I'm unable to find any real documentation if this feature is even released yet as part of SimCity 2013.

Is there a way to access the global market within SimCity World? Apart from just selling commodities though my trade depot I was under the impression there was a way to do analysis and look at trends in market prices.

When I go to SimCity World I only have Leaderboards and Challenges. At least one of my cities in the region has a Trade HQ.

The global market tab was originally designed to be a part of the Sim City World window next to the "Leaderboards" and "Challenges" tabs but it was removed before release of the game.

A pre-release version of the window can be found here.

Currently it appears that prices of goods do not fluctuate on the global market although on release day the prices were fluctuating seemingly randomly so it is likely a feature Maxis is tweaking to reduce server load.

So I guess it's pretty difficult to see the pricing trend of a particular commodity since this window is removed? Right now oil is around 4.5k per 1k of barrels so getting the daily 160k of petroleum commerce is a task in itself. – Matthew Mar 8 '13 at 23:47
@Matthew you are correct. As far as I know, theres currently no way to see the trends. – mizipzor Mar 10 '13 at 23:08
Yes, at the moment there are no trends. Oil is §4,500 / 1000 barrels, Alloy is §48,375 / 10 tons, and Plastic is §12,003 / 1k crates – yincrash Mar 21 '13 at 4:34
