EvE Trade Hubs - All about EVE Online Trade Hubs

Trade hubs are space stations (usually NPC ones) usually found in systems that are “crossroads” between regions with plethora of gates. When EvE first launched some of those stations and systems served as main pit-stop for high-sec pilots and eventually the volume of traded goods started growing. There are number of factors that lead to creation of a Trade Hub such as location, availability of mission givers, available facilities, types of planets etc.

Trade hubs goods circulation is far greater than in other regions which provides pilots with stable and predictable prices and high availability of goods in a single station. The volume of trade on such stations is so great that some pilots can spend hours on single station buying and selling various goods participating in a very lucrative margin trading.

The biggest of them all is Jita. Jita is the wall-street of New Eden and the largest trade hub in the game with average system population easily going over 1 thousand. Trading in Jita is a game within a game, high volume of trades makes the “marketplace gamers” really competitive. This results in many traders running on low profit margin providing regular capsuleers with pretty stable prices. If you want to sell something quickly or buy an entire fit for your ship for a fair price Jita is your go-to place. The main trading station in Jita is Jita IV - Moon 4 - Caldari Navy Assembly Plant

Other EvE Online Trade Hubs:

Ammar - Domain region

Amarr VIII (Oris) - Emperor Family Academy

Rens (Minmatar) - Heimatar region

Rens VI - Moon 8 - Brutor Tribe Treasury

Dodixie (Gallente) - Sinq  Laison region

Dodixie IX - Moon 20 - Federation Navy Assembly Plant

Hek (Minmatar) - Metropolis region

Those are the five major trade hubs that every pilot should know. It might be a good idea to make yourself a note in the ingame notepad with quick reference links (so you can easily set destination to them). Here is a code that will make it easier for you (just copy-paste it in the built-in notepad)

Jita IV - Moon 4 - Caldari Navy Assembly Plant
