What it does
Uses Blackrock's Aladdin to analyze your portfolio and see what stocks you hold, and then uses IBM Bluemix's Tone Analyzer API to determine whether your portfolio is bullish or bearish with predictions drawn from the tone of recent Seeking Alpha articles of the stocks you hold.

Challenges we ran into
Deciding what platform to use, learning how to scrape websites, trying to figure out how to use Flask
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This is the first hackathon that I have gone solo in.
What we learned
Web scraping, JSON parsing (finally), learning how to use the two APIs incorporated in this project
What's next for ToneFolio
Cleaning up the UI, stronger prediction models
