Output Details

Stock (example CAT) is stock ticker of a Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) stock.

Current Date represents the most recent market date stored in the history file.

Current Close represents the most recent closing price for the current market date stored in the history file. Use the Close value for this, not the Adj Close.

Market Days represents a time period for analysis. For example, 1000 market days represents the last 1000 entries in the history file. The number of market days is inclusive. If the market days is 5 and the current date is 2019-11-27, then the last 5 market days are 2017-11-27, 2017-11-26, 2017-11-25, 2017-11-22, and 2017-11-21.

Start Date is the first date in a time span of the length indicated by the number of Market Days and ending with the Current Date.

Open Price is the opening price (Open) on the Start Date.

Up Days is the number of days in the time period in which the stock Close price is greater than the stock Open price. Down Days is the number of days in the time period in which the stock Close price is less than the stock Open price. Gain is the difference between the Current Close price and Open Price when time period starts.

Pct Gain is the percentage gain from the Open Price when time period starts and the Current Close price.

Max Close is the highest close that occurs during the time period for analysis.

Avg Close is the average close that occurs during the time period for analysis.

  9. The report format must closely follow the sample output above. Dollar values, number alignment, percentage formats, and approximate spacing must be

  10. Use any one of the input files for test: csv      MSFT.csv                                                               WMT.csv

  11. Your program must use the original CSV input file. You may not modify the original input file outside of your

Note: your solution will be graded using another current input file of the same size.

Program Hints

There are many parts to this assignment. Break your solution down into pieces (functions), write and test each piece as you proceed. Start with reading in the history file. Make sure you are successful with that first, then proceed.

In the beginning, work with a small amount of data (maybe array sizes of 10), so that you can see that you are performing calculations correctly.

Don't worry about formatting the output until the end after you know you have all of the calculations are correct. Make sure you test as you proceed.

Suggestions

  1. Read in the input file and remove the

  2. Since the input date is recorded in the input file from oldest to newest, you may want to store the data backwards in the arrays.

  3. Write a function to calculate the number of up days for the time

  4. Write a function to calculate the number of down days for the time

  5. Write a function to determine the max close for the time

  6. Write a function to determine the average close for the time
