Description from the packaging.

A competitive game of financial speculation.

This true-to-life program includes:

  • A Stock Market Simulator
  • An Investment Tracker
  • An Investment Advisor

At a glance:
You are a savvy Wall Street investor speculating in stocks, real estate, precious metals, minerals, and high risk/return ventures.

You have $1,000,000 to invest! This should put you on Easy Street- or into the Poorhouse! If your cash is running low, your bankers or another trader may give you a loan- but their interest rates may be very high. You can buy a company and collect a fat paycheck- but be careful! You may be bought out, or the taxes will kill you.

This true-to-life program includes:

  • A Stock Market Simulator:

Wall Street is a competitive investment game based on realistic financial models. The wary investor will be able to spot economic trends and profit from them. However- like in real life- a little luck never hurts.

This Market Simulator also shows you your tax liability, so the investor that plans well will have an edge.

  • An Investment Tracker:

A Bar Chart displays the past trends of your next possible investment- and helps you invest wisely. Press a key and view your present portfolio performance to evaluate how well you are doing.

  • An Investment Advisor:

An electronic Investment Advisor is available to help you make decisions.

You may now know what to do with the big windfall from that movie investment, but you can't let the money sit idly in your bank account. Call in your investment Advisor. He studies the Market and will guide you. But be careful! He's not always right- and he's expensive!
