Hey guys,

I haven't messed with the stocks much preferring to just go for large interest sums by saving up. I'm considering trying them again, start small and see what happens.

But I was curious if stocks are popular among others. Does anyone keep a good handle on them or use them for side income?

When I first started the game and the economy on Eternal was still in good shape, I used to buy stocks. However, I ended up loosing upwards of $200k in one night, and I haven't bought stocks since. For the past month, at least, the stocks have remained the same. They're low but steady, so there's not much risk. Personally, I don't think you could make enough money with the stocks to rely on it as a side income. 

I don't place LC often, so I don't know if the stock market is the same as it is on Eternal. I would assume it's not.

You can only ever own 250 stock shares, so even if values went up to 10k each, which is rare in and of itself, the most you could make is 2.5m - not much with the current economy. I've seen prices crash from 8k to under 1k in two days, so I'd say there's no point to investing in them unless you can be online every day and keep monitoring price rise/drop.

Come poke me anywhere you can find me if you have HI/EL questions! <3
