After looking at the complications of investing in stocks and options, we decided to create a financial hack that would have a global impact in terms of simplifying and automating the way we invest. We believed we could make a difference that would benefit everyone as a whole and revolutionize the investing process.
What it does
Our hack pulls real-time data from the stock market and utilizes multiple indexes such as the RSI, CCI, MACD, etc. to help investors make profitable and safe investments while also being able to sell if investments are at risk.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Installing libraries, hard coding, getting stock data (especially on weekends), and back-end testing, staying awake.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
As a group, we persevered through hard moments where the code wouldn't work as intended. Collaborating, we were able to solve most of the problems that came our way whether it be simple syntax errors and complicated algorithm issues. Mostly, we are proud of our final product.
What we learned
Learned how to use AJAX, different libraries, and a plethora of stock data apis.
What's next for ezstox
Improving stock data and matching portfolios. Improving implementation of apis during the weekend as well as configuring different indexes.
