQP project is an eight-week stock market simulation research. The goal of the study is to gain experience of trading stocks through a real-time simulation using MarketWatch. Two simulations were performed: one focusing on using traditional technical analysis to trade, and the other using the fundamental analysis as a complement for advanced technical analysis. Both simulations result in a loss (5.6034% and 3.5255% respectively), mainly because of inadequate risk management and unsuccessful loss control. The experience will be very useful for the operators’ future investment in real life.
