Hi !

I havenŽt really occupied myself a lot with shares.. so could any "share-expert" inform me about this thing ?
i know i have to buy them, i know iŽll get a dividend paid...
but how exactly does it work and what are the risks ?

i would like to invest about 5bil in shares, so would that really pay and wht could i get per month ? is there a better way to invest this money ?

Choose an investment that you trust.

The only type of share investment that is "safe" within game mechanics is one that consists of a corporation who owns blueprints that are locked down and where the public owns enough shares to prevent malicious theft.

However, a relatively safe investment can also exist in the case that you trust the person with the money.

I highly recommend EMFI.

Trading shares is something needing abolute trust.
Shares don't work automagically. The CEO has to hand out corp money for the dividend.
There is no stockmarket.

What, and an official stockmarket would work perfectly ingame? LaughingLaughingLaughing

I wouldn't be surprised if an "official" stockmarket would work worse.... Wink

But more on topic, yes it works perfectly in the in-game browser. If you expect it to be riskless, you're a fool: if there was no risk there would be no profit.

Hmm... I havent yet dared to put any money into shares since its so trustbased. But this "recogniced third party" system got my interest. But I couldnt find a good description on how the system works. From the looks of it, the info page there is more geared to the corporations selling thier shares.

Anyone care to explain? ugh

A trades with B, handing out extra cash to C for handing over (or running with) cash and shares.

I'm curious about stocks also my current thought of how it works is this.

You give a corporation X amount of cash. They use this cash to purchase minerlas needed for manfacturing. With the profits they make selling the manufactered good they hand out cash to each person that invested in the corporation. You need absolute trust because the corporation is not obligated by game mechanics to give you any money. Is this correct?

At the risk of incurring the wrath of one of the 23 (and possibly the other 22)...

It is probably a decent goal to have riskless (or close to it) execution of the transactions.

Yes, the investment itself should not be riskless (in that case your statement is absolutely correct), but given that there seems to be a fair amount of risk in execution (you must trust the broker 100%) it is probably ******ing the growth in the finanical markets in eve.

Currently you must 1) earn a return to pay you for the risk of the underlying investment and 2) earn a return to pay you for the underlying risk of having someone else execute for you who is not regulated in any real way.

A bigger more liquid market would likely result from a more transparent/lower risk trading mechanism. It is a good goal that will probably never be reached. For now vet your broker extensively... They can walk away with your assets as easily as the CEO of whomever you are investing in.
