With buying strategy do you ever find it results in low supply for high demand goods/services? The church suggests using best price for buying... I'd rather use time based in theory though

I agree with Maestro's basic stategy, with a small variation in it depending on market conditions.

If a product goes deep green for more than two months and the factory utilization chart shows a large overcapacity I drop the price to -5/-5.

The GM corps will always sell their products at a -10% no matter what, so using -5% for a stategy will give a good chance of selling yours in a bad market.

Or you can use your CEO or country to direct buy at, say, +5% and hold it in your strategic reserve until the market changes.

As Maestro says, there's as many different stategies as there are people. His seem to be pretty good.

Have a correction on my last post. I have discovered that some GM corps use "best price" strategy.

Doesn't change the premise of the strategy.

CEOS are too large to individually control the pricing so you use the global one
If you are mostly green good luck and you will need a different pricing strat

10% everything sells
20% green don't sell
30% equall not sell some red may not sell mostly good for full red

Question. I'm using time based strategy to buy supplies. Company still has 2.7 month supply but they are buying at best price when it should be -20/8 and put in an order once supply runs under 5 months. So why is it buying at best price when I'm not out yet, when it should be time based still.

I challenge you all to think about this a bit deeper and come to spectacular conclusions. Good Luck, and High Profits!

Unless you are a premium member, you will always buy and sell at "best price" however high quality products can earn you more.

If you notice, countries have no buy strategy for consumables. You can only enter a "ball park" quality. They will always order at best price by themselves premium or not.

Your only choice there is to cancel the order and enter it yourself.

As far as my strategy,

200/10 sell
0/5 buy
