Hi I'm Star fire3

I do most of my flipping on the companion app. Just posting some of my better flips. I thought it would be interesting to see my progress.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun flipping

Start: Feb 23, 2017
Update July 16: Out of country. Don't think I want to actively merch on vacation. I'll be back on RS in under two months or so, if I'm not bored with it by then
Update Sept 20: I had a feeling this would happen, but I have no desire to play RS since getting back. I did enjoy this merchz thing for a short bit (merchz was the reason why I hadn't quit earlier), but irl has always been way more fun 'Twas a good run, Happy scaping!

Inactive flip - 8/4/17 - 7:02AMWhile reading the forums in my hotel room I saw rares skyrocket again. I gave in to my temptation and logged in just to check the offer I left weeks ago before I left. Now I can finally give RS a rest for the next couple months =D Have fun with free rare profits

Active flip - 7/14/17 - 8:20AMI only have 500m to flip with because of the long term investments I'm holding for a couple months. But I think I have enough experience to do well with it ;) As for this flip, all I can say is, once you've witnessed a lot of panic sessions through the years, you'll tend to know when to buy and hold. In this case I instabought and held for only 5 hours.

Active flip - 7/5/17 - 1:18AMSince I was at work, I decided not to burn myself by holding one of these before I got home. So I got home and found that they dropped by like 600m which made me so glad I didn't hold them. I successfully flipped 3 and lost 50m on my last one. But hey, there's probably still a good week of instability on these things =3

Active flip - 7/4/17 - 6:49PMShould've put in for 200m profit because this sold in less than 5 muinutes. Edit: Took out Tumeken because oh dropped a few hundred mil. Didn't wanna get caught in the panic.. PS: Placeholder

Active flip - 7/2/17 - 7:45PMWas hoping to get more, but margins closed. Instabought 1 at 159980 which was my initial sell price, and a short time later this happens. Quick closing margins and one gp cutting is why I hardly active flip. Normally don't post these low profit flips but this made me laugh.

Short term investment (<2 days) - 6/29/17 - 3:14PMNoticed the price jumped by 30m compared to a couple days ago so I instabought one anticipating a small rise.

Congrats on 2b exactly! Very impressive haha
Thank you! By the way, absolutely love the variety in your log
Thanks man! I try my best to find great margins on unexpected items because it allows me to set my own margins most of the time.

I was wondering though, you have some low-trade items like the battle robes that have quite decent margins as shown in your log. What's the wait time on those on average?

Good on you. I find flipping obscure items much more rewarding than holding a rare anyday even if the profits aren't as good.

As for the battle robes, I think I left in a buy offer of 10 each and left it for two weeks. Came back and sold them off in a span of another two weeks. In short, they take a long time. But I usually flip random things on a few f2p alts anyway. Not worth it for a main, but it's extra profit for accounts I only check once a month

Got a some of those congas sitting around as well, wonder how far they'll stretch

I will never trust sof items. I only thought of holding it now because it's a New Years item and there is very low chance of it being reintroduced in the summer. While volatile and tempting, Jagex has already shown us that anything sof related has a chance of being reintroduced. I'd rather not hold an item that is almost a guaranteed hard loss for too long.

Very impressive, i see we have kind of same category of items and cash stack, wish I get on your level of profits soon
Baker on 6/28/17 - 8:54PM

I mean, once we monitor certain items long enough, we get a feel of when they're at their lows and highs. As for profit, try your hand at investing. Divine has excellent guides available that have definitely helped me in my merchanting. Though there were some personal lessons along the way of course.
