What is the lowest possible broker fee that you can get to, and what do you need to do to get there?

Are there skills or standings requirements that modify the broker fee?

Also from the UniWiki on Trading:


Faction and corporation standings relevant to the station the orders are placed in will have an effect on the broker fee. Faction standings contribute significantly more than corp standings. The exact formula is:

BrokerFee % = (1% – 0.05% × BrokerRelationsSkillLevel) / e ^ (0.1 × FactionStanding + 0.04 × CorporationStanding)

(A picture is also available, but it is a tad confusing)

With 10 faction and corp standing, the broker fee is reduced to 0.185%, saving you more than 1% through the buy and sell process.
