Trying to implement a dropdown menu in sell_form.php so that the user can choose one of the stocks he/she owns and sell it. However, the dropdown menu doesn't seem to be working properly, can someone help?

        <!-- the selected attribute preselects the tag -->
        <option selected="selected"> Choose One </option>
        <?php foreach($symbols as $symbol => $value){ ?>
        <option value="<?php $value ?>"><?= $value ?></option>
        <?php } ?>

I'm passing in $symbols as the array that contains all the stocks the user owns

I'm an idiot, I passed the wrong variable name (symbol instead of symbols) using render(). Problem fixed.
