Time Spent on Eve: 18 Minutes (3 separate logins)
Today sucked. I was feeling sorta sick and lazy. I only logged onto Eve-Online three times, and it killed my profits for today. I ended up playing Eve-Online once in the morning after my day 6 post and then 3-4 pm, and then finally at 7-8 pm before work.
The market sorta sucked today. The price of a few of the things I traded in fell by almost 100,000 isk per item. I am still in the green on everything, but the way I calculate profits for the blog is that I take the total for everything up for sale and give it as the Sell Orders figure. This means that yesterdays total isk of 51 mil was devalued because the price of the sell orders was over priced. This is just another example of markets volatility.
Questions and AnswersI answered all the questioned I had so far in comments, but I figured it cant hurt to repost some of them. If their are anymore just keep them coming! Question and Answers:
Question: Alberthus99999 asked: "Do you just chose random weapons parts to sell, or since you are a veteran player you know what kind of weapons sell well?"
Answer: Actually, that is a hard question to awnser. I guess since I know what I am doing I go to the stuff that is likely to have a nice profit margin, but I do look at everything. While looking at trades, I have clicked on single weapon looking at margins and volume.
Question: Alberthus99999 asked: "How do you know the margins you getting does it appear at market details?"
Answer: No, you have to figure out the profit margins yourself. Simply put, a profit margin is the difference between the highest priced buy order and the lowest priced sell order.
Question: Jason asked: "With so many items on the market, where does one even start!?"
Answer: Start SMALL! Find one profitable trade, and expand till you reach a point where your happy. One day it might reach the point where you have 4 accounts full of trade alts! Simply pick a trade hub or region, and pick a category, say smartbombs. Go through all the smartbombs and look at profit margin and volume, and put up any buy orders you feel are worth it. Then when your comfortable go through another group and another. Generally, the more items you trade in the more isk you can make, just dont overwhelm yourself.
