During this four-week stock market simulation, two separate accounts were set up, each initially funded with $100,000, to test the effectiveness of two investment strategies: buy and hold, and momentum trading. Prior to the simulation, a careful analysis of ten selected companies was conducted. The results of this experiment were quite revealing. The buy and hold strategy outperformed the momentum trading strategy, yielding a respectable profit of 3.69%, while the momentum trading strategy only managed a more modest gain of 0.74%. This project provides valuable insights into the world of stock market investing, demonstrating that a patient approach of holding onto stocks for the long term can be more profitable compared to quick trading, at least for the selected companies in this study.
