Among numerous investment strategies in the stock market, this stock market simulation focused on the conservative strategy of John Bogle, which states that stock trading is a losing game and investment in index funds is a more profitable strategy. The theory was tested by comparing the performance of an actively managed portfolio in an online simulator to index funds approximating the market. The outcome was a draw, with both active and passive strategies resulting in depreciation over a down market.
