Up until my battleship got blown up, I had been running missions to try to repair my negative Minmatar standing. Problem with doing this of course it has significantly reduced my Amarr standing as well which is the faction I'm most concerned with.

The only reason I'm try to repair my Minmatar standing is I do a lot of trading in all four factions' territory so I'm trying to make my standing zero or better so I don't risk getting shot at by sentry guns as well as suicide gankers.

Unfortunately the storyline agent had been giving me missions to blow up Amarr ships which is obviously gonna have a bad effect on my Amarr standing but also of course boosting my Minmatar standing reduces my Amarr standing. Is there any Minmatar allied factions that I can work for that will boost my Minmatar standing without affecting my Amarr standing or is there a better way of doing this? I assume there's some Minmatar storyline agent somewhere that doesn't have amarr killing missions in his pool to reduce the damage to my Amarr standing but I'd prefer it if I could do it without damaging Amarr standing at all.

If there's no way of realistically being able to balance the 4 factions then the only other alternative that comes to mind for me would be to have 2 trading accounts, one for caldari/amarr space and one for minmatar/gallente.

I have posative standing with all 4 races. This was done when I used to run lvl 4s like a madman.
I have many agents but mostly the balance is because my 2 main agents are Minmatar (republic fleet) And Amarr (Ministry of Internal "dis"order)

Working these 2 agents has an affect that balances the gallente and caldari as well.
Any mission that comes up that involves me shooting faction vessels I decline. I can't be bothered colecting tags anyway.

So. 2 Opposing agents and decline faction missions works for me.
I am not hated by any of the 4 main factions.

ps: this is a posting alt :p

I would advise you to check the faction standings repair plan, but it isn't too hard to keep opposing factions in check.

I run missions mainly for the 24th Imperial Crusade but, also for True Power and True Creations. (I can also run amarr navy/MIO missions, but the pay isn't as good) Now, there is nothing you can do to prevent getting faction standing as you gain rank in the 24th imperial crusade, when you get promoted it is the same thing as running a storyline mission, but you need to be promoted anyway so that you can run level 4 missions.

See Amarr and Sansha have really bad standing with one another, so every time I get promoted it really hurts my Sansha standing, and every Sansha's Nation storyline I run really hurts my Amarr (faction) standing.

CCP gave us the epic arcs though, and using the blood stained stars for amarr standing right before I joined FW (gives no negative derived standing) and then doing right to rule for the sanshas side a few times allows me to keep the faction standing for both high enough to where I can still run level 4 missions for both opposed factions. The lack of derived standing from epic arcs, really makes them a godsend for this sort of thing.

Try a non-military corp with a security agent. They tend to hand out more anti-pirate and less anti-empire missions. Just decline any anti-empire missions.

Repairing faction standings, by running normal agent missions and then storyline missions, results in increases in standings with allied factions and a drop in standings with enemy factions.

I have recently faced the same problem, except having to repair my Amarr standings rather than Minmatar.

DMC’s ‘plan’ (http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1263174) is a very useful tool to help you understand how this all works, and to guide you in the rehabilitation of your faction standings. Prior to discovering this plan I was grinding away at Amarr lvl1 missions (all I could access with -3.9 faction standings) and progressing very very slowly. Once I read the plan I moved to tutorial / career agents, circle agents, and data centre agents and then the Amarr lvl4 epic arc …. Now the Amarr think rather highly of me. This was much quicker than my previous mission-grinding approach.

It is possible, and not terribly difficult, to have positive standings with the four major factions. Having worked on this over the last month I now only have negative faction standings with some of the pirate factions. I suspect it’d still take me ages to boost all those faction standings to a high level, but I already have my hisec POSes setup and am relying on high corp standings for access to decent missions.

Of course, once you’ve repaired your standings, it’s a two-steps-forward-one-step-back process if you’re a mission runner wanting to keep in the good books with each faction.

I didn't notice anyone mentioning this; in order to avoid getting blown up, all you need is a faction standing above -5.0. This can probably be achieved by training diplomacy 4-5 and maybe doing a few missions. You seem to be confusing faction standings with security status.
