100 Cargo Shuttles were asked to buy at 1.81 Gold Coins and had been there for a bit, 1 sold so it was down to 99 still. It was checked often and was going fine.

Then, just now it was checked again:

Current UTC (or GMT/Zulu)-time used: Monday, December 27, 2010 at 10:48:43
UTC is Coordinated Universal Time, GMT is Greenwich Mean Time.

And, "magically" the offer disappeared. About one [Earth] day ago it was checked and was fine.

To GameMaster/administrators/moderators group:

What happened?

The second offer to buy at 2.01 is still there, however:

Offers can be only up for about a week or so.

OK, thank you for the information Laguna. However, why would there be a limit, if an 'ask to sell' or 'bid to buy' is made?

It's not easy to build any space products..ask almost every leader who has tried. Cargo Shuttle corporations have been seen operating at such low or 0 utilization, that likely no final product was ever built. Ask some leaders who have tried, or go look at the state of current space corporations.

Cargo Shuttles are a very slow market...1 or 2 [Earth] weeks is definitely too short for a tie limit, especially when trying to buy or sell a lot, like 100. Your 'bids to buy' also were there and disappeared...only actually buying maybe 10-15, but you requested 100 also.

When offers were allowed to be unlimited in time, prices were sticky and were tended to follow supply alone.

Since a player has to re-offer, 1) he tends to update his price based on new information, 2) old offers from inactive players are removed.
