WTF is up with the price of Alien Artifacts?

It's gone from like 900k to 1.1k on the exchange over night?!?!?!?

It's closing in on the price of a powered unit. it's got to crash soon.

Someone or someone(s) have been buying the hell out of the strange alien artifacts lately. They're probably also the ones who are crashing the market on all the consoles right now in an effort to sell their junk so they can keep trying for high end stuff. So when they go on their buying spree til they stop, which is about 1.1 million, that is what's up. The supply will replenish. Give it time. The outcome of the assignment is too random and fairly high chance of getting crap for the artifacts to go up too high. 1 mil for strange and 1.4 mil for powered is about the high selling point for some time now.

yeah think i am going to hold off on powering them up and selling them. It was a good money maker for awhile, but now the money is just not there. 1.1mil for the alien artifact and, 100k for any particle traces needed is not worth it to flip it for 1.4mil. Only net like 200k when all is said and done. When it was netting upwards of 500k then it was a good deal. Oh well it was a good run for a bit, got me almost 30mil. :p

Meh, fly out to Cardassian space, do the assignment, get one free...why would you pay that much for one anyway?
Do a little scanning in the exploration areas during the transphasic event, get stack of rare particles in an hour..again all free.

seeing as it takes virtually no effort to go from strange to powered and carries no risk, it doesn't make much sense for powered to cost much more than the price of a strange artifact + the data samples. that you could turn a profit on powering the artifact means either the strange was being sold too cheaply or the powered being sold too expensively.

the only sample I usually need is anyon. Like I said, was making 500k just powering them up. It's just another way to get edc. Like when diplomacy came online you could sell jumja sticks for incredible prices.
