Items Traded

(click the item name or arrow for full info)

Fusion M (ammunition)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

1-Fusion M

Initial Buy Price : 48.98

Initial Sell Price : 65.50

% Gross Profit Margin : 33.7%

Approx. Average Volume : 1,000,000 per day

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Average

This was a great item to start on.  While the tails either side of the median price point weren’t perfect it was easily good enough to start on.  Remember that there’s no perfect item, and often you just have to make do with what’s available.  In this case the profit margin was excellent and the volume was huge at a million per day so I was almost assured of making regular profits, and there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t also experience the same success if you mirror the parameters noted above on any item.

Titanium Sabot M (ammunition)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

2-Titanium Sabot M

Initial Buy Price : 35.21

Initial Sell Price : 52.35

% Gross Profit Margin : 48.6%

Approx. Average Volume : 500,000 per day

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Average

Relative to the item above, this is a great example of a lower volume item which has a larger profit margin.  Having said this, when your account hits 10 and 11 figures (i.e. tens of billions) you’ll probably have to take this to extremes on some orders.  An example is in station trading jump freighters which might buy and sell once every month or two, however every time you turn one over you’ll sometimes net enough isk to immediately purchase a PLEX.

As a side note, on the flip side of this is if you expand into very low margin items which have super high volume, such as ore and/or minerals.

A word of warning though:  make sure the margin between buy and sell prices is, at the very least, no less a percentage than what your particular character will experience in transaction costs, otherwise you will lose money.

Tungsten Charge S (ammunition)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

3-Tungsten Charge S

Initial Buy Price : 6.19

Initial Sell Price : 8.56

% Gross Profit Margin : 38.2%

Approx. Average Volume : 1,000,000

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Poor

This was an average item.  The tails either side of the median price point aren’t great although the fact that there’s a lot of volume makes up for it to a small extent, however not many of them were traded in the end and I discarded it for better items.

Standard M (ammunition)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

Click the image for a large magnified view of the chart.

4-Standard M

Initial Buy Price : 5,204.03

Initial Sell Price : 8,000.99

% Gross Profit Margin : 53.7%

Approx. Average Volume : 2,500

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Above Average (although some days at the start of the chart are crap – I’m not yet sure what caused the volatility to be so flat in that period)

Another decent item, chosen for much the same reasons as the first two. Not really a whole lot more to say on it other than it simply worked well during this level of station trading.

Multifrequency M (ammunition)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

Click the image for a large magnified view of the chart.

5-Multifrequency M

Initial Buy Price : 12,601.58

Initial Sell Price : 39,599.79

% Gross Profit Margin : 214.2%  (hell yeah!)

Approx. Average Volume : 5000

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Poor

At times you’ll find market anomolies whereby demand and supply forces, for whatever reason, skew the prices away from their usual price points and provide awesome trades for a period.  I was able to take advantage of that here and made a great return, and you can see the period I was trading had some nice long tails either side of the median price point. Something to keep an eye out for while you’re trawling through the market looking for trades.

Ultraviolet M (ammunition)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

6-Ultraviolet M

Initial Buy Price : 3,722.15

Initial Sell Price : 16,698.97

% Gross Profit Margin : 348.6%  (hell yeah again!)

Approx. Average Volume : 1000

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Poor (but improved towards the end of the graph)

Another item like the one above that showed good volatility of prices and made for a great item for a period.

Medium Capacitor Control Circuit (rig)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

Click the image for a large magnified view of the chart.

7-Medium Capacitor Control Circuit I

Initial Buy Price : 1,330,448.33

Initial Sell Price : 1,889,976.99

% Gross Profit Margin : 42.0%

Approx. Average Volume : 1500

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Above Average

An example of an item that cost a lot more than the others, but was necessary in order to start properly utilising all of my funds with the handful of market order slots I had available. The return was quite good altough the competition was a bit more fierce and prices/order-modification needed more babysitting.

X5 Prototype Engine Enervator (meta module)

The Red lines denote the three days this item was traded on.

Click the image for a large magnified view of the chart.

8-X5 Prototype Engine Enervator

Initial Buy Price : 96,801.53

Initial Sell Price : 193,999.94

% Gross Profit Margin :100.4%

Approx. Average Volume : 3000

Tails Either Side Of Median Price Point : Above Average

The competition on this item was huge, and I didn’t end up trading many for this reason as my orders were undercut consistently.  If I had a couple of hundred order slots rather than the five I had during the demonstration then I might be happy to just let the orders sit and fill over time, but it wasn’t practical for what I was trying to achieve here.

And one final interesting statistic…

 

I multiplied my starting trading capital of 5000 isk by 3000 times in three days.  It’s unlikely that you’ll continue to get this fantastic an outcome as your capital grows as it’s simply harder to allocate all of your growing capital entirely on great profit margin items.

However you can be pretty sure that with some time and effort that you’ll be able to PLEX your account eventually, and it may just happen sooner than you think!  

So no more BS excuses, and no more listening to the chumps who tell you that you need massive amounts of isk to start.  You can make this work with nothing more than a brand new character and you can make yourself space-rich in very little time.

So what are you waiting for… click away and go get started!

 

All the best, and happy trading!
