spotmarket Project Announcement

If you have followed the musings of this blog over the past two or three years, you are probably familiar with our Wallet Manger project. Growing out of the limitations of comparing market price exports from the client in Excel, James and I started a homebrew project in a framework called Yii to help us manage our market trades and have more visibility on item performance.

It wasn’t polished, lacked security features, had many missing features, and was more of a proof of concept than a properly managed project; it was a path to flex our IT muscles and learn XML, JSON, PHP, MySQL, database Indexes, and version control.

2015 ended on a high note for me as I landed a position at a quantitative trading firm, with the challenges of coding the Wallet Manager and stories about working with Eve 3rd party developers broached during the interview process.

2016 will be a year of rekindled interest in working with Eve data again for both me and my partner James. Want to refresh our homebrew project using an updated set of tools and change the focus.

There are many projects out there that record historical data from the API and present it to you. We want to go a step further and build an analysis platform that can incorporate data from the API and use it to create relationships to fuel predictions. We’re currently picking our tools and formulating requirements so be sure to watch for updates as we develop our platform.

Gecko Speculation Results

After months of waiting and watching, I finally cashed out on the pile of Gecko heavy drones.

I bought 326 at an average price of 50.05 M ISK. I cashed out after 219 days for a net profit of 8.83 B. The reason that I exited the market on this item was because of how the daily profit per days invested chart was trending. I missed the bubble on the market and had to settle for a average of 40.51 M ISK/day invested. The time to sell would have been before Eve Vegas.

Producing capitals still averaged out to more money on average at 50.27 M ISK/day; details on that project can be found here.
