This project is a six-week stock market simulation. This project aims to gain knowledge of the stock market and its trends to make a profit during the simulation successfully. Two trading methods were tested: Buy-and-hold and Day Trading. Stock simulations were performed with six selected companies as portfolios and a starting investment of $100,000.00. Each strategy started with an identical portfolio. The returns of the simulations were a 2.74% gain for the Buy-and-Hold strategy and a 0.72% gain for the Day Trading strategy, respectively. The total gain of the S&P 500 index was 4.13% throughout the six-week simulation. The simulation results indicated that the Buy-and-Hold strategy was more profitable than the Day Trading strategy. However, neither beat the market. This project provides the participants a trading experience that will benefit them in future investments.
