A desire to relate news articles to current financial markets.

What it does

At this time, it takes a user-inputted stock ticker and then returns current stock information in a popup Google Chrome extension.

How I built it

This is a Google Chrome extension written in JavaScript primarily, along with relevant a HTML document. The

Challenges we ran into

Lack of knowledge about web development. Inability to search for stock tickers by company name.

What we learned

Web development is a lot harder than it looks.

What's next for Stock Extension

Adding functionality to crawl a webpage for tickers and automatically load them up.
