The main news this Quarter was the discovery in the Mu Herculis system and the subsequent rise in prices that disconcerted some Corporations.

Trading started at Gamma Leporis as COSTA NOSTRA COFFEE brought 6 Alloys for 2 HTs each and gained a Dealership.

ROCKET TRADERS sold 2 Isotopes for 10 HTs each at Epsilon Eridani, while SOLAR SPICE & LIQUORS used Crip to sell 10 Monopoles for 18 HTs apiece and gain a Dealership.

ROCKET TRADERS bought 11 Isotopes at Tau Ceti for 4 HTs each, taking a Contractorship, and made space for them by selling 10 Alloys for 10 HTs apiece and another Dealership.

Mu Herculis saw MADNESS & MAYHEM selling 3 Monopoles at a price of 15 HTs, but COSTA NOSTRA COFFEE had already sold 5 for 12 HTs each. TREKBOER wanted to buy at 14 but couldn't find a willing seller.

SOLAR SPICE & LIQUORS tried to sell Spice for 13 at Beta Hydri but were undercut by ROCKET TRADERS' bid of 12, selling all 12 for a Dealership. MADNESS & MAYHEM sold 7 Alloys for 7 HTs each and gained a Dealership, and ROCKET TRADERS sold 6 Isotopes for 8 HTs apiece.

TREKBOER sold the Light Weapons pod from their Clarinet hull and added the Battle Comm pod from the Dagger which is sitting in the Spaceport. Its Reputation has gone up significantly.

ROCKET TRADERS loaded Passengers for three spaceports.

COSTA NOSTRA COFFEE INC was quiet, possibly connected with a re-siting of their headquarters.

MADNESS & MAYHEM sold their Cargo Pod at Mu Herculis.

SOLAR SPICE & LIQUORS repaid their loan and took out a new one for 200 HTs over 4 Quarters. It took the sale of a Monopole Factory, but Reputation rose strongly and Warehouses were bought at Epsilon Eridani and Sigma Draconis.
