Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The objective of this project was to learn how to invest in the stock market. A four-week stock market simulation was performed using technical and swing trading strategies and TDAmeritrade's trading platform. A $100,000 initial investment was made for each method, with the intention to make profit through trading using the two different trading strategies. The technical trading strategy traded with Microsoft and Netflix and netted a profit of $4521.80. The swing trading strategy traded with Apple and Disney. It netted a profit of $33,693.45 mostly trading through the news. While the results showed that Swing Trading had better return, the difference could be caused by the differences of companies selected. Simulations using more companies should be performed for further investigations.
