2 selling ceilings dropped the price again, 514 to 509 to 502.

So you are saying that the price has dropped a total of about 2.5%?

Forgive me if I seem flippant, but who actually gives a rats ass about 2.5%?

I know I do since the last manipulation almost made the reaction unprofitable for those who import the whole lot.

If 2.5% is your profit margin you are doing it wrong.

edit - and believe me I know, I used to run a 10 POS chain producing Phenolics and Syralmic's amongst other things. Do you really value your own personal time so little?

Since the last manipulation went as far as 15% - balancing risk and reward almost made it worthless.

In response to your edit - you made your coffin there Yes I do respect my personal time and this is why i suspect the post was made, 2.5% can soon become 15% making the reaction worthless.

If you think it's a manipulation why not simply wait them out?

Manipulations work by shifting large volumes at a different price from the natural level. If someone is flooding the market deliberately to manipulate it you should buy, wait, then sell when stocks run out.

Of course it could be nullsec people losing their space and deciding to liquidate stockpiles. With the NC folding it's possible that the price is low simply because they're thinking "we know it's worth 514 but we'll take 502 in cash now."

If that's the case they may possibly be liquidating an obscene amount of moon goo and you should resign yourself to lower income or waiting to sell.
