I know that I want to study economics at university (more specifically econometrics and mathematical economics at LSE), and I've been told that and economics based EPQ could help my application. I've come up with a few idea's and potential titles, such as "How to get rich trading currencies and commodities" or on how Fibonacci is used in finance (and technical analysis). However, neither of these ideas really captivate my imagination and I feel that there are many better ideas out there... Any suggestions?
Also, how do you feel and economics based EPQ would affect my chances of being made an offer?

Questions beginning with 'how' may not be the best basis for an EPQ, as it would be easy to fall into the trap of just laying out the facts and not really looking for an answer through evaluation and development of thought. Aim for something that you don't know the answer to but would genuinely like to find out about. Like, for those questions you've put down above it might be better to pose them more like:
To what extent is it possible (/probable) to become wealthier in the long term through the trade of currencies and commodities?
Also, no one can really tell you what you should do it on because you need the passion for it. Read some books, look at articles, pick up The Economist, then just see what jumps out at you. LSE has loads of public lectures up on their site, so you could use those as a starting point.
