This simulation gives you a chance to make money with your micro, but unfortunately you lose it all when you switch the power off!

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 choose to buy or sell shares. After a few games you may feel ready for the real thing!
