    In this section I will be going through and explaining the stock market, trading and the resources.

    First basic thing you need to know is that there are 6 different resources [From left to right]; Grain, Goods, Man Power, Metal [usually most known as iron], Oil and finally, Rare materials. Each resource has its own purpose all of which are produced and consumed step-less all the time and only certain provinces are able to produce resources.
    Next to this, each province produces tax revenue in pound, which the amount of income [just like resources] can vary depending on the morale of your provinces and whether they have upgrades[see Provinces and Buildings section of the manual for more information on upgrades]. *Production and consumption values are updated once per day [day change].

    Grain: This is what is used for troops and citizens, the higher your population and unit count, the higher the consumption of grain will be. Grain is also used for some buildings such as barracks which use grain however if the barracks are disabled, they stop consuming most of the grain.

    Goods: This is mainly a building material but is also consumed by the population of citizens.

    Man Power: This is what you need to be able to recruit/build anything in the infantry section of unit construction. Man power also varies on the land you have as each province creates man power which can improve with higher morale, you can also increase man power with barracks but only enabled barracks will increase the man power production and the production and consumption is only updated every day change.

    Metal: Just like goods, this is also a material used for building main upgrades/buildings and currently there is nothing that will consume metal.

    Oil: This is used for most type of mechanic units such as tanks and planes and with those units the consumption for oil rises as well as little oil consumption for certain upgrades.

    Rare materials: This resource is mainly used for researching and for nuclear units/weapons. Nuclear reactor's are the only upgrade to consume rare materials but it can be disabled.

    Money/cash: Naturally, you use money for everything you build and is increased by land, morale and upgrades. Spies are the only thing to consume money which is only taken at day change.

    Shortages of any resource may lead to morale loss and even units effectiveness may be affected when they go into battle.

    Stock Market:

    The stock market is the place to go if you want to buy or sell resources without trading directly to another player via the diplomacy tab.
    The stock market is located just below the resource bar and once clicked, a drop down will appear.

    Once the drop down has appeared, you will see the first standard view when opening the stock market, displaying the Grain and Goods offers currently in the market, however there may not necessarily always be offers there to buy.

    As you can see at the top, there are 3 headings to choose from: Top offers, All offers and my trades. The titles are self explanatory but I will explain none the less.
    -Top offers will display the most cheapest/top offers of the resource [see image above], the lower the rate at which you buy, the better the offer e.g if you buy 1,000 tonnes of grain at a rate of " @ 3" you will 3 times the amount meaning you would pay 3,000 cash for the grain.
    -All offers will display all of the offers currently in the stock market, you can use the resource icons to change between which resource offers in the market you wish to see.

    My trades will simply display any offers you currently have put on the market for other users or even AI to buy and at the rate it is on the market for and how much cash/money you would make from the offer.

    If you are at war with another nation or have trade embargo, you will not be able to buy their offers on the market and vise-versa, instead you will see a line through the offer showing you cannot buy this offer - see image below.

    To put your own offers on the market, you need only press "Add Sell Offer" from there you can choose the resource you wish to sell and at what rate.
    If you wish to put a buy offer on the market, which will give someone wanting to sell a resource the option to sell that resource directly via your offer , or if an offer is put on the market with the same resource and rate, the offer will automatically be bought by yourself and you will receive the resource while the seller will receive the money/cash.

    The prices variegate according to the actually available quantity of the market and the needed quantity. A resource everyone needs at the beginning, like metal for industrial complex's, is rarely available and caused of this very expensive. Later, when the requirement is met, the prices will drop. Demand determines supply.
