As discussed in Stock Market Analysis Project, the lack of a simple and readily available list of Ticker Symbol has resulted in the need for a program that is capable of generating candidate Ticker Symbol. With an exchange that uses both 3 and 4 character symbols, this does become impractical as it results in 46,656 numbers of 3-character symbols and 1,769,616 numbers of 4-character symbol. For the purpose of the examples here, we will stick to just the 3-charater symbols; which is a manageable exercise. It is intended that this seed-data will be replaced with a more predictive solution, should this become a real application.
The following parameters (Context Variables) may be overridden, by passing them from a parent Job.
|generate3CharacterSymbols||true||Indicates if the Job should generate 3 character symbols using characters [0-9[A-Z]|
|generate4CharacterSymbols||false||Indicates if the Job should generate 3 character symbols using characters [0-9[A-Z]|
|suffux||L||The Stock Exchange suffix to use.|
The table shown, below, demonstrates the data generated by this Job. It is a simple list of candidate Ticker Symbol.
