Use Microsoft Access to design a database for the stock trading system. You should determine the tables to be created, the attributes in each table, and the primary key in each table. DO NOT define foreign keys in this assignment even they do exist. It will be easier for you to debug your VB program when foreign keys are absent.
The system maintains common stocks records. Each stock is described by a ticker symbol (e.g., BAC), a company name, exchange venue (e.g., NYSE), listing date, sector, and industry.
The system also keeps track of stocks’ daily closing records. Each closing record consists of a ticker symbol, a date, opening price, highest price of the day, lowest price of the day, the closing price, trading volume on that day, and 1 day price change %.
Users can use the system to place market order requests for stock trading. A market order is a request to purchase or sell a stock at the current market price. Each order request should include a ticker symbol, date and time of the request, type of order (buy or sell), quantity of stock to be traded, and order status (pending, completed, or cancelled).
2. Database population (10 points)
Use Microsoft Access to populate at least 10 records into each of the database tables created above. You must pick at least 10 stocks from this web site: http://www.1stock1.com/1stock1_112.htm , where you can find last year’s return rate % for each stock. For other stock information, please use the Yahoo! Finance (http://finance.yahoo.com/stock-center/) and search by the stock ticker symbol. The sector and industry information can be found from the company profile page on Yahoo! Finance. Please make sure that you have at least 2 sectors and 2 industries per sector, and that each industry has at least 2 stocks.
After you populate the stocks table, you should populate daily records and trading requests based on either true market data or your imagination. Please make sure that you have a mixture of different order types and statuses for different stocks. A minimum of 10 records is required for each table.
