This is a study of the stock market, concentrating on short-term trading and day trading. It includes some background into these strategies and our approach to these different strategies. A stock market simulation was then completed in order to understand how these two strategies work in real life, in hopes that a person might apply some of the lessons learned herein to stock market investing. We also kept track of our portfolio in a long-term investment strategy, to gain some insight into the benefits and drawbacks of using short-term and day trading strategies.
