I'm designing an application that will keep various data on stocks.  For example, I'll keep the 200-day moving average for all business days during the last 5 years.  I'll be tracking about 6000 stocks.  SQL Server Express 2005 has a 4GB data limitation and that should be sufficient.

Using SQL Server Express 2005,
1)  Am I correct in saying that each table has a limitation of 1024 columns?
2)  Is there a limit to the number of rows?
3)  Is there a limit to the number of tables?
4)  If no table limit, or the limit exceeds 6000, are there performance impacts of a large number of tables?  (I will access no more than a few in any one query)

Thank you.
