Stock Market Simulation Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In this Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP), a ten-week trading simulation was performed using two different trading styles: fundamental trading and technical trading. Rather than trading stocks, the simulation consisted of buying calls and puts, which are otherwise known as option contracts. With an initial amount of $250,000, each team member used one trading strategy exclusively to purchase options. By the end of the trading simulation, the technical trading style had lost 6.95% of the starting funds while the fundamental trading style made a modest 0.44% profit. As a result of the trading simulation, the team members were able to further expand their understanding and experience with the stock market to build a better foundation for potential future investments.
