Missiles shoot off the market

31st January 2009 – 2.19 pm

Blimey, all my Scourge heavy missiles sell within a day of putting them on the market, perhaps because I undercut the market. I was still careful to make a profit. Considering how many missiles I use on any individual level three mission and how often I am replenishing my supplies I suppose it shouldn't come as a surprise that they all went so quickly in a station with a good level three agent. Even so, it prompts me to start a third run, again an order of magnitude greater than the previous.

I may have made a profit but the margin is small. Never the less, my wallet sees a net gain even having kept back ten percent of the production run for personal use. Had I sold those extra missiles my profit would have been healthy indeed and equipping myself at cost is better than buying marked-up goods from the market. A larger third run should let me realise the profits more readily, although the slim margin on the production runs so far means I have to finance the costs from my own pocket still.

I make the effort to travel several jumps to get cheap minerals so that I can install the next job, which will produce a huge number of missiles. I am keeping track of costs again so it will be interesting to see what profit I can turn and how quickly this next batch sells.

  2. It warms my heart to see you putting the BPO to good use.

    Of course, in the future you may become a competitor.

  3. I'm sure if that happens you will crush me with an iron fist of industry.

    It would probably be a tech III iron fist as well, with modular fingers.
