More results for you: Up from 36m isk in profits to 72m isk. The daily average profit is now at 3.6m/ day, or an end estimate of 108m isk, in profit. Interestingly there is a side to this that I have not spoken of: What you will profit not including the initial costs. Since my initial outlay of about 33m isk, my daily costs have hovered around 1.5m, and my total sales are at 133m. That means the profit only including day-to day costs is 106m, or 5.9m isk per day. That gives a final profit, less sunk costs, of Continue Reading →
Final Results: THE END! And a record setting day! And this gem happened today: Lesson: Pay attention to your buy orders when you type them in. This guy put an extra “1” in the hundreds digit, and I made about 70 mil off his mistake. Woo! Recap 30 days ago I gave a fresh alt 5 million isk and just the basic trade skills. Then I almost exclusively traded in stations, setting buy orders and flipping those to sell orders. I started in Jita, moved to Amarr and then to Dodixie, and ended up back in Jita. 5 mil was Continue Reading →
Results: I had my last final today, so not much happened. Tomorrow is wide open though, so I am hoping for a strong finish! Aside from my busy day, not much to report. Mostly trading in weapons and various mid slot modules lately. I did nothing special, just flipped a lot of orders while on campus. The final write up / guide is also underway. Expect that in the next few days.
Results: PLEX was purchased and redeemed today, so I am adding this cost in to the total to keep the numbers making sense. A 485 mil loss would seem a bit substantial, no? Aside from that, new record day with 172 mil in profits! My return to Jita appears to have been a good idea. This goes back to the point of turnover. Margins in Jita are not as good as many other trade hubs but the goods move! I only had about half of my usual order slots going as I ramped up in Jita again, and I still Continue Reading →
Results: So I moved again, woo. Back to Jita. I was in Dodixie for long enough to realize that it is hot mess at the moment. Although you cannot prove bots exist, I’ll be damned if they haven’t infested that joint. I sat for about fifteen minutes updating orders, and a slew of odd updates would come every single time after I updated. Some would be for the exact same price, .01 isk above or below me depending. If I have to deal with that, at least I can do it where more people are buying and selling stuff. So, Continue Reading →
Results: Nothing like a good day to wipe clean the previous three. 86 mil to go to hit the revised goal. Not a whole lot to say, except meta modules are still where it’s at. In an case of synchronicity, Ripard Teg was talking about my experience in the previous market challenge post here. I thought it was a nice explanation that I failed to realize.
Results: Bit of a slow weekend for a few reasons. First, I was not that motivated. Second I was amazingly busy with wedding planning and an arm injury. Third, Amarr got the best of me and I decided to move on to another hub. This lead to selling off stock at lower than expected prices in order to not be hauling anything besides skillbooks when I left. Interestingly, it seems that a few weeks after I get into an hub, other traders come join the party and margins go way down, .01 isk wars go way up, and I find Continue Reading →
Results: Rollin’ along. Trading on the margins. I need to move some inventory at this point, my balance is getting a bit heavy in non-liquid assets. I have a breather from non-Eve obligations tomorrow, so I’ll be working on that a bit. Development of additional alts will also likely be on the docket, or at least seeding them. My posts this week have been a bit shorter due to: Finals. I’m in school and those take a fair bit of work. P90X workouts. Roc would be so proud. I’m working on my meat-space capsule and damn if those don’t kick Continue Reading →
