    General Merchanting Questions/Item Ideas

    Post by Verc on Mon 28 Mar - 1:35

    Hey guys,
    I'm new to the forum, but many of you probably know me from the cc, which I frequent and give advice. I wanted to create this thread to create a suitable section for anyone to post questions or get feedback on any items that they find might make for a good merch.
    Happy merching!

    Guys, I wanted to post this question concerning herbs, namely dwarf weed and avantoe. The graphs show a chance for high profit, much like kwuarms did a few days ago, prompting us to stock up on them. That particular merch never rose as expected, but looking at dwarf weed and avantoe, I think we may get another chance at some high-profit herb merching as the herb economy stabilizes after the bonus xp weekend. Any thoughts?

    I used to flip herbs a lot and I made quite a lot of money with it, but that was like 5 months ago. What do you mean by stocking up? Just buy alot now and wait till te price rises and sell them in a couple of days?

    Yes that's pretty much what I mean by stocking up on them. When Will the other day, for example, thought clean kwuarms had "bottomed out" and would rise, I bought 40k of them over the course of 4 days, but that bounce (rise in price after a steep fall) never occurred. I'm thinking, based on their graphs, that dwarf weed or avantoe could possibly bounce for a profit of 30%-50%.

    I took a look at both of the graphs and yeah they probably will rise. But not sure how much. Due to free trade and bonus experience weekend the prices have been very high lately, so if we're lucky they will bounce back and then they could rise like 50% but I doubt if that will happen.
    But I'm going to buy some dwarf weed now, about 20m and let's see what happens Smile

    Just as an update: Dwarf weeds, both grimy and clean, buy for just over 4100 and are selling slowly just under 4155 and 4153 (respectively). The graphs for them are remaining fairly level..whether this means that merchers will grow impatient with the dwarf weed merch, dump all their herbs, and drop the price or if people will slowly realize their potential and buy..I don't know. Still keep an eye on them because of their potential for great profits. On another note, kwuarms, interestingly enough, appear to be showing a rise today--please posts your thoughts on that...Kwuarms could make for a very profitable flip if bought overnight today into tomorrow or in the next few days. If anyone else has any ideas/responses/questions, I'll be checking daily.
    Happy merching!

    Hey guys, glad to see the thread's been useful Very Happy. I have an item to add to the list of items that could rise for a good amount of profit: pure essence. The problem with it is that because there are so many more botters in the ess mines now with free trade, the price may never rise to or stabilize at much above what they are right now. Also, after accumulating 45k or so kwuarms overnight, the price today has dropped a bit and so the graph has stablilized once more. Hopefully I (and you, Will, with your 300k!) will see some rise in those, but I may switch to dwarf weed or avantoe to give them a chance at some profit turn. Just be wary of the fact that the herb prices could remain where they are, though I consider that unlikely as the demand for herb training will increase as people find it to be cheaper with the lower-priced herbs. Good luck guys, and if anyone has any other items to ask about or put up for debate, feel free.
    Happy merching!

    CORRECTION: 1 hour after previous post. Kwuarms are selling just below market now, and I am up 5 gp on each (lol). As for how high they will rise, it could be up to as much as 3700, but I doubt it. More likely they would rise to 3300 or so, which is still about 1k above where they are now (for perspective, that would be a 1m profit on 1k kwuarms, 2.2m worth). So, spend, 2.2m, get 3.2m back--that would be ideal but also is a bit optimistic.

    Just a brief question guys: Does anyone know if there is any truth to "breaking the barrier of the ge" (ie walking out of the ge, logging off/on again, teleporting out then back) and it having effects on the speed at which an offer completes? I've seen some youtube videos suggesting that you put in offers then walk north of the ge near the Gnome Stronghold teleport tree and, once there, teleport to ardougne and then back to the ge, and that doing this will speed up the time it takes an offer to complete. It doesn't seem like it would be true, but does anyone have any experience with this?

    UPDATE: One of the items that I was suspicious about has skyrocketed today and can still be bought for about market price. Clean avantoe are really on the rise, so buy while you can (for as low a price as you can)!
    Happy merching

    NEXT DAY: avantoe have leveled out, and we may perhaps see a bit more drop before another rise, or they might skyrocket again tomorrow.

    Guys, as I expected, pure ess is on a steep rise today and will continue into tomorrow. They're probably a good investment, and I have an inside source that has told me they'll be going up tomorrow...and if he tells me that, then they will.

    NOTE: 4/8/11 Pure ess have begun to drop, sell what you have and take your gains now.
