I understand that you can get a loan, if you have credit issues; within the game.

I don't understand, why you would sell anything; at a loss. This is a trading game.
 
When you buy the stuff, doesn’t it tell you in the panel on the right the best market to sell it to?
Probably. They have made these things too easy, these days. Back in the day; when pencil and paper was our reference point. We knew how to jump from one type of station (agricultural) to another type of station (industrial) and buy and sell accordingly.

There are times when a better opportunity comes along. Certainly before the current mission setup with depots, there were times when it made sense to sell cargo at a small loss so you could do a more profitable mission.

Games is a bit hand holdy. I don't miss pen and paper and I don't ever want to go back to that, but the Codex could've been a store of known prices and facilities in places we've visited so we can reference it when we want. This would've been a better "personal narrative" than anything they've imagined fits that moniker.

In real life there seems to be more produced than consumers.
