Question

The broker bonus is stated to be a +x on the AV table. Since having the AV of a good increased when you are buying would be a bad thing, does this imply that brokers (or the Broker skill) are only useful for negotiating the price at which you are selling rather than obtaining goods, or that the bonus can be a negative on the table if you choose?

I'm pretty sure the bonus is treated as a negative mod when buying, and a positive mod when selling. That's how I treat it in my campaign.

There seems to be a glitch in the book concerning this, as the broker skill should only help you find a buyer. The trader skill is what should be affecting the negotiating for the price (in the player's favor).

The broker modifiers are applied as a positive bonus when selling and a negative bonus when buying cargo.

Trader only allows you predict what the approximate resale value will be on a give world.
