The Trade HQ description mentions buying low and selling high so how often does the market fluctuate. I’m interested in growing a clean city and I’ve struggled with making a casino city and mining/drilling takes up so much space I was wondering how possible it was on running a city through mainly market trading?
Daily, so yes you can play the markets if you want.
The prices can fluctuate wildly. For example when I wrote a post in the petroleum industry thread the prices were
- Oil – §4,500
- Plastic – §12,003
- Fuel – §21,000
Unfortunately I sold all my fuel and plastic that those prices rather than a day later at the much better prices and I had stocked up a pretty massive supply of both so missed out on a lots of free money.
