30 Markets in 30 Days: #11

This 30 day series of posts will showcase my absolute favorite items to flip in Guild Wars 2. If you need help identifying what's worth playing, or just need ideas of where to get started, then this is the place for you. Also keep in mind that a lot of the items worth flipping are also worth crafting!

Market #11: Gossamer Crafting Materials

Crafting materials are almost always profitable flips. Why? Because people don't want to wait to craft, so they use buy out prices. They also don't want to hold on to outdated materials that no longer grant levels, so they sell to the highest buy order. This combination of poor decision making based on instinctual need instead of intellectual patience is where you can step in and make a profit.

Remember to check out my Guild Wars 2 Gold Guide if you're lost.

For the rest of the 30 markets, check back regularly and look at the "30 Markets in 30 Days" label on this site.

    Loving this 30 market guide: and what is most valuble is your psychology and analysis of WHY these angles are successful. Knowing that even though I'm at max level, but buying/selling items at any level can be profitable when you understand Markco's principles of supply and demand.
    I am just starting to play the market with my modest 15g, but I'm excited about reading your updates to this site and raking it in as I learn more. Historically I've always just crafted and sold high level items, but now I'm looking at this market much differently - thanks for the perspective, and keep em coming!

    I dont know whats going on but my flipping has nearly screeched to a halt the last 3 days. barely any of my buy orders are getting filled.

    Maybe its because I only try to flip big profit items that double my money... Maybe the player base has gotten smart enough not to take such a huge loss when filling buy orders haha.

    Perhaps its time to be less greedy hehe

    Shane Sick: I've been having similar problems. I was investing mostly in minis and dyes for quick flips at 60% markup for a week or so, then suddenly both markets seem to have dried up - much less volume seems to be moving and when I submit a buy order someone seems to always offer a higher price within the minute.

    I found a single market where I can still make money for now, but I don't like relying on one thing, at the very best I'll end up artificially inflating it on myself and have to either move on or risk owning a couple thousand overpriced items when the price bubble bursts
