Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock (Java)

Say you have an array for which the ith element is the price of a given stock on day i.
If you were only permitted to complete at most one transaction (ie, buy one and sell one share of the stock), design an algorithm to find the maximum profit.

Solution:
loop through entire list  and  catch min_price and the position of this this price, when current reached price's position after min_price's position then do calculate difference and up max_profit
