The object of Inside Trader is "to make millions of dollars without being apprehended by the [SEC]." The player starts with $30,000 and makes money playing the fictional stock market, keeping an eye on current events via "the wire service." It is entirely possible to play the game without using any inside information. (But what's the fun in that?)
The commands are very simple. The player either buys or sells stock, pays for information, gets reports, and, if caught, cooperates with the SEC or destroys evidence. Cooperating means an automatic fine, but he can continue playing. If he does nothing, there's a small chance they'll drop the charges, but if they don't he'll pay a higher fine. If he destroys evidence, there's a slight better chance of getting off scott-free, but getting caught means jail time and the end of the game.
This is an unusual stockmarket-game with some little extras. You have to make lots and lots of money on the stockmarket. To do this you buy and sell stocks. But now the fun begins. You also can pay for information or get reports from inside =) So you know what to buy ;) But beware of the SEC! If they find out you might get in some trouble.
This is a great (and perhaps the only) stock market sim that lets you be an inside trader trying to make piles of cash while avoiding detection from the SEC. Aside from the usual buy/sell functions, running ticker tape and newswire, you now have an option to pay the informant, destroy evidence, or co-operate with the authorities. A fun and reasonably realistic game that's a great way to release that mean streak in all traders ;)
