PHP Stock Ticker
So this year I made it a goal to rock my investment finances, you know the whole New Year Resolution thing. It all started in late December 2014 when I picked up the book MONEY Master the Game, 7 Steps to Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins. A very special thank you to my Boss for the recommendation, this book was been life changing in terms of waking me up about my future and retirement. So after reading Tony’s words and getting fired up I took care of an old Tradition IRA I had sitting doing nothing, I mean NOTHING!
One thing Tony shares is getting your money to work for you so I did some digging and found a tool called Betterment and signed up for an account and moved my Traditional IRA over and got it working for me. Since February it’s up 3.3%, so to say I am pleased is an understatement since it has been sitting dormant since 2004…you remember I said NOTHING! After really taking Tony’s words to heart I also started a Roth IRA with Betterment as well for the tax benefits.
Like all projects I really get into Betterment was just the first step. In my quest to learn more about investing I took the next step right into the stock market. Once I started being dazzled by the market I decided I need to find a tool to help me pick stocks and figure out trending company’s to buy in. While the tool I edited does not pick stocks for me, it does help me really crunch the data and see a good overall view of the NASDAQ Capital Markets (a.k.a. Penny Stocks) for trending stocks.
The tool I edited was based on all the hard work of Mukesh Chapagain. His tool was very easy, straight forward and a breeze to use. I just wanted to make it a little more user friendly so I added some features to it which I have listed in the readme. So while it may not be the greatest invention since slice bread I give to you the PHP Stock Ticker.
