The spring semester began; the student body managing the fund totally changed, with only three students carrying over from the previous semester. Operationally, the "trader" had the following duties to the Flyer Forex Fund: read the market data at the correct four-hour candlestick, immediately update the data within the model as the close of that candlestick, run Girth calculations to determine if a market action was needed, and execute the trade in a timely manner in the correct pre-determined lot size as necessary. The fund faced issues across the entire trader process.
