Read both the new and old rules. Could I say buy shares of stock in another comoany and then sell them in the same round? Reading the rules seems to say yes unless I am missing somthing. What would be the good and bad then of doing this to use the stock market as a weapn to tank other companies
In fact, you can buy a share in a company and then sell shares in the same company in the same action during a stock round. Whether this is reasonable or not depends on the situation. In an e-mail game we are just playing this actually happened just now because two players wanted each others' companys to be opened in the same stock round and none of them had enough money to open his respective company by himself (even didn't want to open his respective company in this particular stock round).
