On-line fair and ethical share trading system (Olfest)
A system is required that allows on-line customers to buy and sell stock market shares in a selection of companies.
The Olfest system allows people to trade in stock market shares on-line whilst ensuring that the companies whose shares they are buying are not involved in any unethical practices, such as using child labour or polluting the environment. It is to be used by people with money to invest who want to be sure that their money is not being used in an unethical way.
Each stock market company that is being considered for inclusion in the scheme is thoroughly research by the Olfest team to ensure that they are ethical in their business practices. Only then are the shares for the company made available on-line. Members of the scheme pay a small fee when they join which provides the resources for this vetting process.
The users of the system
People visiting the site who are interested in the scheme but are not members can request to have a pack of information sent to them.
These are people who have joined the scheme by paying a small fee and have been given a user name and password for the system. They can browse through the companies whose shares are available and they can buy and sell shares.
Must be able to add details of new members and companies whose shares are traded. They change the price of shares on a daily basis and sometimes more often in the markets are volatile. They can remove members and companies or change their details. They will also want to produce daily, weekly and monthly reports on shares that have been bought and sold.
