Abstract

The purpose of this interactive qualifying project was to learn stock market and investment strategies with an aim to make profit. A six-week stock market simulation was conducted to achieve that goal. Seven companies were selected with experimental or historical reasons. By the end of this simulation, the portfolio had a 3.87% return during the six-week simulation while the S & P 500 index returned 0.915% at the same time. The knowledge about stock market and different strategies acquired during this project can be applied in future investments.
