Market Abuse Status: Please read our response

Detailed Description:

Some players have artificially inflated supply and demand on a very temporary basis, and dumping unnaturally large quantities at persistent frequency on the market and most players who are trying to make a nominal profit would agree that this is blatant and senseless market manipulation. There is not any real money being made in these exchanges, yet the damage to players' corps is measurable. I propose a solution that doesn't prevent anyone from purchasing mass quantities of any product. This should be allowed to continue. Any player who is buying mass quantities of product needs to be allowed to sell at a reduced rate in the similar manner that shares are governed. When you do an IPO you are limited to offering new shares until a certain amount of the initial offer is sold. If products trading was governed in a similar fashion, the swings caused by a single player in most cases, would have less of a dramatic effect on players who actually try and run corps for profit. Keep in mind this is just a single person in most cases of product dumping. It is only a matter of time before someone follows suit, and there is serious damage done to player corps as a result. Vote yes to apply the IPO share limit principle to general products trading, protect corporate products, and end this abuse.

W3Creative reaction:

Weak support. The market should not be regulated in any way. trading should not be manipulated in any way because one or several players are buying or selling.
Other players can easily counter any such manipulation and should do this. The GM is will not intervene in the market.
