So I have a good amount of capital to work with but am unsure about the best ways to go about investing it in the market. I also have a list of cards that I own but don't use very often and I'm not sure if it would be worth it to sell them off and invest it differently then rebuy them when I want or need them, or just keep them and the extras I have. As far as goals. I just wanna make sure I have enough to continue getting the new cards when they come out and their prices settle. Also at some point I want to purchase certain CRs to keep indefinitely, namely Nahi Cr, Splata Cr, Marlysa Cr, Dragan Cr, and possibly Selsya Cr and Jim Cr. Owning general or guru would be cool but is probably out of my range if I want to keep the collection I have.
Best investment is (in meta) something that combines safety, profit and fast profit. Usually you have to give up on one aspect.
Newbloods investment is quite secure but its not fast (or even medium time) nor the profits are good. With newbloods you typically get something like 20% a year.
It takes a great deal of investigative work and patience to find great deals, simply because markets are quite vigilant and exploiting the opportunities quickly as they come. Taking sensible risks is part of the game.
I usually look for cards that have dropped for few months and try to figure out where their realistic value is - and buy them off below that point making the drop stop, usually price rebounds up and I can make decent profits quickly. You make money only when trading, so cards sitting idle on your collection are not that profitable - best proftis come when money is moving.
