StockBot is a stock market simulation game built with Node.js. The app runs a market simulation that uses a Twitter stream of popular cashtags. I worked on this project with two amazing developers and good friends while a student at General Assembly in the Web Development Immersive course.
The app runs a market simulation that uses a Twitter stream of popular cashtags as the only market data. The stream is fed into sentiment analysis software and given a score. Then StockBots use that information to make trade decisions. Users can interact with the app making their own trading bots and watching the market work in real-time.
