Is it? Could it be? Movement! After being so flat and dull for the past few weeks, the Z:D rate has jumped up a bit to 1:115. What could have caused it? Good question. One could hazard a guess, but I suppose I could probably listen to this week's podcast to get a better idea ;)
I'm currently quite interested in the Elachi Lockboxes coming up. The new ships are visually interesting, and the crescent weapons looks very nice. Between them and the Tal Shiar lockbox ships, I'll be busy for a while. Thankfully for me, Master Keys are on sale. If you're looking to buy them, now is a good time to do so provided you're doing so with Zen. Oddly enough, a quick check on the Exchange shows them being 1.49 million EC at a minimum. I suppose the combination of the sale and the Lockbox Special are keeping prices up. Normally, a sale on Keys means the EC price goes down as well.
Of course, that's still price competitive with selling Fleet Ship Modules, which are starting at 5.82 million EC at the moment. Anyhow, onto the data!
Well, looks like the offer volume took a dive. Z:D is up a little, though. Averaging 1:111 for the past 8 days, seeing it hit 1:115 is an appreciable jump. Not a huge increase, but if you've got a significant amount of Zen bought at a lower price, its worthwhile.
Offers for Zen and Dilithium went down considerably, so looks like players are squirreling away for the near future. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes to recover. Mind you, in the long term this is pretty normal.
