The State of Jita Trade

We used to make boat loads of ISK daytrading ice products in Jita, do you remember those days? It was a few minutes of work setting up the buy and sell orders and a little good timing and luck and BAM 100 million ISK! Well as most traders are aware, the game has changed since the Dominion expansion blew that strategy out of the verse. Between the lack of player owed stations in null sec. and POS fuels being mined on every planet you can shake a stick at there aren’t the huge margins to profit from where ice is concerned. Sure you can get lucky and make 10 or 15 million ISK but the time and effort make it almost unbearable for so little return. We have shifted our attention to Planetary Resources, namely Plasmoids. Diversification is always a good strategy but we wanted to see just how much the market would bear so for now all we produce are Plasmoids. Now that someone was kind enough to point out that double clicking makes Planetary Interaction so much faster we are pulling in about 50 million isk per day running mains and alts. This rate will increase as each of our miners increase in skill so there’s no telling how many Plasmoids we will be dumping into the market.

Jita Trade

The market has settled enough from the Dominion expansion to allow some steady trading. Ice products have dropped in price and trade volume but the supply and demand is leveling out. Dominion brought about some serious changes to the consumption rate of oxygen isotopes due to changes in sovereignty requirements for 0.0 space. The margins for oxygen isotopes and nitrogen isotopes are holding steady.

Some traders are speculating that Tritanium prices will drop with the new expansion in June. If anything, this kind of speculation will influence the market regardless of the impending effects of an expansion so tread carefully when trading minerals.

Topava says, “We are currently trading in oxygen isotopes, with a margin of about 17 isk per unit. We are also trading Zydrine with a margin of about 50 isk per unit. These two items work well due to high trade volume. Always remember to check the market data and see how much of a product is moving.”
