Once the game starts, the gamer battles against the price movements of the stock by buying and selling shares at will, and the sole objective is to make a profit. To do that, the gamer needs to use a keen predictive trader eye, and also a few assisting indicators included in the game such as moving averages, exponential averages, industry averages and trade volume.
PunkTrader is available for Mac OS X as well as Windows. Gamers can choose between three different game modes: Quick Play, Training and Career. In Career mode, PunkTrader saves the accumulated profit or loss at baKno's servers, allowing the gamer to keep track of his/her trading performance, and compete for the wealthier position at the leader-board.
Pricing and Availability:
A full-featured demo version is available for download from the baKno website. Single seat licenses are priced at $19.95 (USD). There is also a promotional two-seat license available for $29.95 (USD).
