There are instances of direct GM infusion of products into the market. I have run several tests which prove this.

The infusions have come after massive backordering of certain products, but BEFORE the market situation is able to change to the point that players would notice. Furthermore, it was using non-typical bow-low sell-high products.

I won't go into more details, but you better believe GM infusions are quite real.

However, I will say that I do believe most players are mistaken at what they take for GM infusions. The Aircraft Fuel and FMU markets are two examples. It's almost always player manipulation that's swinging the prices and giving monthly supply spikes.

I also don't think that GM infusions are actually "GM infusions" per-say, in the sense that I don't believe the GMs sit around waiting to push a button and spike product into a market. Rather, I think it's an algorithm in the game that recognizes unnatural sudden occurrences in the markets and goes to compensate for them.

I've also noticed unaccounted for instances of large product excesses being "soaked" up.

It's no secret that there is W3C subsidizing going on in the market, and they have publicly admitted that they will intervene in severe instances; however, I have always wished that they would be a little more specific on their policy. But - it's nowhere near as bad or extreme as some of the more alarmist players would have you believe. On the same coin, it DOES happen.

Vicious and KH are right on this one though.
