    Something is wrong here. Smthblucitrus has over $190,000 worth of stocks with only a $5,730.35 net gain.

    How do you hold $190K+ with only $105K?

    I think that is an estimated value, in the distance future. I looked it up on Google, but i honestly didnt quite understand it all.

    I don't know, but I'm about ready to quit the game in protest of the fact that players are making gains off money that they should not have.

    Either we all started with $100,000, and we all currently have $100,000 +/- gains/losses, or we don't. If we don't, then tell me what I actually can buy stocks with. For now, at least smthblucitrus and whoever's hijacked asandhu23's name should be DQ'd.

    it's called buying on margin, they are paying interest on that. Anyone can do it in the game or in real life. If there portfolio goes below a certain value they will have a margin call. Then will have to sell their assets. It's a risky way of doing things.

    I see the margin part now, but I don't think they're paying any interest on it.

    Their portfolios both say, "Interest Paid: $0"

    Ergo, there's still a problem of an exploitable loophole. Can't blame smth or assandu for figuring that out and exploiting it, but I don't like how "borrowing" virtual money interest free and making money on that money is being allowed, especially when the current leader has over $77,000 bought on margin. He's working with an extra 77% scott free. That's a problem, no?

    I want to join this game but it won't let me. When I enter the password, it just takes me to the list of players, but my name doesn't appear. Can anyone help?

    Turns out the VSE doesn't know how to handle a reverse stock split in addition to its other flaws. Looks like the game is officially FUBAR.

    I was surprised by that actually. VSE is a product of MarketWatch which is a product of the WSJ.

    That is the biggest reason i chose to use them, it seemed to be a product that would have the best quality.
