Description from the packaging.

One of your best investments!

Until now, stock market simulations were about as captivating as balancing your checkbook, but this software version of Avalon Hill's stock market board game eliminates the drudgery and leaves you with the excitement! Who has not dreamed of turning a nest egg into a killing on the market? Computer Stocks & Bonds gives you the opportunity to parlay your pet investment strategies into solid capital gains.

Beginning with an initial $5,000.00, you and your friends can speculate in shares of nine different corporations, or salt some of your money away in safe municipal bonds. Will you opt for slow but steady capital appreciation and the secure dividends of a public utility or mutual fund, or go for more spectacular growth (and a greater risk of loss) in the glamour industries of autos and real estate development? Perhaps the plunger in you craves the wild roller coaster of the oil and uranium stocks? Whatever you choose, Computer Stocks & Bonds stands ready as your loyal and unassuming broker, ready to entertain your investment fantasies for a modest fee.

This Deluxe Edition of Computer Stocks & Bonds offers you features found on no other stock market game in existence! Created especially for the Atari, the Deluxe Edition allows up to four players to record their buy and sell decisions simultaneously. Utilizing the unique Atari joystick controllers, each player manipulates information on his sector of the transaction screen in a true timesharing environment. At any time, players can summon up colorful stock analysis charts, displaying not only the price history of the stock, but also detailed information on each player's performance with that company. Between turns, a simulated wire service teletype cranks out news flashes of special circumstances affecting individual stocks, in addition to a summary of market activity and a forecast for the future. No other computer investment game offers so much color, sound and technical sophistication.

For One to Four Players. One joystick controller required for each player.

Computer Stocks & Bonds is ready to run on your Atari 800 computer with Atari Basic and 40K memory. Atari 810 Disk Drive required. The Deluxe Edition is available only on diskette for the Atari computer.
