Mike watched as the shuttle boarded below and sighed. “I worry about this new union thing that hires the best workers we have and contracts them out to the highest bidders. Makes me feel that we may lose something in the process.”
Scotty’s reflection nodded beside him. “You really think so?”
“Probably not. Oh, where they go will be an advantage, sure ’nuff. But there are always advantages to be had. I’ll stay round here and keep doing what I always do. If prices and the market change then I will see how the new winds blow and where they carry me.”
“Not gonna react right away?”
“I have old materials, old stock. If I keep selling at my current prices then I will keep making the profits I set up long ago. If the markets move and materials get more expensive then I will be factoring that in . . . when it is time.”
“Some people try to up the price long before they get new stock.” Scotty said softly.
“Ayup. Seen that sort of thing all of my life. Don’t mean I have to do it as well. If I stay at my price point and they all jack theirs who will be the one selling? I expect the market will be full of watchers and jumpers over the next couple o months. Like the smarties who try to trick fools by crying about leaps in Plex prices, just so they can create a jump that can be profited off of. Pump and dump? I don’t know. I sell at a fair profit and move on.”
“You haven’t been moving much, lately.” Scotty pointed out.
“Yeah, well I been busy with things. Chatting with folks and trying to make for a decent proposal with the powers that be.”
Scotty shook his head. Honest and hard working, no wonder the man beside him was considered an oddity.
Price of crude oil goes up and gas prices jump instantly. Same thing with T2’s. No WAY that it is a true indicator but just some folks playing with the market.
Ride it and make isk, if that is your sort of thing. Just remember that there are some old warhorses in this throughbred race and we may try to add a measure of sanity to the market in our own patient ways.

yeah, I am in the forums reading the doom and gloom prophesies . . . but I am old. I have lived through over 5 dozen predicted ends of the world and I am still here.
eve is dying? Yeah, so? To quote far wiser folks, from the moment we are born we begin to die. In my opinion you can lie down and wait for it or dance your way to the final resting place. Or again, going for better words . . .
fly it like you won it
