I've been logging in and out of the stock market buying various shares and manipulating the stocks with varying degrees of success.
So far I haven't become a millionaire using this method.
I've hacked the admin account but it doesn't give me anything meaningful.

Has anyone else had any luck with the stock market, manipulating the share value for substancial gains?

So far my best ploy is when I'm given a job to destroy data.
Usually the company hiring me is the chief compeitor of the people they want you to trash.
So, when their competition takes a hit, the stock of the hiring company goes up.
So before the hack I log into the market and buy shares of the hiring company.

Needless to say the stock of the company I fry goes down. So after it does, I tend to buy, and then sell when they return to normal.

But I'm only able to make a few credits this way.

Anyone with the DevCD see if I'm just seeing ghosts?
Or do jobs, and the end results of those jobs actually affect the stocks in a favorable or negative way?

If you invest in stocks whose company you worked for when taking another one down, you get more credits from it.

Make sense?

You need to own the game, not the demo, and create a new account

good tip, get LOTS of arunmor stocks BEFORE the revelation menace. like when you get the warning mail from the dead hacker. From there on out into about 1 month after revelation Arunmor stocks will increase ALOT in value, because they are kinda expencive to begin with, you should get a few 100,000 if you own 500-700 stocks maby more, never counted it:p

When you view the stocks it comes up with a list of Companies.
Correct?
Then you just click on a company and it will show you some prices and recent prices and stuff
there should be a button that says buy,   click it and your off

when you log in to the international stock market system (avaliable from Internic) you see a button that says "browse shares".   Click it
Then it comes up with a list of companies and share value.
When you click on a company, in the bottom right hand corner of the window there are two buttons. Buy and Sell.
Click these at your leisure and look to the bottom right to see how many shares you own.

NOTE:In the company list an asterisk appears in a company that you own shares in.

Help?

Stock trading system appears to be way too complicated to me. I'm trying to use different apps to dive into trading but I'm afraid it's too hard.
