Player/team share quantities owned change based on one factor. The player's/team's performance in games, relative to their fantasy projections for that game. If a player/team beats their projected fantasy score, the quantity of shares in that player/team that the user owns will rise. If a player/team misses their projected fantasy score, the share quantity owned will fall.  

Player/team share prices rise and fall based on "supply and demand".  The more shares in a player/team that are purchased on the SportsTrade platform, the higher the player's/team's value rises  The more shares that are sold, the lower the player's/team's share value goes.  Specifically, for every $1000 in shares that are purchased on the platform, share values will increase by 1%.  For every $1000 in shares that are sold on the platform, share values will decrease by 1%.

Team's share prices move the same way that individual player prices do.  For every $1000 in team shares that are purchased on the platform, the share price increases by 1%.  For every $1000 in team shares that are sold on the platform, the share price decreases by 1%. 

Team share quantities owned change based on the cumulative performance of all offensive players on the team.  Defensive players are not included in the calculations.  If the total fantasy points scored by all offensive team members exceeds the cumulative fantasy points projected for those team members, the share quantity owned increases by the percentage difference.  Likewise, If the total fantasy points scored by all offensive team members falls short of the cumulative fantasy points projected for those team members, the share quantity owned decreases by the percentage difference.
