I started trading in my common market and I notice that for instance, my corporations are buying Electric Power at a quality of 296 even though I have the supply quality for all my corps is set to 180. I have 2 questions.

1) Is this cutting into my corp's profit to buy 296Q Electric Power or any other supplies similar to that high of quality in the common market? Would I be better off cutting that contract and getting those supplies in the free market?

2) What about "local" trading as well. It's very similar to the "common" trading I just mentioned. I have local corps selling to other local corps at very high quality. Should I cut these contracts as well?

Thanks for the help,

Contracts, common or local market arent viable for you, buy off the world market.Far cheaper

You can make it work to your advantage fish, do a search for ASQ, but its quite difficult and a fair bit of work, so for now, do like Blueserpent says, world market. If your own corps sell on contract (local or common market) you will only get the price of the quality produced, world market you can charge a mark up, thats where your profit is.
