Hi all,

would like to know if there is a special reason why the highest value of the market is on the top (and not on the botton)?

I find it a little bit strange that the values in the market are stacked this way. Stacking them from cheap at top to expensive at bottom would be more 'natural'...

I'm not sure if it's an exclusive peculiarity to the English language that when things cost more they 'Go up in price'. Obversely when they get cheaper the price goes down. Hence this arrangement seemed the natural way to configure the Market.

But nonetheless I will take the cheapest available resource if I want to buy and I sell to the place which shows the highest value, right?
