I don't care about the pricing.  What we should care about is what IP 
blocks get transferred.  RIPE used to provide some partial data here:

https://www.ripe.net/manage-ips-and-asns/resource-transfers-and-mergers/transfer-statistics/inter-rir/inter-rir-ipv4-transfer-statistics
Been broken for a while.
But what I would like to see is a monthly update of the delegated file 
indicating which "country code" lost IP address space and which country 
code gained IP address space - and specifically listing the actual IP 
blocks:
