Expose more tooltip data to custom prices.
Let us use data such as "Region Avg Daily Sold" in formulas. The data is already present, but is only exposed in tootips.
I have a custom solution to this but it would be nice if it were built in.

Here's an example for a rate based on how often the item is sold. If it's sold less than 10% of the time, then post for an aggressive price to try and ensure you're part of the <10% sold. Otherwise, try and get as much as you can for it with a safer price scheme.
check(DBRegionSellRate - 0.1, aggroPrice, safePrice)
You could extend this to not post if it is sold even less:
check(DBRegionSellRate - 0.01, check(DBRegionSellRate - 0.1, aggroPrice, safePrice))
This would return the previous result unless it sold at 1% rate or less. In that case, it would return an invalid source and skip posting.
why couldn't we add a greater than equation for region avg daily sold, I've been looking for this kind of solution for quite a while and the idea always seems to be shot down, I cant stand having hundreds of items to repost every 48 hours just to start turning a profit, if there was some way to incorporate the avg daily sold into the crafting operations for a given profession that would make this addon so much more valuable (something like regionavgdailysold >.5) I'm not a coder but I believe it could be done and omg could you imagine the profits and time saved. I WOULD PAY FOR THIS!!!

There are many valuable numbers that could be exposed but currently are not. 'Count' is a big one, so I can automatically change how much I'm willing to pay for mats depending on my stock level.

This would be perfect!
Also add 'numAuctions' to custom price.
It's pretty simple, have enough votes, so why it still not planned?
Badly need Region Avg Daily Sold and Region Sale Rate in price formulas!
Could i put all my 25 votes here?
Skwis, please post your custom solution here since this feature not being implemented.
