Not much difference!

year number of major trades
1----- 38
2----- 31
3 ----- 26
4----- 39 (first year of v.high)
5 ----- 36
6 ----- 29
7 ----- 27

It's a tiny sample but I was hoping for a much larger increase after switching to v. high. With 20 teams we are still looking at an average of under 2 trades per team per year.
Interesting. I wonder if trade frequency actually means frequency of trades as opposed to total number of trades, which is how I always read it.

The manual describes the setting as: "This option determines how often computer general managers will make trades. The value can be set from Very Low to Very High."

For example, I was playing with it at average in a historical league and there were trades during the off-season and at the trade deadline, but virtually none during the season. Then I changed it to above average and started to see trades during the season. Maybe the total number of trades were roughly the same under the two settings, they just happened more frequently (duh) when the trade frequency setting was set to above average. Just speculation.

You make a good point that had not occurred to me - I checked through my small sample that I outlined above and there is some support for your idea (usual proviso of very small sample notwithstanding). So for my league with data over 7 consecutive years I recorded the following trades pattern in terms of the total number of months of the year that a trade or trades occurred in (total number of trades for year in parenthesis):

Setting on average
1960 --4 months (38)
1961 --5 months (31)
1962 --5 months (26)

Setting changed to v. high
1963 --10 months (39)
1964 --6 months (36)
1965 --8 months (29)
1966 --6 months (27)

So the spread was larger in all years after changing the setting to v. high (though by only a one month increase for 2 of those years). Certainly, on the average setting July was the dominant trade month for each of the years whereas this pattern dissipated to give the wider ranges of months after switching to v. high setting.

You might be onto something here...
