Over the course of four weeks, a stock market simulation was conducted using various techniques and patterns to determine which methods were most effective while investing in stocks. Information was taken from books as well as the internet for research, and all technical data was taken from the internet. This project examines manners of trading, both short term and long term, and juxtaposing each of their strengths and weaknesses. The ability to read technical data as well as formulate and organize data was learned. These tools, along with many of the others learned in this project, can be applied to investing in stocks on the real market as well.
