Stock Market Simulation
Blue Chip Software has announced the release of a program for Apple and IBM computers– Millionaire.
Available on a 5 ¼" and 8" disk, Millionaire brings the user into the world of Wall Street. Players can manipulate as many as 15 different stocks (such as IBM, Exxon, Bendix, etc.) with a dazzling array of transaction formats. They can buy and sell stocks, put options, call options, buy on margin, borrow against their net worth, etc.
Users familiar with the stock market will quickly recognize the accuracy that author Jim Zuber maintains throughout the game. In fact, players can summon each of the 15 stocks' corporate histories as well as week-by-week industry trends and graphs.
For the player who knows little or nothing about the stock market, playing Millionaire will provide a friendly, easily understood atmosphere in which to learn.
Millionaire is available to run on Apple II Plus and III ($79.95); IBM PC, Osborne and other CP/M systems ($99.95).
