Wall Street Tycoon is a financial simulation that immerses players in the fast and furious world of stock trading. Feel the power as you buy, sell and trade whole companies and feel the pain of a market crash, without investing your livelihood or your soul. In the fast moving world of the stock exchange, information is the key to victory: players must simultaneously scan news feeds, real-time charts and continuous radio broadcasts about where the market might be headed.
Through a combination of historically based and randomly generated scenarios, Wall Street Tycoon gives the player the opportunity to explore all aspect of the rapidly changing market: it’s as close to real trading as you can get without being on the trading floor!
Using a sophisticated economic model, WST can generate random scenarios that allow you to trade a simulated portfolio.
WST can also be used in conjunction with real NYSE and NASDAQ stock quotes taken from the Internet in real-time: buy and sell stock from the largest corporations in the world, using continuously updated quotes. The only difference with the real thing is that you’re not spending money!
10 historical missions bring pivotal moments of the stock market back to life. Relive the era of the Robber Barons, the roaring 20’s, the 70’s oil crisis or the 1929 crash. Furthermore, WST includes data for every NYSE and NASDAQ security for the past twenty years, closing day prices and intraday tick-by-tick data.
Play on the Internet against hundreds of other players in a massively multiplayer competition.
WST is more than a game, it is also a highly complete educational introduction to the many facets of stock trading. Including many detailed walkthroughs, WST details how the market works, how it was developed, what purpose it serves.
