open in viewer

In this Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP), several investment avenues were investigated. It was found that there is no single great investment for balancing risk and reward. A 6-week stock market simulation was performed to test out two different trading strategies. Technical trading made a 22% profit through risky trades, while buy and hold trading steadily increased to a 5% profit. It was learned through this IQP that there are no shortcuts in the world of finance and the best, steady results require time.
