This project is an introduction to three common approaches to investing in the stock market. Each method (Psychology, Fundamentals, Technical Analysis) contains a portfolio of stocks that was chosen and managed based upon the method. The period of our simulation followed the market dip after the events of September 11th, and the recovery rally right after. Records of the trades, analysis and conclusions are presented. The project can be used as a guide to the novice investor.
