How often does the global market fluctuate in SimCity?

663 viewssim city simcity

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.

 Exports §28/329/3
Alloy42,000 42,000
Coal6,000 6,000
Computers184,375 184,375
Fuel36,500 36,750
Metal31,500 31,500
Oil9,000 9,000

Plastic21,000 21,000
Processors100,500 100,500
TVs158,125 158,125

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.
