Challenge: Extend your project so that it can verify that a requested ticker symbol exists in the Quandl.com stocks database.
(celestial sound)…- We don't currently check that the ticker the user…asks for exists in the quantal free database of U.S. stocks.…How to amend the data module so the check is made…that the ticker exists.…To get started, note that hitting this URL will download…a ZIP file containing a list of available tickers.…You'll need to read and un-compress this stream using…System.IO.Compression.ZipArchive.…Then you'll need to open the stream using the CsvProvider…except this time there's no header…and you'll need to specify the column names like this.…
Note that the sequence could be converted into a set using…set.OC and you can then use the sets contains method to see…if something exist in the set.…Finally, you'll need to use all that to create a failure…if the requested ticker isn't in the list.…This is a hard challenge specific on your experience level…expect to spend an hour or so on this one.…And unless you're very familiar with .NET streams…of compression expect to do some online research.…Also, don't spend too much time struggling with this…
