This application:

  • downloads historical stock prices from Yahoo Finance,
  • calculates the returns,
  • plots the distribution of the returns in a histogram,
  • and overlays a normal distribution with the same mean and standard deviation as the historical data.
  • The application uses Maple 18's improved Internet connectivity; you can now download data from a URL straight into a matrix using ImportMatrix().
