The majority of feedback I receive is that Eve Market Deals (EMD) takes too long to update. Well, good news capsuleer, it’s a lot faster now!
First, Digital Ocean, which currently hosts EMD, introduced new Premium Droplets. Specifically, they now support NVMe. This new type of disk decreased the time it takes to download Eve Online market data and perform analysis from about 30 to 40 minutes to about 20 minutes.
Second, up until recently, EMD would download Eve Online market data, and then perform analysis, repeating again, and again. Because of the new disk, EMD can download new market data while simultaneously analyzing the previous data. This ultimately means faster and more frequent updates to market data.
Furthermore, recent updates to EMD include additional information about average and best buy or sell prices by item. My intention is to make this information useful for potential Station / Region trading by identifying when the spread between buy and sell orders is sufficiently large enough to profit. A new post will go into more detail.
