Abstract

A six-week simulation was conducted with the goals of gaining experience buying and selling stocks and making the largest profit possible. Investment decisions were made based on prior research, events occurring in the global financial landscape, and trends identified in weekly and monthly price graphs. The results were analyzed and compared to the performance of prominent indices during the same period, concluding that making stock decisions based on price trends and world events could result in a larger return rate.
