Experts are not sure what to make of the expanding highs and lows in commodity purchases. Some suggest the instability is going to spread and get worse before anyone sees a benefit from it. If that's the case, shop keepers in villages across the Tiny Kingdom are in for a rough ride at times and need to be extra vigilant about their break even prices.
While the market is still repairing the harm done by the highest prices ever seen for Stones, Wood, and Woven Fur from yesterday, today's above average prices are actually welcome news.
Today's Price Board - expires midnight July 18th GMT/UDT
Rocks are at a new market low price at 370/thousand. Stock up!
Stones are down from a record price and selling above average at 3,450/thousand. Until this segment of the market levels off, we're expecting it to go up and down precariously. Stone Street old-timers age-old advice holds true here as never before, stock up while it's low. Today's above average price looks like a bargain compared to yesterday's! If you're able to show a profit, use it. If it loses money, find something else to keep your villagers busy until your raw goods are affordable again. To put it in perspective, even the basic Sculpture Store runs red at this price.
Wood is very high at 810/thousand.
Lumber is at 6,210/thousand, above average; the market looks to be falling. At this price even the basic Furniture shops will run at a loss, though.
Food is 710/thousand, up from yesterday, but still below average. - and harvest reports show that price on the rise for the near future.
Fur is only 400/thousand, a new market low price. There's only one direction for it to go from here, up.
Woven fur is sporting an above average price today, but that's still a huge relief from yesterday's stunning new high price. It won't put your Teradactyl Trainers back to work, though.
