@ColdKuma it will not turn into a Ponzi scheme due to the fact that they are actually gaining money from the trades. Ponzi schemes are based around a failing business that uses investors money to prop up the company as it hemorrhages money.

The method they are using is market manipulation which is illegal in the real world due to the long term effects it has on the company, investors, and markets. Although it is actually very close to a Ponzi scheme because you are still making a stock out to be worth more than it actually is and taking advantage of the fluctuations in the market, it is just that the person in question does not own the company they are boosting, and they don't have to deal with the consequences after the fact when the stock price collapses afterwards. There are situations where it can help the company as long as the people who invest keep their investment and few people divest, but usually the people doing the scheme sell a large amount of stock they purchased thus dumping a large supply of stock on the market causing the stock price to drop dramatically leading to a selling frenzy.

Yeah, maybe add an "=" equal sign, or put the negative profit on the next line.

@PR/N
If the profit percent was a positive number, it'd mean they gained, because profit is amount of gains after subtracting losses. If you read it in the way you were thinking, it'd be like this: 122%

if it's to denote a negative number it might be smart to make sure there isn't a space between the dash and number.

The last bit with the profits shown had me confused a bit, I thought they earned 22% from their investments because it looked like the "-" was a dash not a negative until i saw the note.
