Everything seems to be expensive now . Tthe 5mn Y-T8 is obviously a manipulation, dont know how long it ll last tho, that thing drops like candy in rat loot and i know people sitting on huge quantities.
If you look at the market the Y-T8 traded fairly stable up until late february, early march and then it started really taking off mid march onwards, it did reach insane level very fast thats true.
Same with burned logic but burned logic increase in price has far bigger repercussions.
The Y-T8 is just a mod, burned logic is a material used in production and it affects many markets deeply.
Im not sure its a manipulation tho, might be but usually market manipulation of basic materials is not an easy endeavour and usually it doesnt end well for whoever tries it. The supply is just too huge, same is the demand and the market tends to balance itself.
Also burned logic started slowly increasing since december, really taking off in the past 4 weeks when i think salvagers just followed the trend, followed the market. Usually with a manipulation other people will fight you and that is usually evident looking at the graphs. Burned logic`s graph is more natural, its an evident robust and natural progression which makes me think its not a manipulation but i cant, for the love of God, understand why its gotten so expensive, why is this happening.
