Abstract

A stock market simulation was conducted by using three methods: day trading, pennywise trading, and mid-term trading. These methods were used to trade stocks over a period of twelve weeks and results were analyzed to find which method would result in the largest capital gain. Mid-term trading proved to be the most consistent and successful method of the three, as well as the most financially secure.
