This model simulates the performance of an investment into Acme stock over a ten year period. In this case, the initial holding is $1000, and an additional $1000 is invested after each simulated year. The price of the stock is modeled using a history generator, which is then used by the Investment element (My_Acme_Account) to determine the current value of investment holdings.
The plot below shows the projected value of an investment for a single realization. It is one possible outcome among many.
The plot below shows the range of possibility in this model, after running 100 realizations.
Finally, we can plot a summary that shows the annual returns compared to investments, market gains/losses, and ending balance for each year.
