ORDERING INFORMATION FOR
SPECULATOR: THE STOCK TRADING SIMULATION
NOTE REGARDING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE FREE ("SHAREWARE") VERSION
AND THE REGISTERED VERSION OF SPECULATOR: The Registered Version
of Speculator differs from the shareware version you may have been
playing up until now in several ways:
The Registered Version:
- Allows you to play games of up to 30 years in length, while the
shareware version limits game play to a maximum length of 3 years.
(With games of 30 years, it is much more likely that you will be
able to increase your initial $100,000 portfolio value enough to
qualify for margin trading, short selling, options trading, and
- Provides stock charts on all stocks, while stock charts are
only enabled intermittently on most stocks in the shareware version.
(However, other charts, for commodities, interest rates, GDP growth
rates, and the Global 1000 Stock Index ARE enabled in both the
shareware version and Registered Version.)
- Utilizes real company names, unlike the shareware version (which
uses made up names and stock symbols).
- Includes a "Customizer" utility program that lets you permanently
change the names, stock symbols, and nation of incorporation for any of
the 1590 companies and ETFs in the simulation.
Note regarding sales taxes and VAT taxes: U.S. purchasers will
be charged sales tax by our vendor SWREG.ORG if your address is in
the following states: CO, GA, IA, IL, MN, NE, or UT, plus, thanks to
a recent Supreme Court decision that allows states to collect sales tax
on Internet sales, a number of other states will soon be requiring that
we collect sales tax. If you reside in any state where our retailer (SWREG)
is not yet required to collect the tax, no sales tax will be collected from
you, but you may be required by state law to pay use tax on your purchase
(except in states with no sales or use taxes: DE, MT, NH, and OR -- AK has
sales and use tax only in some boroughs, but not in Anchorage or Fairbanks).
VAT taxes will be collected in most European countries, Japan and
South Korea (but not Canada, at present).
