This is the work-in-process of suffering through a market crash when flipping salvage for profit. Unfortunately, I failed to get some needed screenshots, so some of this will be descriptive only. I have more updates to make, but no time to get to them right now.
Sadly, you can do your research and still find yourself sitting on stacks of previously valuable salvage that is now worth too little to sell for any kind of profit. I’m not talking about buying 10 rare salvage for 2,100,000 and finding you can only sell it for 2,350,000. That’s still a small profit – not worth working for, but still a profit. I’m talking about taking the Magical Conspiracy salvage that you picked up recently for around 2,600,000 and looking at the market to see this:
But you bought for:
(and that’s the lowest you paid…)
What has happened? You’ve just experienced a market crash. Sometimes, if you don’t study a market segment long enough, you’ll think you have a winner and get in a bad spot. In my case, I only watched Magical Conspiracy for 2 days before buying in to the segment. And on the 3rd day, prices fell substantially. Selling suddenly got very, very difficult.
