The Tangerine Exchange is a menu to the right of the Main Page, where stocks in various tangerine-related items can be bought and sold. At the Tangerine Exchange, stocks in an item are bought using either 50% or 100% of one's tangerines. These stocks can later be sold, providing either a gain or a loss in tangerines. To see whether a gain or a loss will be made, look at the number next to the value of the stock. This number displays the change in value of the stock from the time it was bought to the current value. If this number is positive, then a gain can be made from selling the stock (number*amount of stock).
The Insider Trading perk provides a plus and minus sign next to stocks to indicate the trend. It does not predict the immediate next number, just how the stock is doing in general.

Buying stocks at lower values and selling them at higher values is the general strategy for using the Tangerine Exchange. The Tangerine Exchange alto falls in price, and stocks with a price of less than 50 are more likely to increase in price.
- A common strategy is to buy whenever stocks drop below 30 and sell whenever stocks go above 70, as the trend usually changes near these values.
- Keep in mind that the maximum price for all 5 commodities is 100.
- The trend almost never changes between 40-60.
- Stocks will never change from positive to negative over a 5-10 tangerine change.
- Pay attention to whether each stock is trending up or down. If the stock you own is trending up, while a cheaper stock is trending down, you want to wait for the cheaper stock to bottom out before you buy it.
- Until you have Insider Trading perks, you won't know for sure when a stock has bottomed out until it starts trending upward. Ideally, you'll correctly guess where the bottom is and buy then. It's okay to miss it, though; as long as you're buying stock that's cheap and rising, you'll be making profit.
- The five stocks available for purchase at the Tangerine Exchange are: Tangerine Creams, Tangerine Figurines, Tangerine Canteens, Tangerine Cookies, and Max Headroom.
