Share Price Movement
Down one row for each share sold into the pool, unless price protected by the company president. If the token is on the ledge it does not move down unless two shares are sold. If the token is further above the ledge, enough shares must be sold to push it two spaces below the ledge or it stops on the ledge.
Up one row if all shares are owned by players or the company at the end of a stock round. If the token is on the top row, move it down one row and right one column instead. If the token is in the $400 space it does not move.
Right one column when a company pays a full dividend. If moving right would move through the ledge, or at the right-hand end of a row, move up instead.
Left one column when a company does not pay a dividend. Move through the ledge if required. Move down if at the left-hand end of a row.
Note: The stated effects of the ledge on right and left movement of tokens differs from that in the rule book. The effects listed here match the movement arrows printed on the stock market and have been confirmed as correct with Mayfair Games. Basically, you only enter the lower stock market area by dropping through the ledge. You can move to the upper stock market area by moving up or left without any penalty.
