Site Updates and New Stocks

Lately people have been inquiring as to what the status of RealityMarkets.com is and so I thought it would be best if I update everyone here. The short answer is RealityMarkets.com isn't going anywhere and will shortly be getting a pretty significant internal update that is already being tested.

The longer answer is that RealityMarkets.com has grown to a point where the systemsas it was originally designed is longer working properly. Witness the accounts with trillions of dollars and stock prices in the thousands of dollars. As a result of the unrealistic prices, share volumes and most importantly, the predictions, RealityMarkets.com will be under going a stock reset as well as an account reset to coincide with the new system coming online.

There will also be some changes to how stock prices move with the update and I will expand on that as we get closer to the new system rollout.

New Stocks And System Update Imminent

The new system should be uploaded within the next 24 hours and following that the new stocks will be added. Currently there are 20 new stocks loaded and ready to be turned on. There should be another larger batch coming a day or so after that.

Site Updates and New Stocks

Starting on Friday, December 14 there is a new trading system in place as well as other updates to RealityMarkets.com.  Some of the changes include:

1. Stocks now will follow a more predictable range, 0 - 100.
2. Stock prices now directly reflect prediction; i.e. $67.5 Remars = 67.5% Probability.
3. Stocks payout at 100 if they happen, 0 if they don't.
4. Improved trade screen.
5. Improved charts.
6. Better Indexes
7. New stocks with more on the way!

As a result of these significant changes, the impact those changes will have on the prices, and the absurd amounts some stocks and players have achieved, we will be resetting everyone's portfolios back to $2,000,000 Remars on Sunday, December 16 after everyone has had some time to play with the new system. While we realize some people will be upset with this decision, we feel it will be best for everyone in the long run and will lead to a more enjoyable game.
