Comex the Game by William T. Taylor

This software package from the Commodity Exchange, Inc. (COMEX) is a futures options trading
simulation game. The intent is to provide real-life like data, including futures prices for the COMEX
Gold and Silver contracts, as well as news items that could affect these prices. Your job as the
participant, is to assimilate all of the information, formulate a strategy and then take one of several
positions in the market.
Most of the documentation for this game consists of marketing blurbs from COMEX. This includes
brochures on gold and silver futures and options, and a book entitled COMEX Precious Metals Options:
Strategies for the Investor. This booklet explains the use of options and demonstrates the various
strategies to use in different market conditions. Each strategy is shown with an accompanying graph
illustrating the risk that is taken. I found this to be very helpful in formulating my trading strategies
during the course of the game.
