Ok i have A.D.D and i cant get myself focused on how the market works. I have droped 3bil on ships and idems that am selling in 0.0 space for profit. But i am so unorganized. I need someone to help me one on one in getting organized with my isk and helping me in what to buy and what to sell and how to i determen how much i am makeing in profit.

My goul is to get a system down where i can have a nice daily/weekly profit. That can be easily maintained.

My resources are a carrier, freighter

Please eve mail me or contact me ingame to discuss prices to hire you.

P.S. do not try and scam me i will not trade or send isk/idems/ships to you no matter what you say.

thanks

"Tell me how to take a share of your profits and make them mine, because I refuse to get organized and figure it out for myself, aside from throwing isk at the market and hoping I get more back. PS - I don't trust you."

Uhhh... hrmm... no.

i have just gone though a ***** day of learning and what you want to do is easy

first off you want to buy as low as possible , and obvisouly sell at a mark up on price.

you profit is then worked out by miniusing what you have sold and how much it originally cost you.

if you buy a ice cream for 1 pound and sell it to a friend for 2 pound you have made 1 pound profit for example.


no one will give you trade routes, as they could be making isk of them you will have to do what i did and look at the markets at ship/module/commodity prices in each region and then compare to if you brought it in one place and sold it somewhere else at a mark up will it sell ?


that all the help i canm give you and i have been in the market for 2 days now,


you probably want to start off in empire on smaller items first till you get the hang of it.

Software is your best friend.

From market reporting sites to specialised financial software there will be tools out there that you can use to help maximise your profits and minimise the amount of time you need to spend achieving them.

A quick skim through the first page of MD and/or learning how to use a spreadsheet would both be helpful to you.

While I'm not a trading expert in eve (i make my money via investments and other methods), I've managed large budgets irl for several years now so I can probably help you if you already know what you want to do to make money (and you don't have to tell me) and just help you with the methods to make it. Drop me a mail/message and I'll give you some of my time.

I never asked for trade routes or for you guys to give my your secrets! Like i said im trading in my own alliance's space in 0.0.

I'm just looking for advice on how to separate profit isk "spending isk" from base isk "isk i used to buy the product in empire"

bah! nm ill just figure it all out by myself.

I mainly use trade alts for this.
1 in empire and 1 at selling station
and goods go back and forth betwwen the 2
give the first 1 a set amount and once the 2 have got double the start up fund repay back the start up cost to your main..

then all is profit no matter if it is goods or isk..

^ What he said. Also alot of great tools are avalible now made by eve community members that will help you add up your total assets and financhial status, some even include graphs that show your net profits over time so you can study not only market trends but your own trends, very useful stuff.

Not at all. Google Docs is free and I've used it extensively in the past. There's also the Open Office stuff you can go into, but I eventually broke down and bought Numbers instead (more flexible than Google Docs and never got Open Office to work for me).
