His question is perfectly clear, no clarification required…
As for why this happens, I don’t know. All I can guess at is that another sale had already taken place, pushing the value up temporarily. I believe the system calculates the 10% based on company value divided by amount of stocks though, so you’d have to try with a lower value. Waiting 24 hours should reset the price to what it should be, after which you can try again.
I did not clarify his question, I merely repeated it. We would not want 2 day old questions to remain unanswered, would we
But your answer sounds plausible… Once per day the value of shares is indeed recalculated and set to <total value of the company> divided by <total number of shares>. Perhaps the game does not allow to push the price up by more than 10% per day.
