Tip: If you dont see all button text
resize market analyzer window
Tip2: Market analyzer (MA) may
analyze market export files created by market exporter or may
collect data directly from CCP API server (faster). If you use autotrader
you dont need MA at all. This is for standard trader users who want full control
of what is bought and sold. If you use API requests, skip settings marked as
The Market Analyzer is a program
that processes market export files or eve market data via API call
and displays information about the maximum buy
price, minimum sell price and profit
(%) of buy-resell operations along with the selected brokers
fee and sales tax of your trader. It also displays the average volume of
orders for past 20 days and current volume in millions of ISKs (mISK),
the number of competitors, the total income and
probable income (isk/day) , calculated as the ratio of
total income vs competitors. A competitor is a
trader who has set up buy or sell orders and has updated
them recently. The more competitors you
have, the less profit you may get from buy-resell
Probable income is an attempt to
estimate your chances to get income from buy-resell operations. The higher
this value is, the better it is for you.
All columns can be sorted
in ascending-descending order so you can easily see the best
information that will produce profit for buy and resell orders within the
'Select Region' - Specify region
if you going to use eve API calls to collect regional data.
'Limit Search To Station' will only
analyze orders within a particular station when checked. Regional buy orders
are also included into the calculation as they affect orders in the
stations in the whole region. In edit box you can set the name of station
that you want to analyze.
* 'Use Market history for
(days)' tells the Market Analyzer to only use market export files within
the time frame specified. Market files that are older than the figure entered
here will produce no up-to-date information. Try to analyze your orders just
after you have created them and set this figure to '1'. If more than one
export file is found for the same region the oldest one will be deleted
automatically. Not used with eve API calls.
'Calc competitors for (min.)'
will mark any order that has been updated within the last x minutes (x being
the figure entered into the box) as a competitor. This should be the same
amount of time as you have entered into 'Price update interval
(minutes)' in EVETrader.
'Max Order Age (hours.)' may be used
to not include orders which were updated X hours or more ago in
profit calculation. As a rule orders for item with good income updated
frequently. More people participate in sales and create and update
orders. If best buy or sell orders for a position were not updated for several
days, you most likely will not get any income too if you install
your own order.
'Brokers Fee' and 'Sales
Tax' are used to calculate profit.
* 'Recalc. Average Volume' used to
recalculate average volume of items from export files rather then take
this value from market 20 day history. You may use this option if
you collected market export files for the same items during several days.
The more export files of the same items you have the better. This setting does
not work if you use eve API exports.
* The 'Clear Export Folder'
button will erase all files from the local, market export
* The 'Open Export Folder'
button will open the local, market export folder. You can take
the market export files from here and use them with third party
tools, or put external export files into the folder to process them
with the Market Analyzer.
* The 'Start (Files)' button is
used to recalculate the data, either for the first time or when any of the
setting have been changed by the user. Bot will work with export files.
Export files are created by in-game Market Exporter
'Autostart' checkbox will start
analysis when you open market analyzer form automatically with previous
settings. Better to not tick this option if you exported a lot of files to be
able to change settings before analysis started.
'Export History (API)' - if you have
missing trade volume history file, you can create new one with this
function. This function will not export average volumes for
all items. Blueprints, NPC goods, low volume items will be skipped
as they are not used for trading anyway. Specify region
'Start (API)' - this will use new
method to gather regional market data directly from eve API server and
recommended to use. The process will take 0.5-20 minutes depending on your
connection, processor speed and selected region.
After you made analysis, you
can check any number of records using check boxes in the first column.
Selected records have property to occupy top lines when sorted by any
column. You can delete non selected records with 'Remove Unchecked' button.
And most important, you can use selected records to generate task for
sell or buy order installer. Selection rules used to select multiple
records at once using several filters:
'Probable income >' - if value is
non zero, selected record must have Probable Income (isk/day) more then
defined minimal income. Zero value will switch off this filter.
'Competitors <= then:' - define
maximal number of competitors allowed. Zero value will switch off this
'Average Volume >=' - this setting
will define minimal allowed average volume for position to be selected. Zero
value will switch off this filter.
'Average Volume (mISK) >= ' - is
an alternative filter and used to filter out low volume
items measured in terms of a total price of all items sold or bought in
'Profit more then:' and 'Profit less
then' may be used to define minimal and maximal profit you would like to
see in selected records. Use zero to disable these filters.
'Autocheck on start' may be used to
check all items automatically as soon as analysis stopped if you dont plan to
change your selection rules settings.
'Dont Check NPC Goods' is useful
filter if you dont want to include NPC goods to the checked list of items as
NPC goods usually sold good but you can rarely make any profit from
After you defined selection rules, click
'Check Filtered' to check all records compatible with applied filters. 'Uncheck
All' button will deselect all records. 'Remove Unchecked' will delete unchecked
records from the list. Corresponding export files not deleted. 'Check items from
analyzer list' - will check items you selected in market exporter table. 'Checked to New
Analyzer Task' may be used to generate new list of items to be used
with in-game market exporter.
Export Buy and Sell Order
When several items checked you can
generate new list of items for use with sell or buy order
installer. To generate buy order installer list check several items in the
list, define how much ISKs you want to distribute between buy orders in 'ISK to
use in buy orders' edit box, define minimal amount of ISKS you want to use for
any buy order. To make sure you will not purchase items for more then one day,
tick 'Purchase items for' tickbox and leave 1 day in edit box. Then and
click 'Buy Selected'. Maximal prices for buy orders will be defined as average
price between sell and buy orders, but not more then 110% of current best buy
order price. Quantities to buy will be suggested to maximize your income
and based on comparison of Probable Income (isk/day) for each item vs total
ISKs you have.
To generate sell order
list check several items in the list, define minimal volume of items
(in percent of buy order volume) to start sell and click 'Sell Selected'
button. Minimal sell prices generated in the list will be calculated as average
price between current sell or buy orders, but not less then 90% of a current
best sell order price.
Use unique name when you save new
list. If you load wrong xml file to buy/sell order installer you will get an
