The project is developed to provide an insight to anyone who intends to understand and make an initial entry into the US stock market. It involves an exercise of investing some imaginary money in some widely held US stocks in different sectors. At the end of the holding period, the performances of the stocks are analyzed and a general judgment of the present market condition is reached. Based on the past and present trends, a future prediction of the market condition is reached. I believe this project could be a good "stepping-stone" for someone who wants to be a real stock market investor in the future.
