I have been silent about my analysis of the Domion changes because I did not want anything to get changed before launch. I feel safe to say now.

Chromium and Sylramic Fibers are great investments. I know the other posts have slightly mentioned them in passing but I see them as serious potential and I will offer 1 reason for each of them for you to contemplate.

Chromium is used in 24 out of 36 T2 components. (all 9 Caldari and 5 each of the other races)
Any increase in pressure from manufacturing and you will see stock piles dry up and then the price will start rising due to higher demand.

Sylramics were hit hard when first mention of the increase in armor plate requirements. But upon the drop from 30 to 10 scared people off. But looking at the first Wolf anaylsis of the sylramcs and plates increase showed a 19 times increase in plates/sylramics, but then it was reduced. so 30 x 19 equals 570 sylramics it would have needed but now it is 10 times 19 or 190. So it goes from 30 to 190 or roughly 6 times higher. We have not yet to see the increase in Sylramics prices based on a 600% increase and so I see these as potentialy high returns with little to no risk at these prices right now.

I have other numbers and analysis but these are good enough for now.

Sylramics have been very hard. Almost 300 million units today and yesterday, that is huge.

Jita is almost empty.

info specialist delivers every time.

We'll see if this pans out.

EDIT: It's so easy a WOW player could do it.

8.5 million units have been stocked. Price has risen by 20 already. Smile

I agree. Chromium is a good investment even at this point. While public eyes are all on Technetium and its derivatives, I've advised a handful of ppl to stock up Chromium.

Well, I guess I'm not the only one thinking the same, at least.Cool

I've been rather hesitant about chromium myself; yes it's going to be needed more now for the carbides, but its losing a whole lot of its demand from alchemy, and I'm not so sure which one is the greater. As we see from Chromium's history though it's clear that it can fluctuate significantly and it's not far from a 6-month low at the moment.

It'll certainly be interesting to watch :)

I approve.

I spent everything I had on Fibers a few hours before DT and then sold everything right before DT.

This guy is golden. ( I suspect it is Akita's alt)

Well, let's look at s.f. If s.f stays @ 250 and thereabout, platinum would hover over 10k (neo<->platinum, fullerides, nano, t.c. ferrogel, oh-no-so-many) and chromium would a bit shy from it. Compared to tech/neo/nano, it might not sound big of a deal, but it is a good one nonetheless. I've suggested a few ppl looking for no risk but safe return to go into this market.

I might suggest you put every material in one big basket and consider how valuable each one could be regardless of its value prior to this patch. That will give you better prospective of what's going to happen next.

Well, I seriously doubt S.F.going to stay anywhere near 250.

Fullerides are the one product that are giving me a headache. They doubled in price then started to drop off somewhat a couple of days before the DT hit. I sold mine off just before the drop but I'm now starting to think I should of waited a little while longer, only time will tell...

yeah, the old fullerides headache... i know that one.

For the sake of the math, 1 fulleride is 1/60th technetium, so with a tech price of 25k, they would cost 416,66 isk alone in tech, plus all that other materials and pos fuel cost and whatnot. so technically they are heavily underrated and as by akita's sheat will also see a smaller increase in demand with the patch, but for some reason they where at 360 the last time i checked. So for all i know, they should see a decent increase in value, but as i said the other times i made this point, thats just me trying to raise their price Rolling Eyes

Chromium will actually be used in roughly about the same amounts as it was being used at at the peak of promethium prices (a big chunk of it going directly in the alchemy reaction back then, after Dominion it will no longer be used in alchemy but the usage on ships will increase noticeably), so the price will (eventually) reflect that same peak usage level - a slight climb from its current position, but not higher than it was before at a maximum (actually, slightly less is very likely due to other factors like the width of the technetium bottleneck).
