I ALMOST forgot to add!
There is no restriction on "insider" buying company stock in the "real world." The invisible hand will adjust prices accordingly to supply & demand.
Are you even FINRA registered? Have you taken your Series exams? You should know laws do NOT restrict internal employees from buying/selling shares, only the affiliated defined as 10% or more shareholders.
What you speak of is not insider trading.<br /><br />If a developer manipulates an item to drop for him this is an entirely different crime altogether.<br /><br />And how would we even know ?
It is called internal policy, monitoring and control.
I don't think ANY of you worked in a corporate setting. Trying doing funny things on a corporate computer, IT and Security will escort you out of the building before you can blink an eye let alone rewriting codes.
This is a hilarious thread.
I like you.
You don't even need a background in finance, or markets in general to understand that a few people aren't going to be able to effectively influence the entire market, ran by and dictated by millions of others. Oh no, 5 people might jack the price of Crimson Runes up a couple bucks for a day or two while everyone else catches up. Alert the presses.
The cute thing, is you think that Blizzard doesn't announce such changes prior to the game going live. If they were buffing/nerfing an item to such a degree that would plummet, or drive the market in a certain way... they'll inform the community. It's almost as if you think Blizzard is completely oblivious to the fact that we're dealing with real money here.
This is disregarding the fact that in the end it doesn't matter anyway. I'd only be concerned if there was actually an initial investment, which there isn't unless you think your time is worth something (it's not).

and the punishments when cought will be harsh..if the white house and other branches of government protected their inside information like bliz does .. you would never hear the term on the new .. an unnamed sourse in the white house.
quite certain bliz will have a watchdog policy on anyone who could benifit.. or even a not allowed to cash out policy ..
Really? There have plenty of threads brought up with way worse concerns than this one. It seems like all you do is troll each thread you post in.
