30 Markets in 30 Days: #7

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 #7: Elder Wood Log


The way to play this market is simple: Don't be greedy and enjoy the free copper. I look for the "walls" in pricing for the high and the low. Then I buy at one copper over the wall and sell at one copper below the higher one. As an example, last night I was buying for 12 copper and selling at 17, while the "wall" prices were 11 buy order and 18 sell order. By coming over and under each wall I was able to sell at astonishing speeds. I highly advise doing this during peak play times/days.

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

    Could you explain exactly how you figure out the "walls" for an item? This is particularly interesting to me because I have not tried to flip things that didn't seem very profitable to me. In other words, I was using your rule of thumb where you put in buy orders on items where the buy order is about half the price of the lowest selling price at the time. I am also having issues with items remaining in my sell listings for long periods of time. I remember you telling me to wait at least a week, but sometimes I just can't let that gold sit still!

    A wall just describes a big amount of buy/sell orders.
    Lets say you have buy orders for 200 for 50c, 150 for 49c and 2500 for 48c.
    Buy orders added to the 48c mark(the wall in this example)or below that will only be fullfilled after a relativly long time. If you want to make a quick trade you should look for smaller quantities of orders which get filled quick.
    Similar applies to sell orders.
