Trade value is the sum of {{icon|local goods produced}} locally produced goods and the inputs from trade nodes flowing in (upstream), and minus the value forwarded to other trade nodes (downstream). To increase the trade value of a node a player can:

Trade value is the sum of {{icon|local goods produced}} locally produced goods and the inputs from trade nodes flowing in (upstream), and minus the value forwarded to other trade nodes (downstream). To increase the trade value of a node a player can increase goods produced through building manufactories or accumulating positive goods produced modifiers; increase the amount of trade flowing in from upstream through {{icon|trade steering}} trade steering towards it or again through increasing goods produced upstream; or decrease the amount of trade flowing out downstream, which is by far the hardest to accomplish. Because {{icon|merchant}} merchants increase trade steered out of a node, by far the most lucrative method of increasing trade is to place merchants in a chain of controlled nodes so that each merchant compounds the value of trade it passes on to the next.
* Increase goods produced, by:
 
** developing {{icon|base production}} base production in owned provinces;
 
** building manufactories and furnaces;
 
** giving provinces to trade companies;
 
** accumulating positive goods produced modifiers, e.g. Plutocratic ideas;
 
* increase the amount of trade flowing in from upstream through {{icon|trade steering}} trade steering towards it or again through increasing goods produced upstream; or
 
* decrease the amount of trade flowing out downstream, by far the hardest to accomplish.
