The code below get no errors but, does not pull data from the database. At first, I thought it just wasn't loading into the table. I tested it by adding echo statements to see if the query pulled any data. Nothing was displayed. I can't finish the chapter if I can't get this.

$link = mysql_connect("localhost","bp5am","bp5ampass")

loss or broke even */

    $font_color = 'red';
    $profit_or_loss = "$" . $difference . "m";
  } elseif ($difference > 0) {
    $font_color ='green';
    $profit_or_loss = "$" . $difference . "m";
  } else {
    $font_color = 'blue';
    $profit_or_loss = "Broke even";
  return "" . $profit_or_loss . "";
