Ronin Software is pleased to announce the latest release of our software game
program, "Wall Street Raider," for Windows (Version 8.71). ($21.95)
Wall Street Raider, now played by registered users in well over 100
countries and all 50 U.S. states, is a highly realistic simulation of
the stock market and global economy, in which each player begins with up
to $1 billion and competes against up to four other human or computer
players in buying, selling and shorting stocks, trading government bonds,
corporate bonds (including convertible bonds), put and call options,
and commodity and stock index futures, and entering into interest rate
swap derivatives contracts (which are basically bets on the direction
of various interest rates) with brokers or financial institutions
as the counter-party. The simulation consists of up to five players
and up to 1,575 corporations in 70 industry groups, plus 15
Exchange-Traded Funds ("ETFs") that invest in stocks and in other
investments such as options or commodities.
Players can also buy up control of one or more companies and manage them,
attempting to increase each company's stock price by various means, including
a full range of realistic corporate financial transactions, such as mergers,
liquidations, spin-offs, LBOs, stock and bond offerings, etc..
The object of the game is to parlay your already large initial
$1 billion stake into a massive corporate empire, increasing your
net worth to more than that of any of the other players, whether
they are human players or computer players.
All action in this fun and educational game occurs in a simulated "live"
economy and stock market, using a simulated online discount brokerage account.
Play is punctuated at times by financial booms or shocks, technology or
marketing breakthroughs (or breakdowns) at individual companies, and major
political or economic events, with constantly scrolling stock and news
headline tickers providing a massive flow of investment information.
The investment environment constantly changes as players do their
investment research and trading, using the wide range of research tools
provided, while seeking out profitable investments in the turbulent and
very realistic financial financial markets and economic model created
by the simulation. No two games are ever the same.
Developed by author Michael D. Jenkins, a Harvard-trained lawyer, CPA,
and lifelong investor in stocks, bonds and options, Raider is a highly
addictive, realistic stock trading game that is designed to teach players
about investing as well as to entertain, and no two games are ever the
