Welcome to Investments! The now 7th game of this to run. I will be running this game which is going to be similar to my previous run that dropped off >.>

The premise of the game is simple, you are an investor given some virtual dollars and use those dollars to buy virtual stocks which fluctuate every quarter in an attempt to make as much money as possible. In addition to that you can participate in various exciting events from time to time. I will be in charge of the government, the businesses that are selling stocks.


To join just start buying investments, you have $1000. If you have played a previous version of this you will start with $1200 instead.


How To Play:
To Purchase stocks/bonds you must have the available cash to purchase them at the current market price and for the stock to have enough available to sell. Simply bold in here or just make it clear what stocks/bonds you want.

Special Notes:
Bonds are a form of investments that are a sort of way for investors to mitigate risk as they offer you a stated rate of return on the amount you put into the bonds. Every two quarters (2 updates) a normal bond will pay its interest out, unless stated otherwise. Bonds are not guaranteed investments just like Stocks, if the company goes under their is a chance you will not redeem the full value of the bond. You cannot sell the bond back to the company you purchased it from either, you must sell it to other players. Bonds with higher stated returns than the market rate are considered more risky.

Futures:
A future are contracts where you buy/sell a stock at a set price in the future. These are contracts you can enact with either each other or the available future contracts that the market is currently providing (you can make your own future contracts that I will enforce if you agree to it)


Players can exchange stocks/bonds/futures/cash with each other for free as long as both accept. Please make it clear both parties accept for the transaction to be valid by making it clear with a bold of some sort


I think theres a problem with this game in that the design of this kind of leads to where the game has to be dropped of at some point with no end in sight. So what I am going to do is actually plan it so this game goes for a specific length.

This game will last 8 years (in game time), that means (32 quarters). I will post a quarter every 2-3 days real time. The person who has the most total worth in terms of asset value wins.
