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 futures trading.)

  • 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. If you reside in any state other than the seven above-mentioned states where our retailer (SWREG) does business, it is possible that no sales tax will be collected from you, but you are required by state law to pay use tax on your purchase. (However, due to the U.S. Supreme Court Wayfair decision in June, 2018, other states may soon begin requiring out-of-state sellers to begin collecting sales tax, even if the seller has no contacts with the state, such as offices or property, so by the time you read this, your state may be requiring sales tax to be collected on Internet sales.)

(No sales or use tax applies in states with no sales taxes: DE, MT, NH, and OR -- AK has local 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).
