WALL STREET RAIDER (for Windows XP, Vista, Win 7 & 8) is now played by (registered) users in over 95 countries, ranging from Sharjah to Vietnam to Cyprus to Paraguay to Greenland to Namibia to Barbados to Slovenia to the Sultanate of Brunei and beyond. It is widely recognized as the ultimate in sophisticated financial simulations, a corporate takeover and stock market game and simulation, in which players strive to build their corporate empires by fair means or foul, all the while trying to stay one step ahead of the SEC, IRS, Justice Department, EPA, Congress, powerful unions, corrupt governments, and no end of ruthless competitors -- not to mention various manmade and natural calamaties and economic disasters.
NOTE TO MAC AND iPAD USERS: Click here for information about running Wall Street Raider on a Mac or iPad.
In this highly realistic simulation, 1 to 5 players (including the computer, if you choose) compete to amass fortunes by investing in, or taking over and managing, any of up to 1590 companies in 70 industry groups.  Once you acquire control of a company, you and your company will use all the tricks of the trade of real Wall Street corporate raiders ("Wolves of Wall Street") to expand your empire and net worth, including:
  • trading or investing in stocks and Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF's)
  • trading or investing in corporate and government bonds
  • gaining voting control of companies, in order to run them (and try to manipulate their earnings and stock price)
  • industry domination and monopolization, by increasing your company's (or companies') market share in a particular industry
  • increasing capital spending to take advantage of lucrative rates of return on capital in your industry, as well as to increase or maintain market share; or decreasing or eliminating such spending to increase cash flow, in order to diversify or pay down debt
  • setting bank lending policies, such as restricting lending to competitors, for any banks you control
  • options trading, for speculation or to hedge stock positions
  • short selling of stocks, options, and commodity or stock index futures
  • speculating in or hedging with commodity futures and stock index futures
  • trading in physical commodities (oil, gold, silver, wheat, corn)
  • speculating in ultra-high-risk interest rate swaps, by creating custom-made derivatives contracts (that are bets on the future direction of various interest rates)
  • having banks or insurance companies you control invest (speculate) in high-yield junk bonds or risky "subprime" mortgage securities
  • startups/IPOs
  • private placement stock offerings to raise "outside" private money or from within your corporate empire
  • cash or stock tender offers for corporate takeovers, or cash tender offers for LBO's
  • "greenmail" stock buybacks to get rid of hostile or unwanted minor shareholders in your companies
  • stock-for-stock mergers to diversify or to gobble up competitors and increase industry dominance
  • LBO's (leveraged buy-outs)
  • "white knight" defenses to protect your control of a company by bringing in "neutral" corporate shareholders
  • buying up distressed debt (bonds) of companies in financial trouble
  • launching antitrust lawsuits and other litigation to harass financially vulnerable competitors, or sometimes win large judgments or settlements
  • mass layoffs and restucturing of companies to increase efficiency and profitability
  • spin-offs or liquidations of subsidiaries, tax-free or otherwise
  • excessive salaries and lavish executive stock options, provided by a company you control, if you are elected as its CEO, plus possible large performance bonuses for increasing earnings
  • increasing dividends of companies you own (or cutting their dividends, to conserve cash)
  • firing management
  • asset downsizing
  • recapitalizations
  • tax avoidance strategies to avoid income taxes and various taxes on capital
  • asset-stripping liquidations
  • manipulating earnings by increasing/decreasing spending on R&D or marketing
  • manipulating earnings by using "hidden" accounting reserves
  • earning management fees from Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF's), for securities brokers or insurance companies you control
  • using any and all methods to get the stock price up, in a company you control, including sometimes engaging in "unethical" (but risky) actions, and
  • delegating most management decisions in your corporate empire, Warren Buffett-style, by turning on the new "auto-pilot" feature in recent versions, once you have acquired control of too many companies to effectively micro-manage them all, while still making the major decisions on choices like which companies to buy or sell or merge, or which industries to enter or exit
... and much more, all in the quest for the Almighty Dollar. The individual player can engage in risky (but sometimes lucrative) activities for his or her own account, such as short selling of stocks, and players or companies can engage in buying and shorting put and call options and commodity futures on crude oil, gold, silver, wheat, and corn, or can gamble with massive leverage on interest rate swaps (derivatives contracts). Although the U.S. dollar is the default, players also are able to instantly configure the simulation for any one of 22 other currencies, before starting a new game.
ETHICS? (ON WALL STREET?)
And, of course, you'll have ample "ethical choices" thrust upon you from time to time, where you will have to choose between playing ethically, or (possibly) winding up in serious legal or financial trouble if you decide to "Go for the gold," rather than "do the right thing." Recent versions even include a "Cheat Menu" that lets you obtain "insider information" on upcoming mergers or major changes in a company's fortunes (good or bad), which you can greatly profit from. Of course, there's always a chance your informant may turn "stool pigeon" and you may thus be prosecuted for such illegal "insider trading...."
TRADING ENVIRONMENT AND PLATFORM:
All your investment research and financial wheeling and dealing occur against the backdrop of a constantly shifting economic and political environment in which you and all the companies and industries in Wall Street Raider must operate and try to cope. The main screen is your Trading Desk, on which you can always see a nonstop "live" stock ticker tape, a scrolling financial news tape, flickering, constantly updating stock prices on your "streaming quotes" list of up to 15 stocks, as well as frequently changing spot prices for each of 5 commodities and the (tradeable) Stock Index, plus the current GDP growth rate of the economy and various interest rates (long- and short-term government bond yields and the Prime Rate). One section of the Trading Desk also shows your personal financial balance sheet, so you can see your personal net worth and available bank line of credit (if any) fluctuating second by second.

DECISION-MAKING:
Speedy decision-making is of the essence, and sweaty palms are a certainty, as you try to cope with and anticipate changing markets, and keep your company's earnings on an upward track -- or at least keep yourself out of Bankruptcy Court! You also have to deal with cash flow issues and try to keep powerful competitors from squeezing your company's profitability or seizing control of your company -- unless the price is right, of course!
