    That is idiotic buying. Go with something that pays a dividend or is needed by the people that buy it's product. Over all you are asking for the impossible with that amount you would need a lot of selling and some insider trading. Also the market is closed you can't do a thing if you want to be accurate with your project.

    If you need to make lots of money quickly, look into options.

    Or if you can't trade options, look into Direxion 3x leveraged ETFs. They give you 3x the return or inverse of several indices. Check out FAZ and FAS.
