Enjoy!
market crashes are too frequent.

Is there a fix coming out soon for that?
Got it. The percent chance for market crashes was way to high (30%). With this change, I will also reduce the percent loss that can be lost in a single crash (80% max?)

However, with these changes, I will have to update the yearly percent gain, so your gains don't run off the graph within the first five years.

I will do a bulk update, so I don't have to keep going back and forth.

Let me know of any other questions/suggestions!

This reminds me of my StockSim program for the CE. Although I must admit, your program appears to be much more realistic Very Happy

Wow. I have never seen your program before, but I like a lot of things about it!

Being able to buy/sell stocks during the simulation has been on my mind, but I never knew how to properly implement it. I also like that you allowed the player to save and load games!

I'm still looking into dividends - among a load of other things, so it's cool to see a similar project.

Let me know if you have any suggestions!
I like how this is coming along. Can't wait to see it finished. Smile
