micro, but unfortunately you lose it all when you switch the power
You are dealing in four commodities: GOLD, TIN, ZINC and
LEAD. If you buy and sell at the right time, you can make your
fortune, but watch out for takeovers or you could lose your shirt.
On each turn your portfolio, profit and loss account, and the
market trends are displayed in colour in MODE 7, and you can

for the real thing!
