[STO] Looking at the Z:D history another way.

I had a thought, and drew up another graph in Excel. While things have been relatively flat for the past while, I wondered how much variability was there?

Looking back, there were four weeks where the market fluctuated tremendously during the course of a week. Two of those were wild fluctuations, followed by two lesser weeks each before returning to normal. I’m going to have to start doing some research if I’m going to speculate what caused these wild swings, though!

Times like this I really wish I had more of a history for the market. It’d be really interesting to see how often this sort of thing happens.


  1. The exchange used to fluctuate a lot more than it does now. I didn't keep track of it like you do, but I do remember it going up and down way more than it does now. My guess is a lot of people are hanging on to their dilithium to see what happens in Season 7, since there are so many changes to sources and sinks for it. I expect we'll see more active trading in the next few weeks.

    1. Here's hoping!Its a lot more interesting to track things when they actually change! As of late its been very dull, and I've been forcing myself to record things.

      I am wishing I had been hoarding Dilithium, though. Seems like prices are going back down, but we'll see.
