As a little experiment, I invested all of Franklin's money on the LCN in one company: Maze Bank. I then sent him to sleep over and over for a week (game time), checking his portfolio every time he woke up to see how the stock was doing. What I saw baffled me.
The stock fluctuated 1 or 2% for the whole week. I bought it at around $14.60 and it stayed within roughly a dollar of that figure the entire week.
Firstly, the graph apparently reflects this past week, but it seems to say that the stock spent time at $70 a share, and was now resting at $56. In fact, according to the graph, it had only once dipped below $26 the entire week... Nowhere near the $14.60 figure I usually saw.
How am I reading the graph wrong?
On the right-hand side, the "Stock Information" seemed equally confusing. The "High" and "Low" seem to refer to the highest and lowest the stock had EVER been. (It certainly didn't reflect the week's fluctuations.)
"Last" (and thus "Change"/"% Change") didn't seem to reflect any price I saw over the period of a week, either. (Does anyone know what time frame the "Last" figure comes from?)
And that's only the LCN. Does the BAWSAQ have more accurate graphs/figures?
On the whole, all these graphs and figures seemed very confusing. Can anyone help make sense of them?
