Abstract

Our goal is to create a webpage where a user can research investments and will pick stocks according to the user's specifications. The stocks that will be chosen will be fetched via a "filtering program" taking into account all of the user's predefined specifications (i.e. what kind of stocks, in which market, the current trends, stock history, etc). By focusing on how the stock market functions, we show how simple transactions are made, the decision-making process of becoming an investor, and how to predict current trends. This was carried out by taking a survey of three simulated investments and periodically by checking its progress and making informed decisions through research and analysis.
