    Your report should describe the strategies used from a theoretical standpoint and discuss how you applied them.
    You will be evaluated on the strategies used, execution of the trades, your portfolio performance and supportive evidence.
    Your report should include a discussion on:
  • Strategies and indicators used
  • Market Analysis
  • Industry and stock analysis
  • Stock selection and weights
  • Conclusion: Discuss the performance of your portfolio and what worked well and what did not work and you could improve during your next trading.
    Your report should also include the following appendices:

  1. Screenshots of the indicators used in your technical analysis as part of your final report.
