@andy,
maybe i'm missing something because your arguement is that the price of a product is base on the shortage and surplus on the market.

the trade strategies for us player does not allow us to base our selling price on the cost to produce the product?

of the three selling options we can choose from, i don't have a clue about how the "best price" is determined, other than perhaps when a player use immediate order. the "time base" option does not reflect the cost to produce the product, but it is base on a player's choice of multiples of the gm pre-set base price for that particular product. the "follow product quality" option just allow a player to choose a price for his product base on the output quality of that product.

which one of these three selling options reflect the cost to produce the product? i can only imagine that the "follow product quality" option has an indirectly relationship to the cost of manufacturing because using higher quality ingredient products as inputs cost more to produce higher quality products as outputs. even this third option is frustrating/error too because w3c institute an upper limit on the output quality that can be produce. also that just because you are using high quality inputs does not mean that the price you get for your high quality outputs will cover the cost to manufacture the product either, because you may not pay attention to your production process and the production process may stop from many game months due to an ingredient shortage, but you're still paying the corp's expenses for those inactivity game months?

I have witnessed it fail a couple times for me. The Immediate Order basically piled on top of the Product Order the Corp made automatically. Could be a server hiccup or the product simply was not available. Dunno and don't care, as I have stock in the products that gave me issue.

XON, if you go into "Products in stock; buy and sell" you can see all the Market prices and you can watch them change based on the Supply and Demand. As far as I understand it, you can mark that up by a maximum of 200% by selling from that page.

With your Corp selling the products you have the same limitation, however your Quality gets you a higher market price that you can mark up.
So as I see it, you have the Market Price set by Supply and Demand with a minimum limit and a maximum limit which is adjusted by quality and further adjusted by your mark up of a maximum 200%. The Market Price is the Base price your Quality and Mark up modifies.
