1. INTRODUCTION Investment happens when you allocate some money as your resources to invest in something with an expectation that you will profit in the future. In finance, usually you will invest in assets, either physical assets or even monetary assets so that you can gain or maximize your return comparing to the initial amount that you have invested. The activity and the process of investment is very important in the real world as it could be beneficial for you during the hard times. Therefore, I am very thankful to have gotten the opportunity to learn this subject, Investment and Portfolio Analysis (FIN552) to get the overview and the knowledge of investment. For this subject, we were assigned to trade commodities in a simulation at a platform called Bursa Marketplace. This trading simulation is a trading game for us students to buy and sell existing securities listed in the market of Bursa Malaysia. Each of the student that enroll in this subject are responsible to trade with the capital of RM100,000 given by our lecturer, Miss Fauziah Binti Mohamad Yunus with the objective of maximizing profit and getting higher returns from the amount of capital that is being given. The knowledge of Investment and Portfolio Analysis is very important when playing this game as most of the knowledge is applicable in this game By doing this assignment, I am able to learn on how to trade securities in the real trading world based on the experiences that I have gained throughout the time when playing this game. Besides that, I will be able to know the current news about Malaysia’s trading market from time to time as I will be alert with any company announcement and news being published during the trading game. Besides that, I also will be able to enhance my skill on analyzing charts based on the technical analysis knowledge that I have gained such as how to trade referring to the indicators like Relative Strength Index, Moving Average, Bollinger Bands and more. Lastly, it can be said that this subject and this simulation have given me a lot of advantages as I will know the trading patterns when investing. On the other hand, I will be able to know the potential gains or losses of a particular stock based on the research findings of the Fundamental Analysis, analyzing the charts using the Technical Analysis knowledge and also receive many valuable information from the expert and professional investors. 1
