Through the use of tools and resources available from the internet as well as text and media references, a six-week stock-market simulation was conducted to investigate the validity and success of different trading strategies in the stock market. Companies were selected to follow and trade based on two strategies: day to day Beta Investment and the Countertrend Strategy. It was found that both methods tested were adequate in producing returns. However, the day-to-day Beta strategy was more user friendly.
