Financial Technology is life! One of our group member's father manages hedge funds for a living. We had asked him what would be beneficial in the real world for him to use and what isn't readily available already. His suggestion was our product, Exposed.
What it does
Exposed finds information that is available on "RankAndFilled" api and takes their data from the SEC Fillings available to the public. We use this data to categorize and display valuable information as a quick summary for anyone interested in investing in a stock. Unlike all other stock apps, we provide who the shareholders are inside the company and their shares as well as the institutions invested in the company. This can help investors see who is trading consistently and what industries are invested in what companies.
How I built it
We use sublime text editor to code our html, js, and css. We exported data from RankAndFilled Api and used this data to construct our charts. We used Plotly and D3 to make our charts and integrate it all together with out bootstrap framework of our website.
Challenges I ran into
Most of our challenges came from CSS and wit laying out the website the way we needed it to.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are most proud of integrated the D3 and css with you website
What I learned
As a group, we learned and taught each other how to use frameworks and develop a website from scratch.
What's next for Exposed
Exposed next will continue collecting data and creating better looking diagrams. More companies added to the site will increase it's value.
