So in all of my corps, enterprise and state, I can't seem to make my prices higher. I place sell at 400 and when I look at the transaction history it shows it only sells at market value of its specific quality. Like at Q250 only sells at 2.5 the market price instead of 4x the market price. I set it to stay at 400 and decrease 5 per month and still it Flys of the shelf at its base price.

Even though you sell it at 400 the game will only sell it at slightly higher then its quality. A little higher if the market is red. I know what you're talking about because I thought I had the same problem. It's to keep from people making insane prices and having the world market from becoming too high priced. If you look at your supplies, you'll see you only buy them at what the market price is x product quality. A little higher if it's in shortage. It happens with everyone. Even though you set it to sell 400% it will only sell at its quality plus a few percentage higher but not that high.

Then what is the point of allowing us to manage a Corp if it won't allow us to control it. If it's in extreme red is a sellers market and in casses like -17 billion surplus the corps that make that item should make what price they want

It's unrealistic for sellers to charge any price they want. Real world buyers have the options of not buying products if they don't like their prices, and of finding substitute products.

Trading strategies are about the timing of a transaction. The setting is just an instruction to sell or buy at the specified price, when the market price matches that specified price. If you set a selling strategy above market price, you're hoping the market price will go up. Maybe it will, maybe it won't, maybe it will drop.
