Top Trade Hubs in EVE-Central (by number of orders)

Filed under: EVE-Central — Yann @ 2:09 pm

More traders means more chances to buy and sell commodities. As a matter of interest, from a quick data mining expedition in the EVE-Central database, I present you with the top trading systems in EVE. These were cataloged not from volume (which is very hard to determine without tapping into everyone’s wallet), but from the number of active orders present in the database for each system.

The first chart is the makeup of just the top 7 systems (before statistics people shoot me, “Other” was omitted in this chart). As no surprise to anyone, Jita is the top, followed by the other capital systems.

Here is a view of the top 40 systems. Note the high ranking of two 0.0 systems, 6VDT-H and G-0Q86.

I am currently looking at bringing much better real time statistics to EVE-Central – leave a comment for what you find interesting!


  1. Hi,
    Didn’t there used to be a section of the home page that showed which items had the best buy vs. sell price ratio? For example, “650mm Artillery Cannon 325%”? That was very useful– something similar would be nice. Also:
    a) The charts showing Top Trade Hubs is useful and nice. Thanks!
    b) Thanks as always for providing Eve Central. Appreciated!

  2. @jemmus: EVE-Central never quite had that (perhaps you were thinking of EVE-Metrics?). You can compare between two locales using the tradetool (it will go through all items). We are overhauling our statistic system to provide better information soon :)

  3. Isn’t the eve-metrics codebase open source now? You could, uh, liberate some of the stats it used to generate, especially the historical graphs.
