The YoWorld Stock Market!

Postby Viking Jess » Thu Aug 06, 2015 4:21 pm

Hey YoFans!

The brand new YoWorld Stock Market is now available. Keep reading for more information on how to use it!

Head to the Bank or click the Stocks tab:
Image

The Stock Market looks like this:
Image

The ticker shows each company's change from the last 24 hours.

Use the Market tab to see all available stocks, and the Portfolio tab to see what you own.
Image


The Market tab
The Market tab shows you all of the available stocks. From this tab, you can see a stock's current value, and how how much it's changed in the last 6 hours. Click on any heading (ID, Business, Current Value, Change, Change %) to sort stocks by that heading!
Image

Click a stock to find more details about it! You'll be able to see a handy graph with its historical values to help you choose which stocks you want to buy. Check on a company's last hour, 6 hours, 1 day, 5 days. or 1 month (once they've been around long enough) to make better investments!
Image

The Portfolio tab
The Portfolio tab is similar to the Market tab, but it only includes stocks that you already own. You can own up to 100 shares of each stock at a time. It will also show you the current profit that you would make if you sold your stocks right then.
Image

But remember! There is 0.25% transaction fee per sale of shares (a minimum of 10 YoCoins). The "Total Value" column is before the fee, but the "Total Earn" value (next to the Sell button) is after the fee. Make sure that Total Earn is more than you paid for your shares to profit!



The idea is to buy shares when the value is low, then sell when the value is high! Any stocks you buy come with a risk, because stocks can lose value too... Decide how much you want to risk, and you could make lots of YoCoins if you're a savvy investor!

Jess, i'm a tad confused by the 0.25%. So, it's 0.25% PER stock? How could you possibly lose money that way?

There is 0.25% transaction fee per sale of shares (a minimum of 10 YoCoins), so make sure your profit will work out to more than that or you'll lose money!

So.... Schrodinger's Financial I have 100 stocks. I bought them all at different times. BUT I always bought them when the stock was in the negative. Now the stock is negative .30 and MY portfolio is negative 3.14. I don't understand why I keep going down...

There is 0.25% transaction fee per sale of shares (a minimum of 10 YoCoins), so make sure your profit will work out to more than that or you'll lose money!


The fee applies to any sale of shares, and it's calculated at 0.0025 times the total value of the shares you're selling (or 10 YoCoins). If the value went up by less than that, then you could potentially lose YoCoins because of the fee.

In practice, just make sure the "Total Earn" when you're selling your shares is more than the "Total Paid" to make a profit! :)

Ok all, I did some research and I found a little bit of info that might help. Of course since this is not a real stock market it won't be as reliable but I found some things that might hold true in "Our Yo Stock World" minus the stuff that was irrelevant like buyers and stock charts because as Jess says it's just a program and us buying has no relevance on the stock. Anywho. I'm going to try what it suggests Good Luck all! :rose:

Know when to buy.
1.Buying at the right time is essential to successful investing.
2.Don't buy everything at once. If the market takes a downturn right after you buy, you could lose most of your investment. Instead, spread out your initial investment over several months to minimize the risk each time you buy.
3.Check to see if the stock trend is rising. This means that the price has been increasing steadily. Look for stocks that are increasing but not necessarily rapidly. Stocks will only go so high, so if a price is climbing rapidly, there's a good chance that it will level off or drop soon.
4.Find the moving average of the stock. The moving average is the average price of a stock over time. Ideally this average would be increasing and the listed price would be above this average.
Avoid volatile stocks. If the price jumps too much, and there are a lot of spikes in the chart, the stock is probably too unstable to safely invest in.

Ok this might sound completely stupid but I'm so confused; I know you're supposed to buy stocks low and sell high, so that's what I did. For instance, I bought a stock at 3000 coins, and the little green thing was in the plus and said it went UP, yet if I were to sell it it'd only give me 2850....so what's the point if when I'm supposed to make money I'm not? is this maybe a glitch or something? :eh:

wait a second..I just saw they charge you a fee..is that the reason I'm actually losing on a profitable stock?! I think I'm going to retire in the yo-stock market from now on :dizzy:
