Besides, due to our impatience we also go for a long trade when futures contracts at a low price and the price did not increase as we expected. In fact, it keeps decreasing and it is hard to back it up because the price dropped way too far from our targeted price and could not recover it and we closed it as our last resort. Therefore, after studying based on the chart through technical analysis and understanding the fundamental analysis of the company, then we are starting to get some confidence and be able decide which future contracts that we should or should not trade. Furthermore, as stated above we have 25 futures contracts after combining from each group member but, we choose our best top 3 contracts that we generate more significant profits during the very last moment of the trading game session. The best contracts that we have selected are FCPO Jun 2021, FCPO July 2021 and FCPO August 2021. From our perspective, we manage to develop more profit from these contracts as we successfully analyze through technical and fundamental analysis. We got several pieces of information that moderately help us in making decisions to trade those contracts that we go for and as a result we generate higher profit from it. All in all, in real contract trading, an investor requires long-term expertise to begin trading and speculating to reduce the chance of losing money on any contract. Future investments are
high-risk since the price movement is highly sensitive to changes in the economy. As a result, education is essential so that the investor can assess risk and optimize profit. 7.0 STRENGTH AND WEAKNESSES OF TRADING STRATEGIES Since this is our first experience in trading futures contracts in the Bursa Marketplace, we faced several challenges during this trading session. The challenge we are facing is when to identify which position, we should choose to trade either long or short. In order to generate profit, it is necessary to have a willingness to take a risky trading strategy as every investment has its own level of risk. Technical, fundamental and strategies are also important things to know or learn before deciding to trade in any future position as the pattern of data is unforeseeable even in a day. 7.1 STRENGTH For this trading game, we briefly stated the strengths we had in completing this trading session as well as finishing this report. We conduct a discussion among the group members through the possible application that eases our process throughout this trading game. We do a Google Meet and WhatsApp discussion, during the time we select to have the discussion, everyone is committed and gives their whole cooperation. Furthermore, we manage to get profit from the research that has been done about these contracts as well as information gained from technical analysis and fundamental analysis.
