buy low sell high. not many people are going to give out hints here due to the fact the only way to make money is to have money, or have a niche in the market that not many people know about due to the global market in the game.

Yup. Gotta have money. I'm not as dedicated as some of the traders around here and only clear about 3-5 g per day, which is more than enough for me.

If you're not manipulating the market, then I figure you're making a little silver here and there flipping commodities. When you have more capital and can increase the number of similar investments, you'll see that you make more money.

Just a question, I recently got into the flippin' game (mostly materials) and I'm making a bit of money with it, but I'm wondering: what kind of items (don't bother giving specifics, the price range is enough) should I start buying and selling once I acquire a larger amount of money to make investments? Or are you people no longer flipping and have you resorted to speculation instead?

I created a small forum over this last weekend to share my hints and tips on this.

Not a place to just shout about buying and selling items and then selling all your stock in 5 minutes time.  More of a place to discuss / share ideas on how to make money over a long period of time playing.

Not to say you won't make a lot of gold like I have :)

Well, you can buy lots of lemongrass for about 33c each to start with. Then buy all remaining lemongrass, and watch the price skyrocket......

Like some knob did yesterday >.<

Lemongrass is now about 4 silver each, wish I had of held on to a few stacks. This behaviour is not right/fair IMO, but what can one do?

One can just refuse to buy.
The tp is not the only source.

Just about the only flaw of the Supply and Demand system is that it is heavily reliant on the general collective common sense.
