This project is an eight-week stock market simulation, four of those weeks simulated with a portfolio meant to be diversified, and the other four simulated under a narrow portfolio. This project utilized real world trends, as well as statistics and numbers focused obtained from several reliable sources linked to the stock market. Both stock simulators started out with a portfolio value of 100,000 dollars, with this money being invested into sectors based on the makeup of the S&P 500. In the end, the diversified strategy demonstrated greater success than that of the narrow portfolio, finishing up with a positive gain of 2.44% while the narrow portfolio finished with a loss of 0.25% which wasn’t too significant, but still lags behind the diversified strategy. Overall, the project helps provide insight into how to invest in the stock market, as well as providing experience in stock trading.
