I cannot claim to be 100% sure, but I believe that Investment Funds that are supposedly being manually managed are automatically buying new shares. I cite the following observances:

1. I turned off automatic buying/selling of shares for the investment fund in my country of Scarlet Citadel on Golden Rainbow. I have been working to eliminate Share Holding in undesired corporation types. I haven't exactly been monitoring the list of corporations, but I believe to be seeing new corporations pop up on the list of corporations I have shares in.
2. All the public corporations I own in the enterprise of Thus Spoke Scarlet on GR are attempting to gain 100% control. However, there are shareholders (specifically investment funds run by certain inactive players) that do not sell, even when the corporation reaches a P/E ratio of 998.9 (which I have intentionally tanked several times) and I am attempting to purchase the shares. This would suggest that the investment funds are not set to automatically sell, but are automatically buying shares as the players were more than likely inactive at the time of share purchase.

Once again, I cannot prove anything, but I'm 90% sure that the case is that the investments funds are automatically buying shares when automatic buying/selling of shares is turned off.

Hello , I can answer for a few of these questions .

At the moment of turning off the auto-buying feature, your country has most likely already buying order pending that can take several game month even years to sell. If you did not manualy cleared these orders , they will go trough even if you said for it to stop. But once its at off , it will not re-order share or more share.

Also , all country have investment funds obviously but if a new president arrive and turn the auto-selling off and do not sell the share he owns , he will hold them forever. I believe that is what happened with your case. I have some of those corps with inactive pres too that i would like to go off public but i cant.

I cannot offer solutions tho. sorry

As for my investment fund, I retracted all of the previous buy and sell orders BEFORE I turned off automation. Therefore, it could not have been remaining orders that caused the unexpected shares in corporations to appear.

As for the investments funds owning my shares, they were controlled by presidents that have been there for a while, have been most likely inactive at time of share purchase, and most likely already had auto-buying turned off. However, I can't say for sure as this occurred a while ago and I don't have the relevant data (and am unable to acquire it).
