Abstract

Overview of the stock market and other types of investments along with the development of analytical tools, trading techniques, and researching skills were performed using the Investopedia's on-line stock market simulator. A ten-week stock market simulation was conducted to gain investment and trading experience. Weekly records of four traders covering short-term penny stock, momentum -- growth, fundamental, and value investing trading strategies were compared to discover ways of maximizing profit. The experience learned will help the traders to become intelligent investors and to gain more fundamental knowledge of the stock market.
