|Abstract Text||The aim of this thesis is to develop an automated correction tool using the Python programming language to efficiently correct the Involving Activity 3 in the course Asset Management: Investments. The exercise requires students to create two momentum strategies based on historical stock prices of 18 stocks using varying look-back and holding periods. The tool is designed to be highly flexible in terms of input data, loock-back, and holding periods, enabling the momentum strategies to be effectively tested and compared to a buy-and-hold strategy. The tool offers a powerful approach for correcting the Involving Activity 3 leading to faster processing times and minimized errors compared to manual correction methods.|
