    I'm at +250. Which is OK I suppose. Wait it out it might change or cut your loses and try some different stocks if you don't think they will turn around. Stock Exchange is a lot like gambling... I think that's why people are so addicted to it. Unlike gambling though with the right information you can eliminate most odds but like gambling the biggest rewards come from the highest risks.

    Its mine 1st time to do something even similar to this, so I do not understand a lot of that.
    I was planing to sell some of these, but i will w8 a bit more.
    I bought so many low prizes, so even slight decrease, hit me quite hard.
    To bad rest of members dont participate at this, its rly fun, even if u lose some coins :)

    Indeed, it's neat even if coins are loss or little is gained.

    I dont know to to explain u exactly, but i will try like this. Every company has shares ("deonice/akcije" on serbian), u can buy/sell them on Stock Market and earn/lose money.
    In this game, instead of real money we use ogre coins.
    For example: Aaddron bought 25 shares of Nvidia. As u can see cost of one share is 20.97 so he payed 25 * 20.97 = 524.25 coins for that investments. Now if cost of those shares jump from 20.97 to 22.00 he will get 550 coins for that.
    U can check cost of shares on Yahoo Finance like it say on 1st page.
    Hope i clarify this for u.

    I wasn't really getting any return anyways (owned a lot of TT cards) so basically still counts :) Hoping if it restarts they will convert for participating.

    Was looking at this today... I'm not sure how it all works but apparently my number of stocks doubled somehow. They are also doing well. My holdings went up from 5k to 14k. My total return is +3.7k so far, not bad :)

    Here is a blast from the past that would like to return:).

    Instead of long defunct coins, will just be using forum points from here on out!
