The purpose of this project was to conduct a research simulation on the stock market in order to gain knowledge and experience in investing. For six weeks, two simulations were conducted comparing “Buy and Hold” trading to “Swing” trading. Initially, both portfolios started with $100,000 and invested all of the money into ten companies. In the “Buy and Hold” simulation, these ten companies were untouched, whereas in the “Swing” simulation transactions were made daily. At the end of the six weeks the “Swing” simulation’s rate of return was 35.89%, while the “Buy and Hold” simulation’s rate of return was 12.63%. Overall, active trading outperformed passive trading each week with the ability to opt out of stocks that were declining in value and reassess the economic situation as required.
