What is an "Exchange"?

When you think of the word "Exchange", picture a place that allows people to buy and sell things. In the case of the stock market, an exchange allows you to buy and sell securities. Securities, more commonly known as stocks and bonds, are traded every day, all over the world with goal of making money. In this case, its stocks and bonds in Mel Gibson rather than precious metals or Japanese Yen.

What is "trading"?

Trading is the act of buying or selling a particular item on the Exchange. For example, if you are interested in buying Vanessa Hudgens because you think she will be the next big thing, you place a trade to buy her StarBond at a given price. However, if you hated High School Musical 3: Senior Year or you think she's overrated, you can short her StarBond, effectively allowing you to profit by any downward movement in her price. The act of trading is completed when buyers and sellers are brought together in the marketplace.

What are "Hollywood Dollars"?

Hollywood Dollars are the official currency of the Hollywood Stock Exchange. When you join the Hollywood Stock Exchange, you are given two million Hollywood Dollars for the Movie Market. For MovieStocks, one Hollywood Dollar equals one million U.S. Dollar at the box office. Your job is to use the money to the best of your abilities on the Exchange and profit from it. There are hundreds of traders on HSX that have taken their initial stake and turned them into a billion Hollywood Dollars! That has given them the chance to become leaders in the HSX community. If you play your dollars wisely, you too can become the next HSX mogul.
