OMG dude - I am sure the coder of this will be racing in here to let you know when/if it is updated for vBulletin 4.

Posting every couple days isn't going to be doing anything.

Finally, anybody makes it work in 4.x?

Also, it will be great if you can sell before buying, like in real.

To get rid of the divide by zero errors on the current vbtrade application:
open vbtrade.php

on line 112 find

and replace with:

Everything else seems to work, make a backup of the original file just in case.
Wow! I just want to thank you, I recently came back to check this out, and I guess I missed this. It works! Thanks so much!
