Finding Material Traders and Technology Brokers

Since the Galaxy Map makes finding traders and brokers hard until you've "discovered" them, here are some efficient aids:

Material Traders

Raw Material Trader : Extraction/Refinery economy.

Manufactured Material Trader : Industrial Economy

Data Trader : High-Tech/Military

Technology Brokers

Guardian Tech Brokers : High-tech economy.

Human Tech Brokers : Industrial economy.

While honking a system will not reveal traders or brokers, scanning the Nav Beacon will. This could be a fast way to build your stable of discovered traders, making your Galaxy Map more useful over time.

If you have not scanned the Nav Beacon, a station's trader or broker is discovered simply by docking there and entering Station Services.
