COSTA NOSTRA COFFEE INC bought a Warehouse at Alpha Centauri and unloaded a Passenger pod into it, replacing this with a Cargo pod.
TRADIAETH A MASNACHWYR TEGWEN sold their Alloys Factories at Gamma Leporis after the price rose, making a small profit. Lots of Passengers were loaded into the 9 liners.
AMALGAMATED INTERSTELLAR MINERALS loaded a few passengers.

There are no new News chits this turn. The current list (new chits in bold) is:
Turn 13 P2, C4
Turn 14 B6
Turn 15 P4
(Chits are identified by the Connection type and level required to see them and disappear/take effect in the News Phase of the turn listed.)
If you don’t have a Market position as a Contractor or a Market Manager you cannot order to buy or sell on Contract.
You cannot order to take an OP chit that someone has told you about, UNLESS you can see the chit yourself with your connections. You can, of course, act on a future event if someone has shared that information with you.
To take an OP chit with an illegal commodity (Slaves, Weapons, Tempus) you must order your ship to land On Planet. Do read section 17 of the rules, especially the bit about managing to land past planetary defences without any advantages.
Remember emergency hyperjump does NOT operate in this game.
Questions, ask me; clever ideas, run them past me first.
