As of now I’ve cancelled all by buy orders for frigates in Heimatar. Why? Because while its nice to get that initial isk that you need to start trading, its a lot of work for a small amount of isk. If I fly to a station 5 jumps away to pick up 10 frigates and I make 100k profit on each, I’ve made a million isk off 10 jumps. Not a good earn rate.
I am going to stay in the skillbook market because the margins are absurd, we’re talking mid 4 digit margins here. Its also a small amount of money outlay to buy them and building up an inventory makes sense in those circumstances.
I am going to move into moving stuff from other trade hubs to sell it in Rens. I might also take up another small trade hub like Dodixie to spread out my goods so they’re exposed to more customers. I have a couple of great tools to do this which are working well, and they will be the focus on next Monday’s Eve Market Tool of the Week post.
