The stock market can be for trading stocks, or buying benefits.

Stock Ticker

To use the stocks, you must own a Stock Ticker. A Stock Ticker can be purchased from the Points Building for 20 Points.

Stock Trading

Buying stocks

There are two ways that you can purchase stocks: through the stock market, or by trading directly with another player. The latter is very simple, and is accomplished through the trade system.

The stock market can be accessed from the north side of the city. Clicking this link will take you to a page with lists all of the stocks in the Torn City Stock Exchange, along with each stock’s current price, the price change over the last 24 hours, the percentage of change, and a small graph showing the price over the last 24 hours. The price change and percent change are color coded, with rising stocks’ values printed in green, stable values in yellow, and falling values in red.

Clicking on either the logo or graph of a stock takes you to that stock’s profile. Profiles contain a lot of information about the stock:

  • A description of the company that is offering the stock
  • What the performance of the stock is based upon
  • What benefits are available, and how many shares are required to receive the benefit
  • Acronym
  • Director
  • Forecast
  • Demand
  • Current price
  • Market cap
  • Total shares
  • Shares for sale
  • Graphs of the stock’s performance
  • Price changes in the past 24 hours

At the bottom of the profile is a form for purchasing this stock, where you can enter either the number of shares or dollar amount that you want to invest.

Selling stocks

Just as there are two ways to buy stocks, there are two ways to sell them. They may be sold directly to another player using the trade system, at whatever price is agreed upon. Stocks may also be sold through the stock market.

To sell a stock, go to City > Stock Market > Your Portfolio where you will see a listing of all the stocks you own. In each listing, there is a link to Sell. Clicking this link puts the shares up for sale in the Stock Market (there is no confirmation screen). Once you have put shares on the market, the information about them remains in your portfolio, with an option to Remove from market. A single click on that link restores those shares to your portfolio. While shares are up for sale, you lose the ability to split or stack them.

Stock Benefits

Stock benefits are now based on the number of shares owned, not the amount of money invested.
