Make 200k EACH NIGHT - Runescape Merchanting g.e
Merchenting - Why we do it
In one of the most massive MMORPGs on the net there is a constant struggle lead by all players, a struggle to get more money.There are many ways, some better than others, but the fastest by far is Merchanting. Merchanting is risky but can haul in billions for some, those who know the game. After reading the article you can share in on some of the profit, but as mentioned there are risks, so if you are willing to read further...
How not to get scammed
Firstly never buy an item based on just the G.E graph, that can delay and give you your million GP piece of information too slow. Also check in with close friends, what players are selling on world 1 and 2 and other events (like updates).
Now I'm going to brutally honest with this one. Merchanting clans are scams with very few exceptions. This is how they work : they pick an item to buy out and raise its price, then they buy it out. After that they have a large amount of uninformed people (the clan) who try to buy that same item but fail to buy a large amount, thus raising the price. After they have rolled the dice enough they dump the item on the clan which is now stuck with 100k rune battle axes. You can experiment with these clans but it is suggested you read further instead.
Merchanting overnight AKA Flipping (short term)
This one is the simplest and creates a win win situation, well no one loses big. When PKers want to go PKing but they are low on a certain resource like sharks or strength pots and they are in a rush they buy without caring about the absurd price they are paying, we can take advantage of this situation. Every night buy 1k sharks for 5 GP less than medium price, and the coming morning sell it for 10 GP less than maximum price. This can make you 15% of your investment in profit! (EX 1 mil invested = 150k made!)
This can also work for other items, as long as it follows the same concept.
List For Flipping
The only risk is if you don't sell all of your items and the price starts falling, but even then you only lose pocket change.
Grand Exchange graph
This graph can be very useful but it also can be deceptive. When an item starts rising is a good time to buy but when it starts falling is a bad time to try and sell. Because everyone intends on selling it as soon as they see a decline you probably wont get in front of them. What you do instead is sell it a bit be four, when it has raised a substantial amount (10 - 40% depending on the item ) sell it. here is an example -->
When and what to buy (long term)
You buy items which aren't traded too often (black d hide body) or items which no one wants (iron med helm). So a good item would be armadyl chest or rune battle axe.
The very best time to invest your money is when there is a large update which requires a certain item (pvp - food and pots). Everyone knows they will need the item but in the end everyone buys it for twice the price anyways. You can sell it personally or in G.E trade for max price.
When and who to sell (long term)
Always sell long term investments be-four the G.E graph starts declining because if you wait untill then you can get stuck with your item.
For flips (below) you sell as soon as you wake up
One unique advantage merchanting has is that it doesn't require grinding or hours of play. You have to check in on your graphs, but while you wait you can do other things on runescape, watch T.V, read my articles, do homework, or take a break.
