I noticed this in Dodixie recently - a Brutix Blueprint being sold for 540.7m ISK when the going NPC price is 570m. I am never quite sure what the seller has in mind with these sorts of sales but there we go.
A quick check on Eve-Central.com revealed that 570m is probably the universe standard price given it is driven by NPC sellers:
And a quick check on the volume of sales in Dodixie shows that a sale at that 570m does occur every week or so:
Therefore, I bought the Blueprint and reposted it at 569.999m.
And, sure enough, within a week it had been bought:
To me, that is an example of a very low risk way of making 29m ISK less broker fees (0.80% = 4.6m) and Sales fees (0.90% = 5.1m). Sure, the net margin after all costs is (3.6%) but it is an almost risk free profit of 20m for 10 seconds work.
