The massive Isk supply shortage of Citadel

Hello I haven't seen a thread about this yet but there seem to be a shortage of ISK, mostly caused by Citadel blueprint buys and the tax and broker fee going up.

The price of combat ships, modules and PLEX have dropped constantly in the past 3 months. The ISK shortage won't reverse that trend. As it seems, every ISK is worth more assets every second and the contrary is true, assets are worth less ISK. This seems to favor people who have a lot of capital already and mission/incursion runners who get most of the ISK influx.

It is nice to see some deflation for a change instead of ever-increasing inflation.

The initial shortage was due to citadel BPO but 'only' 24T of citadel BPO have been sold, If you look at the April economic report you cant see the broker fee doubled even if the broker fee was increase for only 4 days (26-30)

I think May will also be in deflation but mostly due to the new broker fee

the bunch of faucets from the north are closed too, that should be taken into account

JC jumps impact somehow? How much jumps per day in average? It might help in some 0.X %'s

Yep, I predicted this long ago. PLEX are still worth what they were 6 months ago, ISK is worth more than then.

Depending upon how quiet null is over the next year, I can see the PLEX:ISK exchange rate getting back to 1250m (if null remains tense), or as high as 1500-1800m (if null gets quiet again).

I'm diversified between pirate battleships and PLEX to cover both possibilities.

I support the New Order and CODE. alliance. www.minerbumping.com

Prices start to drop when 3rd party input software got prohibited, just look at dev blog, dates match almost to single day.

Right, I love having my ISK earn a positive return simply sitting in my wallet!

I'm guessing peoples ability to farm massive amounts of isk in null anoms? It also decreased the demand for plex.

It was a program that allowed to better control several ships at the same time.

Your premise that the universe is worth preserving may not be justified.
Or accurate.
