Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This goal of the project is to conduct an eight-week stock market simulation, compare and analyze the results from the simulation using two different trading strategies (buy and hold, and swing trading). Each strategy started the simulation with $100,000 and targeted different stocks to invest in based on their goals. Based on the findings of the simulation, swing trading is a more risky trading strategy but has the potential to have higher returns. "Buy and hold" strategy was less risky, but it did not have as much potential for immediate returns. The project overall gave the reader a solid understanding of the benefits and risks associated with both trading strategies which can help guide future investments.
