We all read https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/ and trade stocks, so last year we made the prized YoloOnFannieMae which recommends stocks based on the subreddit. This year, we wanted to utilize our award-winning API and actually build a project that buys the recommended stocks on a simulated trading environment!
What it does
It prompts the user to create a Investopedia account (to do simulated stock trading). Then it presents users with 4 faces representing our 4 developers and based on whichever developer you click, it will buy a random amount of a random stock that is returned from our best YoloOnFannieMae API, so effectively you are buying stocks recommended from /r/wallstreetbets.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
InvestopediaAPI uses dashes, so importing it in python 2.7 was broken :(
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Having this awesome top notch site that we can proudly share! https://hughbets-ui.herokuapp.com/
What I learned
What's next for HughBets
Project that buys REAL stocks instead of simulated one!
