what happens to the stock that person holds.
will it have any effect on the price when it's released/docked?
p.s. Q5 "zeroed" out on me 3 times in a row on IPO. got to the confirm page, clicked confirm, and sent me back to the trade page with all zeros where real numbers should be.
FUSh seemed to go right through,

If there is an effect, we would release the shares back into the market gradually to ease the effect. In the past, when we've made such corrections, it didn't shift the market noticeably.
In other words, we manipulate it so that the overall market isn't punished.

Thanks, we'll see what I can do in the next 36 hours or so, but it looks like being IPO king can only get you so far.

That is your account balance.
Perhaps you were not aware, but you cannot use multiple accounts to trade on CSX (see Edmunds registration rules and CSX Help/FAQs). We've seen some stock manipulation via multiple accounts in the past, and if we discover we dock players down to their original CSX $1M.
We have to do this in the interest of fairness for all the players.

If the market would not been so volatile becoz of "someone who made 65M using multiple accounts" you could have been in race for the prize. Better luck next time.. And for those who are curious, I will be returning for the month of August, but still taking my planned vacation as well. let's see if I can win even after missing an IPO.

I think when someone is caught cheating they should be given the option of dumping all their wealth back to the market before months end. If they don't make it down to 1 mil, dock the balance. At a minimum, it would create some entertaining chaos and some folks could win the lottery
