Understand Google Finance syntax within Google Sheets
Perform analysis and produce data visualization elements of the data set
Showcase this hands-on experience in an interview
Have you ever wondered how to capture the always-changing stock prices of various companies into a concise dashboard? Global stock markets are ecosystems containing many changing data such as company stock prices, volumes, and currencies. Traders, bankers, investors and many more watch how these markets interact with changing news, which can ultimately impact their investment portfolios. By the end of this project, you will be able to create a stock dashboard using Google Sheets. You will use Google Sheets inbuilt formulas to come up with recent data that was traded in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and use data visualization to summarize multiple data points into charts and infographics to make it easy to understand how particular stocks performed over a given period. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
Familiarity with the stock market, Google Sheets, or any other spreadsheet software (not required, but preferred).
