Note: Trade commodities, regardless of rarity, cannot be put into the OCD at ANY level.
Commodity Trader Location
To give you a hint where a Commodity Trader is located in the Universe, just press M and check the Description.
A Wealthy economy can be found mostly in PvP playfields
A Sustainable economy can be found in interesting PvE or PvP playfields
A Unpromising economy can be found in PvE playfields
Additionally you can assume to have a better economy on planets or really special orbits than in an orbit.
Additionally certain Origins have different Commodity items they can trade for special conditions at very special locations (look out for Origin locked Stargates or Supergates).
