When regarding stocks, and not cash, is wealth based on the purchase price or sale price of the stock?

Stocks are only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. So in this case, wealth will be determined by your dollar amount remaining and the price the market will pay for your remaining stocks

To be clear though, market purchase price will be run 1 additonal time based on our last day of sales. So final wealth will not be determined based on THESE (day 10) numbers.

I'll settle for third.

I probably could've given Panther a closer game, except the fact that 1) I made some bad decisions early on, and 2) Then I misread the graph.

 

EDIT: At least I made a profit!

Lets go again! I feel theres potential beyond just buying and selling normally...in the early days, I thought of floating derivatives and such... If the moderator offers to enforces agreements between parties (to allow shorting and such), this could turn deviously entertaining!
