I don't mean big cats who are just too big to compete against (but otherwise, they sell for a good profit and usually stick with their own markets and don't try to ruin them or make trouble elsewhere). I mean real trolls who jump from market to market (usually for a short period) and sell items for a ridiculous price (ridiculous even in comparison with the top 3 players,...like 1/10th the lowest price set by Mike). And I don't mean temporary price wars because of tenders.
 
How do you deal with them?
 
1-Expel them from the market? (try to increase your share to 100% even if it means losing money,....you may win  and achieve a personal satisfaction, but the market will be ruined for a good period of time)
2-Stop selling and return to the market when the storm has passed (the smartest idea since you will not lose money,...but it may hurt your ego. When you've been in a market for a year or more, you start considering it as something that belongs to you and it may push you to take emotional decisions).
3-Other solution (explain).

Hmm, I like idea 1
 
Shale I execute?
"[+] Steel 383,351,964 q7.25"
 
Steel market is in a low so I'm losing money, but with nearly a trill in the bank it would take some time to go belly up...
 
If trolls take over just move on for a few weeks, might even find something more profitable Ridiculously

If someone drove their market share on one product to 50% or higher I might notice it. If someone wanted to be sure of getting my attention they'ld have to flood enough product lines to make the store unprofitable.

Store markets are harder to crash than public markets. Due to ones advertising amount. Much like in the real world if they know your name well enough they'll keep coming back, this requires time and money.
Nice little example:
https://virtonomics.com/mary/window/globalreport/marketing/by_trade_at_cities/1526/422653/422659/422 ...
My shop is -90% profit (about) but every item is "lower" than everyone else basically. My service level is very high and my popularity is only half of the top shops.
 
If someone truly is crashing the stores market (or trying too), try increasing stores advertising, lower the prices a little, along with increasing your workers qualification. If that fails just move the store to the fashion or suburbs... If that fails holiday them open a new store and as I stated previously, try something else, or move your operations to a country with less competition.
