Backtest the musical

In September of 2007, the Learning Lab rolled out Backtester,a Flex-based backtesting tool for use in investment classes.  I learned a lot about Flex and ActionScript while working on Backtester and am particularly proud of application’s wizard component, which allows users to design an investment strategy in 3 easy steps and test it against historical data.
