PostSubject: Get trade prices higher in your area   Tue Feb 10, 2009 7:09 pm

Found this on a website I thought it might be helpful.

Influence your local market by selling the resource that is generally the cheapest for the highest possible price, not with the intention of selling it (although for 99 gold a piece it can't be a bad deal), but with the intention of raising the price of that resource on a long term.

For example: Your starter town has always been on a crystal island, and crystal has always been to cheap to sell so money has been a problem for you. Next to that you have one colony, on a resource of your liking (marble?). You want to start selling crystal for a normal price but there are always several players offering large amounts for low low prices (8 to 12 per piece for example) so you're looking for a way to make a profit. Put as much crystal on the market you possibly can for a high high price (99 for example), and keep it up there for as long as it takes (in my experience a week or two).

When the prices don't seem to rise, you do the unexpected thing: You upgrade your trade post and warehouse a couple of times and then offer double or triple the amount of the player selling the most in your area.

What will happen is this: The other players see your ridiculous price and start wondering if there would be anyone crazy enough to buy your crystal while theirs is so cheap. People start buying crystal, and soon most crystal is sold out leaving only the 99 a piece crystal, and amounts of crystal that will not even fill one cargo ship and are therefore never going to be bought until that player puts up more crystal.

When players then return to their trading post to do so, they will notice that the only reasonable amount of crystal being sold is at 99 a piece, therefore all prices are open to them! Greed takes over from hereon, and soon prices will be at a nice 30 to 40, up to 80 a piece.

Remember to have a higher warehouse in your town than other players, and make sure you can sell amounts of a resource that greatly exceed that of other players in your area, for example: most players sell 1200 of one resource in your area, then you upgrade your trading post (and warehouse so you can keep the resource on the trading post without worrying about room in your own stock) until you can sell 3 to 5 times as much, and actually put it up there. Don't be afraid to use a portion of the resource in your trading post, it will only fool the others into thinking people are actually paying you 99 a piece for small amounts, and as an added bonus you're able to use up some of it when needed, so you can put it back up when you've collected enough again.

This can also be done the other way, but no-one really likes selling cheaper than the rest, so it is rarely to be used the other way around.
