6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
baKno Games has announced the release of PunkTrader 1.0, a stock trading game that tests gamers' trading skills using real historical stock market price movements. PunkTrader randomly picks one of the 20 most actively traded stocks and takes the player to 9:30 am Wall-Street time at the beginning of a random trading day within the last 5 years, challenging them to make the most of their trades.
Once the game starts, the gamer battles against the price movements of the stock by buying and selling shares at will, and the sole objective is to make a profit. To do that, the gamer needs to use a keen predictive trader eye, and also a few assisting indicators included in the game such as moving averages, exponential averages, industry averages and trade volume.A full-featured demo version is available for download from the baKno website. Single seat licenses are priced at $19.95 (USD). There is also a promotional two-seat license available for $29.95 (USD).
Gamers can choose between three different game modes: Quick Play, Training and Career. In Career mode, PunkTrader saves the accumulated profit or loss at baKno's servers, allowing the gamer to keep track of his/her trading performance, and compete for the wealthier position at the leader-board.
