Hello!

I used to be an f2p merchant with the goal of making enough money to sustain membership with bonds. That means having enough money to be able to make back the 9m I spent on a bond within the 2 weeks of membership with merchanting only. Some of this can be seen at the beginning of my log.

I achieved my goal after a year long hiatus, I got a friend to lend me 50m, started a new account and then made enough to sustain membership with bonds. New goal is to make enough money to sustain every possible bond subscription and afford enough bonds to buy out everything in Solomon's general store.

I'll try to commentate on each of my investments in order to clarify my thoughts at that time.

As of my first upload in April 2017, I have 600m.

Long term investment - 7/4/17 - 4:17AMFailed investment. Didn't realize that almost nothing in Runescape lives up to its hype. The Magister was no different. Should've sold off a day before.

Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 6:53AMBought when they were crashing due to low demand from dxp and because they were at an all time low (gambler's fallacy at work). They ended up taking a month to finally rise and were slow to sell and buy. Would not do again.

Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 6:43AMI guess this is a failed investment. I bought when they were crashing due to low demand during dxp and because they often fluctuate between 110k and 180k. They took a month to rise up to 170k and by then I've already dumped alot due to the need for capital.Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 6:43AMI guess this is a failed investment.

Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 6:33AMFailed investment. I bought these while they were crashing during dxp way back in May. They rose back up to 4.5m for a while but I got greedy and decided to hold even more in hopes of people needing them to kill slayer mobs in Menaphos. I must've been high when I thought that 'cause gear that expensive (and degradable) is rarely used for slayer. Maybe they'll rise when the Magister comes out but I need the capital.Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 6:33AMFailed investment. I bought these while they were crashing during dxp way back in May.

Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 5:14AMWhen Khopeshes came out, me (and Reddit) had a strong suspicion that they would have alternate uses than just t82 weapons. It would make no sense for Jagex to release items that would otherwise be dead content. Unfortunately, I was late to the party and missed the initial hype after Jagex confirmed my suspicions. Apparently they were selling for up to 20m right after the Q&A. I had to make do with about 10m each instead.Long term investment - 7/1/17 - 5:14AMWhen Khopeshes came out, me (and Reddit) had a strong suspicion that they would have alternate uses than just t82 weapons.

Lol you beat my amulet of the forsaken high score with a loss. RIP
DNTST on 5/31/17 - 6:54AM
Lmao, I accidentally mixed up the buy and sell prices at the start so the system must've registered that as a high score before I corrected it.
It still shows the original 2.3m loss on there. So did you actually buy for 20k and sell for 2m+? If so that's pretty cool!
DNTST on 6/1/17 - 5:40AM
It was a loss. Bought for 2.3m and sold for 20k. I just entered it in the wrong order at first (bought for 20k and sold for 2.3m) before correcting it. Besides, I'm pretty sure the only person to have ever bought a forsaken for 20k was the guy I sold it to.
