RAY'S MERCHANTING CORNER

Intro:
Today you make 200k an hour, tomorrow you make 200k an hour. That's the endless cycle of skilling. After you make a few mil, making 200k an hour is just too slow, and you want to make even more money. That's where merchanting step in. Today you make 200k in one click, tomorrow you make 300k in one click, and eventually, you'll make millions in a single click. How's that money for you?

In Ray's Merchanting Corner, I will share with you all the items that are jacking up in price, and all you have to do is go to ge, invest, and you'll be rich!

How does this work:
The simple way of describing merchanting is by buying low then selling high, but that's not where the big riches come from. The big riches come from market manipulation. Imagine an item going up in price. We can assume the demand is higher than the supply. In order for the price to keep going up, we must ensure that the supply never reaches the demand. We can do this by dominating the market. Every time someone sells the item, we will buy it and just keep it in our bank. This way, nobody could even buy the item for max, making the price go much higher. We keep dominating the market until we have no more money to dominate anymore, and that when we sell.

As one person, I can only dominate the market so much, but as a clan of merchanters, imagine all the money we could make.

What to do:
Every day, I will check prices of everything, and once an item reaches its bottom price, I will place it under items to buy. Once the item reaches its highest price, I will put it under items to sell. How much money you invest is up to you, the more money you invest, the more money you will make.

Happy merchanting!


Items to buy:
archers ring

Items to sell:

RSW and I were discussing about runescape stockbroking, and I suggested to post on the rs comm forums about it. Here's the result:
QUOTE (K Arthur90)

My clan mates and I were discussing on this matter a couple of days before and I'd like to bring that discussion to all RS members:

Many of you know the "art" of merchanting. One buys a lot of items, waits for the price to go up then sell all at once. (>>>Warning<<< That is not how you merchant. If you do that with any item you WILL lose money!)
But how about a stockbroking company(ies)?
It would work just like in rl>
1. Some people form a *.B. clan.
2. People give them money, like 10k, and ask: "I'd like you to 'make' this into 100k"
3. The clanmember takes this 10k along with any other offers he might have gotten and goes merchanting until he reaches the said goal.
4. The clanmember pays back the person that contracted him, retaining his (up to) 10% share. In the beforementioned case, the contracter would receive 90k and the clanmember 10k.
And people would earn money with that.
At our clan, we were divided on avantages and disadvantages:

ADV:
1. Both people make money.
2. It is not against rules, because it's merchanting, which is allowed by Jagex.
3. Experienced merchanters, like two of our members, would have no problem in reaching goals.

DIS:
1. MAIN DISADVANTAGE: TRUST. In Runescape no one trust no one. Which is sad, but we can't do anything about it. Stockbroking would only be possible if there were a way to 'certify' someone that he'll get his money back.
2. SECOND DISADVANTAGE: TRADE LIMIT, though that could be fixed by making 15min-based payments.
3. That could be interpreted by Jagex as market handling, hence, against the rules.

As you can see, there are equal number of advantages and disadvantages.
What does all Runescape paying members think of that?
Also, if possible, ask F2P players what they'd think about it.
At last, if any F2P would like to express their opinions, you can PM me in-game. (Though I don't think there are many F2P readers here tongue.gif)

Merching fire runes? wtf...
You don't merch things like that..

1. Fire runes take too long to sell.
2. They are cheap, not very good returns.
3. Merching resources is a bad idea, they tend not to shift much.

Ideally, you should merch the PRODUCTS of resources, droppable items, limited items (such as treasure trail items or discontinued items). Items that go up and down on a regular basis are the perfect items to merchant because they can be predicted most of the time.

Personally, I merch rune crossbows, papaya tree seeds, archer rings, and karil's crossbows because these items are constantly going really high and really low. I also look for items that suddenly have a massive price increase, currently they are rune knives.

Dragon boots and iron bars are good to merch and all, but it's not my style, because the ratio between profit and investment is very small so you make very little money. This is what their graph looks like:

You can also make nice amounts of money with buying sets for med and sell the pieces abit above it.

Theres no 4 hours wait time on this.


You can also merch maples for like 50k gp ea 4 hrs profit.
Euhm theres alot of stuff you can merch..

and like these guys said.. items that go up and down constantly are the best.
