By researching investing strategies and the stock market through electronic and print sources, an eight-week stock market simulation was conducted to test three separate stock trading methods. The methods were: Buy and Hold, the Penny Stock method, and the Contrarian method. All three methods began with $100,000 of investing money and the amount of money was compared at the end of the 8-week period. The knowledge and experience gained from this project will be helpful in future realistic investments.
