Weekly Self-Promotion Thread – December 05, 2018


Self-promotion (ie posting about projects/businesses that you operate and can profit from) is typically a practice that is discouraged in /r/financialindependence, and these posts are removed through moderation. This is a thread where those rules *do not* apply. **However**, please do not post referral links in this thread.

Use this thread to talk about your blog, talk about your business, ask for feedback, etc. If the self-promotion starts to leak outside of this thread, we will once again return to a time where 100% of self-promotion posts are banned. Please use this space wisely.

**Link-only posts will be removed. Put some effort into it.**

As a hobby, I’ve been picking up some basic web development skills.

My latest project is a “Stock and Bond Market Visualizer”.

It’s an interactive web tool that lets you select from a set of investment indices (S&P500, TSX60, MSCI global all cap, US bond index), and select a time period to analyze.

The page then generates a bunch of outputs dynamically:

  • Chart of daily prices
  • Annualized return calculation (with toggle for dividend adjusted returns)
  • Returns by year
  • Daily return statistics

I learned a ton doing this, and I’m pretty pleased with the result!

Here it is: Stock and bond market visualizer
