Hello /biz/. My college class is doing a stock market project on MarketWatch. We have $200,000 and three months to increase our net worth as much as possible. What the hell do I do. How do I guarantee money in three months? Help me /biz/
sensible stuff doesn't work in these competitions... you need to gamble it up with highly volatile picks and hope it pays off
luck rather than skill is what the winner will be reliant on

I heard of a game on the Stockfuse platform where a dude ran a python script flipping VOO and SPY in huge amounts for the price difference cause bid-ask spreads and order quantities were not modeled. He made bank and one the game.
Invest in bonds of a stable government. Your return is going to be low, but your classmates are gonna basically lose all their money investing in stupid shit

With the prices of lead zinc silver etc look for mining companies Canadian Alaska based something the Illnino will support. Lots of large companies have been able to work through this winter and will have a shit ton to export once the shipping season opens.
Just buy a passive index fund, like a vanguard SP500 ETF. You'll be able to find a ton of literature to use as justification for passive investing which you can use to get a good grade. Passive investing in index funds is the wisest course of action so your professor will probably get a hard on for you. Plus you wont waste time researching stocks which you could spend on other assignments.
You won't come in first place but you will outperform most of your classmates.
