Efficient Trading to Save Time

I received a fabulous tip from Jayhawk recently on where to access the trading post.
"I've found one's home WvW Borderland to be the best place to trade/craft. The TP is very near a waypoint and it's close to the crafting stations/bank as well. Usually, you'll also have access to the Mystic Forge in the garrison and when you log back in, you're still wherever you left from making it easy to sit next to karma merchants or farming nodes you want to readily have access to.

I'd like to add to these tips with the following suggestions:

1. Get the largest bags possible for your trader. This will cut down on the number of times you need to load items off the trading post and to/from your bank. I recommend the 20 slot gossamer bags.

2. Have movement speed talents and runes. As an elementalist, I use double daggers, Signet of Air, Conjure Firey Greatsword, Zephyr's Speed, Lightning Flash and "of the Traveler" runes.

    Better use Divinity's Reach, Minister's Waypoint. There you have the account and guild bankers, TP and - downstairs - the crafting stations. You do not fill up the borderlands and piss off the WvW players this way

    The best place I found is Rata Sum. The bank is there, the TP is there, the crafting stations are 2 steps away. And you don't waste wvw spot.

    Stupid tip, WvW is not for trading. If you do it in Wvw, all WvW players will hate you for wasting wvw spots.

    I agree with Afya, the Accountancy Waypoint in Rata Sum has the bank, guild bank and the TP next to it.
    And the crafting stations are a few steps away.

    Have you stopped sending out email tips? I haven't got any emails for at least a month.

    The email correspondence was created over a long period of time. I'm not actually sending them out each day, but automatically every 24 hours after you sign up. I only add to the emails when a really good tip that will last sometime becomes available to me.
