[Solved] Query slow with two (almost the same) join but faster with either one

How to optimize this SQL query?

In case you have your own slow SQL query, you can optimize it automatically here.

For the query above, the following recommendations will be helpful as part of the SQL tuning process.
You'll find 3 sections below:

  1. Description of the steps you can take to speed up the query.
  2. The optimal indexes for this query, which you can copy and create in your database.
  3. An automatically re-written query you can copy and execute in your database.
The optimization process and recommendations:
  1. Avoid Selecting Unnecessary Columns (query line: 2): Avoid selecting all columns with the '*' wildcard, unless you intend to use them all. Selecting redundant columns may result in unnecessary performance degradation.
  2. Create Optimal Indexes (modified query below): The recommended indexes are an integral part of this optimization effort and should be created before testing the execution duration of the optimized query.
Optimal indexes for this query:
ALTER TABLE `DAILY_PRICE` ADD INDEX `daily_price_idx_trade_date_stock_code_exchange` (`TRADE_DATE`,`STOCK_CODE`,`EXCHANGE`);
The optimized query:
        POSITION_QUERY t1 
        DAILY_PRICE t2 
            ON t1.STOCK_CODE = t2.STOCK_CODE 
            AND t1.STOCK_EXCHANGE = t2.EXCHANGE 
            AND t2.TRADE_DATE = 20181121 
        DAILY_PRICE t3 
            ON t1.INDEX_CODE = t3.STOCK_CODE 
            AND t1.INDEX_EXCHANGE = t3.EXCHANGE 
            AND t3.TRADE_DATE = 20181121
