While my OP was some what tongue in cheek it was purposeful. There was, not too long ago, a series of posts about how PLEX would, in short order, go to 4 million/PLEX and beyond. The point of my post is to highlight that markets often move in ways that are contrary to ways that people expect. People often like to spot short term trends and extend them for a variety of reasons. But markets will often move in ways that will foil people who think they “figured it all out”.
The usual story is that there is a secret cabal who are manipulating PLEX prices. But if that is true then why are prices falling? I don’t doubt that the cornspiracy lunatics will show up with a “perfectly valid explanation” as to how this all makes sense.
And here (as an added bonus) we have the ultimate troll Auto-da-fe (aka Fabulous Rod and Alpha Slow) shows up and and fill the bill quite nicely. I doubt ISD will do anything as they are “not police” or something like that (don’t tell Buldath he’ll be upset), but at least this troll has been unmasked for everyone to see.
Yes you are right. I totally missed it. Shame on me.
Nope, just a bit slower on the uptake than you. Don’t hate me for it.
(Okay, to be fair I have been thinking about writing…if not a book a lengthy…“thing” on how I’ve become a heterodox economist, but that isn’t totally EVE related nor would I expect you or anyone else here to care about this. :D)
