This Interactive Qualifying Project includes a study of the Stock Market and some major factors that influence its trends. An in depth analysis was conducted for several investment methods and selected companies in an effort to determine methods to successfully beat the stock market. A simulation was conducted using both day trading and short term investment strategies to produce maximum profits. These methods were compared to long term investing to determine their respective success rate.
