I've seen people talking about 1-3 gold per hour, which seems pretty darn low. And then there are people talking like they make hundreds of gold per week on only a few hours of trading.
My current method goes at about 1 hour of my time and ~24 hours of market time to get about a ~20g profit on ~50g invested (I'm sticking to 50g at a time, for now, as it's a relatively new process for me, but I believe I can scale it to beyond 100g with only ~20 more minutes of in-game time).
Is this particularly good? I have zero marketing background or knowledge beyond basic terms like "speculative", but I have enough programming skills to program my own made-up version of analyzing the market, so I'm really curious what the guys who know what they're doing are able to make? Or do those people not waste time playing in virtual markets for fun?
Thanks for any insights!
Edit: A good real-world income clobbers even 20g per hour, of course, but this IS for fun, after all
