Abstract

This is a seven-week project on the stock market. A simulation was done to gain knowledge on stock trading, and to study and compare two specific strategies: Day Trading and Buy and Hold. Each strategy was applied to a $500,000 simulated investment using real-time market prices. At the end of the project, the Day Trading strategy was proven to be more profitable, but also riskier. Most importantly, valuable real-life knowledge on the market and trading was acquired, which will be necessary for future investments.
