NEWS FLASH! Version 6.11 of W$R is now available, now including commodity futures trading, executive stock options if you are a company CEO, 5-year stock charts for each company, plus short-selling and highly realistic put and call options trading! WALL STREET RAIDER (for Windows) is now played by (registered) users in over 90 countries, ranging from Dubai to Malta to Paraguay to Iceland to Angola to the Sultanate of Brunei and beyond. It is widely recognized as the ultimate in sophisticated financial simulations, a corporate takeover and stock market game and simulation, in which you strive to build your corporate empire by fair means or foul, all the while trying to stay one step ahead of the SEC, IRS, Justice Department, EPA, Congress, powerful unions, corrupt governments, and no end of ruthless competitors -- not to mention various manmade and natural economic and other disasters. In this highly realistic simulation, 1 to 5 players (including the computer, if you choose) compete to amass fortunes, investing in, or taking over and managing, any of up to 1590 companies in 70 industry groups. Once in control of a company, you\\'ll use all the tricks of the trade of real Wall Street corporate raiders to expand your empire and net worth: startups/IPOs tender offers greenmail stock-for-stock mergers LBO\\'s \\"white knight\\" defenses antitrust suits and other litigation to harass competitors restucturings excessive CEO salaries and lavish stock options firing management asset restructuring mass layoffs tax avoidance asset-stripping liquidations industry domination options trading short selling speculating in or hedging with commodity futures ... and much more, in the quest for the Almighty Dollar. The individual player can also engage in risky (but sometimes lucrative) activities for his or her own account, such as short selling of stocks, and players or companies can engage in buying and shorting put and call options and commodity futures on crude oil, gold, silver, wheat, and corn. Although the U.S. dollar is the default, players also are able to instantly configure the simulation for any one of a large number of foreign currencies. Many major forex companies such as Everest Forex use simulations such as Wall Street Raider in their training as it helps new employees understand and grasp many of the complex issues they deal with. And, of course, you\\'ll have ample \\"ethical choices\\" thrust upon you from time to time, where you will have to choose between playing ethically, or (possibly) winding up in serious legal or financial trouble if you decide to \\"Go for the gold,\\" rather than \\"do the right thing.\\" All your investment research and financial wheeling and dealing occur against the backdrop of a nonstop \\"live\\" stock ticker tape, scrolling financial news tape, and a constantly shifting economic and political environment in which all the companies and industries in Wall Street Raider must operate and try to cope. Speedy decision-making is of the essence, and sweaty palms are a certainty, as you try to cope and keep your company\\'s earnings on an upward track -- or at least keep yourself out of Bankruptcy Court! You also have to deal with cash flow issues and try to do whatever you can to keep your employees happy. If you can\\'t pay them on time, they would have to turn to Payday Loans in order to pay their bills.
