This IQP project is an eight-week stock simulation research. The goal of this project is to gain stock trading knowledge through real-time trading experience for the participants, so that one can make relatively wise and precise stock investment choice in the future. This project used three trading strategies: Swing trading strategy, News trading strategy and Day trading strategy on the targeted companies with a total investment of $500,000 for each trading strategy. At the end of the 8-week simulation, the return rate of swing trading was 1.11%, return rate of news trading was 1.72%, and return rate of day trading was 4.43%. The result indicates that day trading was the most profitable strategy among three trading methods.
