    Have just learnt a whole lot by someone who knows what they're talking about, and would love to know if this will eventually be able to:
    • Buy into ETF's / Indices
    • Allow you to short stocks
    • And do options
    Just had a big lesson in all this. I think some of it would allow the game to be taken to a whole new level for those serious about the game. Buying directly into ETF's and Indices allows a broader, and quicker, diversification of funds across a safety net of companies.
    I noticed that the symbols for those don't work at the NASDAQ and others, as this obviously doesn't tap into them yet.

    Unfortunately, this is not a real world stock simulator designed for the wall street/day trader/stock professional... it's a simple, non complex fantasy game made for forum entertainment purposes only. Its extremely basic so that even people that have no clue about the stock market and the way things actually work can use it and enjoy it.

    As I've explained to a few others that want higher end stock simulator functionality, I am limited to creating functionality based on data available through the public API (which is very limited, specially with exchanges outside of the US), so some higher end functionality that people might want to see, just won't ever happen. Personally, I wanted to run everything off the Bid and Ask, but the data via the API just is not reliable enough to do it. I do plan on more advanced stuff down the road, but its never going to be geared towards real world professional simulation, its geared towards providing forums with some entertainment regardless if one knows anything about stocks or not. Hope that makes sense :)

    no, "start" cash is based off of the default value for the sportsbook_cash field in the xf_user table.
