Aziz's worries are very real here.
Yes, in an ideal world you are correct. But,
Aziz and others make their living buying and selling meteorites. No. you cannot eat them but, the same can be said about oil and energy in general.
These dealers are no better off than oil investors. When hedge funds or anyone else corners a market as they have. The market gets controlled by them and if you want to stay in business you have to pay the price. Remember these hedge funds types have a lot of money. They CAN afford to sit on the material until a willing buyer comes along. It is a lose , lose situation.
Market manipulation is very real and until outlawed it will continue to put undue pressure on the smaller dealers like Aziz and others. They must either pay the asking price or go out of business. Very sad but true. So, Aziz must pay the price and hope he can convince others to pay his new and inflated asking price. In America the opposite is happening with meteorites. EBay has forced the prices down. So, if you make a living with eBay you must adjust . If you make a living with Nomads you must adjust.
