This is MarketWatch for the week ending 21 January, 113. I’m your host, Vol Jbolaz.
In the Mineral Markets:
It really isn’t a surprise that Nocxium continues to rise in price. A recent Eve Tribune article even began to compare the price of low sec ore prices to high sec ore prices. If these prices hold, we may see some barge migration to the quiet belts of CONCORD-free space.
Nocxium is trading at 552.55 in The Forge, up 6.6% for the month, 569 in Heimatar, up 12.5%, 530.08 in Sinq Liason, up 7.9%, and up 17.3% for the month in Domain to 536.01.
The Forge mineral basket is at 8,966.98, down a fraction for the month and up 1.5% elsewhere. The lowest price for minerals continues to be Domain, where the basket is at 8,791.45.
Ice Markets are mixed:
In The Forge, the basket price is up 3.6% for the month to 1,794.13, pushed up by an 11% rise in Helium Isotopes, where it is trading at the lowest price in the four markets: 277.41.
In Heimatar, the Helium Isotopes rise is a little more modest, up 5.2% for the month to 280. This is offset by a 10.6% drop in Nitrogen Isotopes. The price is at the lowest of the four regions, 230. The Heimatar basket price is down nearly two percent for the month to 1,694.73, which is the lowest basket price of the four regions.
Helium Isotopes hold steady in Sinq Liason, but this month sees Liquid Ozone and Nitrogen Isotopes both fall over 5%, Heavy Water down 10.2%, and Strontium Clathrates fall 14.7%. Strontium is still trading at 423.98, which is 12% higher than The Forge.
The Sinq Liason basket is dragged down 5.5% for the month to 1,831.50.
And while Domain has the lowest mineral prices, it has the highest prices for ice products. The Domain basket holds steady for the month at 1,914.40. The 25.7% drop in Strontium Clathrates is offset by rises across the market, lead by a 19.8% rise in Helium Isotopes, to 294.90. Liquid Ozone is up 15.1% to 296.93. Hydrogen Isotopes are up 10%, and Nitrogen and Oxygen Isotopes are both up about 6%.
And finally, at the Block Ships and Ammunitions Corporation Stock Exchange:
The Big Merchant Bank of Eve took a sharp hit this week, end the week at 110,000, down 15.4%. Cosmoray Holdings nearly doubles in price, finishing at one ISK shy of twenty-thousand.
The Nocxium Index Fund and the Mineral Reserve Dollar both reversed their 8- and 9-week climbs. After reach a peak of 569.07, the Nocxium Index Fund is down a fraction this week to 564.70. The Mineral Reserve Dollar is at 1 ISK 32, down 3 cents for the week.
