Ore market crashes
Stock market analyst [name] reports
The [planet] stock market took a battering last night, following some ruthless action on the part of speculators. It seems that large stocks of different ores had been hoarded up, only to flood the market when prices were favourable. As a result, the whole value of the ores market has dropped significantly, and many traders are trying to sell their surplus in an attempt to cover losses.
