Scandium is not the only commodity with odd behaviour today.....

99% chance of this.
There is no real demand for scandium/tungsten/cobalt neither now nor in Dominion.
Based on that, they should barely be worth above their extraction fuel costs, certainly nowhere close to 5k per unit.

Of course, there's always that 1% chance that, oh, don't know, maybe CCP would introduce alchemy reactions from R8s to R32s (in which case, whatever would be paired up with technetium would become relatively valuable), but that's a long shot... or they could change something else to make it more valuable, but I doubt that too (even if any of these would theoretically be possible, I don't think CCP will do it). So, you never know...

Man I hope so...

I dont want to spend my entire weekend ninja-ing down towers on the 2000 free Scandium moons that I know off...

Apart from Technetium, what other moon goo commodities are getting fruity?

I'm just happy with the knok-on effect its having on Fernite Carbide, one of my biggest investments

The definition of a set of towers is:

"2 small to mine the minerals, 2 large (on correct gas combos) Caldaris - one simple, 1 complex reaction at each" - costing 300mil a month in fuel

I chose these 3 for being a) relevant and b) for what my 'posse' are reacting at the moment. Using today's prices

At the moment a set of towers for Sylramic Fibers is making me about:
1.1 bil a month (318 mil if I just sold the chrome and platinum)

At the moment a set of towers for Fernite Carbide is making me about:
ASSUMING NORMAL SCANDIUM PRICES OF 500isk pu
1.58 bil a month (120 mil if I just sold the mins, 228 mil if stupid scandium prices are used)

At the moment a set of towers for Fullerides is making me about:
1.0 bil a month (700 mil if I just sold the technetium and platinum)

What this shows me is:

1) I should make more Fernite Carbide... Ride the high prices whilst they
last...
2) Scandium and Technetium is possibly overpriced, although with
technetium, it's probably nanotransistors rather than fullerides
that's drivng the technetium price.
3) The Vanadium price is now being manipulated in response to the
Scandium price...
4) I should stick to making Sylramics and Fernite Carbide - that the
profits on Fullerides is sh*t and I should sell the raw technetium to
the bigger boys making nanotransistors...

Feel free to shoot my logic down in flames.... Razz

Very cool info Triladir, I was looking for something like this Smile

Specifically the current Technetium spike hasn't got anything to do with actual production (at least not yet) it's because it's being speculated on as it's set to be a major contender to become the new T2 production bottleneck to replace Dyspro/Prom come dominion. Stockpile it while you can... and fortify those Tech moons Twisted Evil

Yep... My tech moon got reinforced (as in bigger, more guns form - not the type caused by being attacked Razz) into the other night...

I just wish I had more of the moon goo to sell :P
