the original idea was best mk way to make money in just a few seconds, go, buy, come back, sell, and it could be done over and over untill a level 5 gets LI, so -1 for it
Ok.. so let me lay down a scenario..
You buy 3,000 shares at 217
3,000 x 217 = 651,000
But then there is a 10% charge for buying..
651,000 x .10 = 65,100 + 651,000 = 716,100
Now the recorded high of this stock is $319
3,000 x 319 = 957,000 x .10 = 95,700 - 957,000 = 861,300
145,200 profit... That is hell of a lot more profit then 23,460. So why ain't everyone getting rich off the stock market?
BECAUSE ITS NEVER AT ITS HIGHEST HIGH OR ITS LOWEST LOW. If it would make everyone happy I will be adding a new rule to this.
Now, in the real drug trade you just can't show up in town and expect to get a kilo of coke. You got to have some back ground, some experience, and possibly a reputation. That being said, in order for you to sell/buy drugs in LA you must first do 100 sells in Jersey(our home town) Then to do any buy/sell of drugs in New York you had to of sold over 250 drugs in LA or Jersey. ... and so on, and so forth. Ill finish that idea up on the top post.
but changing the stock market to drug market is not a bad idea, but mark already has a very long TO-DO list so it would be just one more thing to ocupy his time instead of focusing on the great upgrades, so a -1 for it aswell
This is a good upgrade, its a feature that new players will see and find entertainment with. They see stock markets in every other text based game they have played. But a drug market where you can go to other cities and sell. This is how mobsters made money after prohibition, buy low in Jersey sell high in New York. This WILL NOT flood money into MK, you guys are seeing the highest high and the lowest lows.. if ADMIN would of posted the stock market idea in here first and you people saw the highest highs and lowest lows, you would -1 it all day, everyday. Stop thinking that the numbers I posted are the set numbers, because they are NOT, they will fluctuate... just like the stock market does.
Let me add this. The idea of this feature is not to add money to MK, but to give something else for us to do to pass the time. Now the new cap on this idea, cap being everyone must of had 100 transaction in Jersey before they can sell in LA and so on and so forth. This will keep all the high level people from jumping in and selling in DC and buying in Jersey. Read the first two posts to see the new cap idea, and see if that doesn't sway your thoughts. AND PLEASE REMEMBER YOU CAN MAKE 120,000 MORE IN STOCKS THEN YOU CAN IN THE DRUG TRADE!! THIS WILL NOT FLOOD MK WITH MONEY!!!
I have also asked for this feature to be added to the 'Shady-Looking Stranger' page, which is a page for RM players only.
Realistically, most people don't have $600,000 laying around to invest in stocks. In real life, stocks have a 50% chance of going either up or down. You will also be lucky if your stock goes up by 5-10 cents in a week.
