In addition to trading, the Trading Floor brings a lot social aspects to the game such as building private exchanges, which can be only joined by your friends and expressing like-ability for a company, which determines a Buzz for the company. Also, the members can view activities for other players in a game, view their gain/loss from the trading, view ranking of the players in terms of gain/loss and comment on their trades. At the end of a game, the top players for each game are awarded badges, which are permanently visible from their profile.
Each day, a new Trading Floor game is started for each exchange, where member players trade against other member players. When a player joins the game, he/she receives $10,000 in virtual cash and portfolio with stocks and options of ten companies. The players then post bids to sell or buy companies on the Trading Floor. Upon each bid for buy or sell and upon acceptance of the bid, a new quote value for the company is generated.
In addition to buying and selling stocks/options, the players can express like-ability for a company, which determines the buzz quote for that company. The more players like a company, the higher the buzz quote value that company would have. Unlike trading stocks/options, which are limited to a single exchange, the buzz quote is calculated across all exchanges. The buzz quote is also used by a BOT trader, which buys companies with high buzz-quote value from the players, thus making money for the players. The Trading Floor game keeps track of capital gain for each player based on the profit he/she makes on trading and assigns special badges to the top players.
The Trading Floor game comes with over 20,000 companies that can be easily searched and looked up for the quote and news. Also, it shows public companies close to the user's location that can be then looked up for the quote or traded. In nutshell, the Trading Floor is a fun game to learn how the stock market works and have fun with your friends.
