I read recently over at Cinema Blend that Guild Wars 2 will have a Halloween event and content update. I was a little disheartened to learn that Arena Net might not be introducing any new items into the player traded economy. As in you might only be able to buy stuff with gems but not sell to other players for gold. Then I realized something pretty obvious: gems will most likely go up in price during Halloween.
So what I'm doing right now is dollar cost averaging. I'm investing 1 gold into gems every single day. I will continue to do this until Halloween items begin selling on the trading post. Then I will be selling my stockpiled gems all throughout the holiday.
I am hoping to make decent amounts of money from doing this, maybe even hitting a 30%+ return on investment. Time will tell if this was the right call, but I have a feeling that every single holiday event and new content will cause gem prices to rise at least temporarily.
What do you think?
