No fight needed. The prcing chart if you click the Lexus IF-F stock indicates that the stock never traded below $40.00. You may be talking about the inverse amount that showed when you shorted. That would be a correct number. According to the chart that tracks the stock price, the stock very dipped below $44.60.

The pricing chart does not reflect short term changes. That is, if the stock cost $30 for but a few seconds - the graph will not reflect it.

True, but the pricing chart does indicate that the stock went up to $60-something dollars, where I shorted it. Thus it dropped like a lead balloon to the $49-something that I said it was at when I was trying to sell it. I saw the stock price at the $60-something dollars amount and verified it was the expected share price before I shorted it. I double check every transaction. I can see a slight different in expected and transaction price but if there is a $30-something dollar swing between the two, we are getting kind of ridiculous. A fail safe would have to be developed as the transaction price would be high, the expected share price would be different, and the actual price it is traded at would again be different. You'd never be able to know at what price you are trading at.
it would be also very coincidental that my share price number would be so close to the peak price of $65.14 around the same exact time that I am talking about. If I verified the transaction amount, isn't much more likely that the system did not invert the value, than it is that these was a split second drop to $30-something dollars that is not show on the chart and was not shown in the expected transaction price per share value?

Did you by chance sell some shares and short some shares all in the same transaction? If so, the transaction price listed in your transaction log will not be accurate.

Man, I wish. At least then I could understand. I didn't have any position in the Lexus IS-F until that. When I saw it as like the fifth highest on the pricing chart, that's when I jumped because it is not a volume vehicle.

I haven't been able to confirm this. I'll have to do some more testing.

Well I have gotten caught in my fair share of stock swings when someone is manipulating the price in big chunks. I would not discount the possibility that it was just a matter of a couple huge, fast trades taking place in succession.

Keep me updated. I absolutely love the game by the way. I hope this gets resolved. I am in the running for the IPOD. This is my month!

We'll take a look at the history and see what could have happened.
