A comprehensive study of the stock market was performed, including its history and components, as well as various strategies that are used to make profits. A simulation was then performed, so that the team members could gain a better understanding of the investment process, and apply some of the knowledge gained to a "real life" portfolio. It is hoped that this knowledge was conveyed in such a manner that a person with no previous investment experience could read through the report and gain enough insight to be able to begin investing.
