Project Description

I require a web scraper to scrape information off the Yahoo Finance website and with the quote search performed on our website, will gather the information required from Yahoo Finance and print it out on the web page. This will include scraping basic quote information, news relating to the quote searched and history of the quotes.

Right now we simply require the quotes to be saved into variables to be displayed through search results similar to some share websites today. As well as use the scraper to correspond possibly with MySQL data of user quote preferences through a user watchlist/portfolio panel and display the required information accordingly. The news will most likely displayed on a separate table. The history to be saved on a hidden table as we are planning to create graphs from that data.
