Market Hubs


Market hubs are centralized player-run markets. They generally have the baseline price for products, with prices getting higher and higher the farther you are away from a market hub – reaching their peak in 0.0 space. More importantly, they have a far broader range of available products available than most areas of space.

It is always a good idea to have at least one throw-away market alt that does nothing but sit in a station at a high traffic system, for checking prices, selling/buying items that you need, or playing the market. An informed consumer is a smart consumer. Eve-Central is a web site that does this for you, but their prices are often out of date by hours or days, sometimes drastically so –nevertheless, that site is still a good baseline for when you are in a hurry or feeling lazy.

Typically, each Empire region will have its own main market hub station with maybe one or two smaller hubs located in a system with a lot of mission agents.
